Overview

An empty canoe washes up on the shore of the Nahanni River has the river claimed four more lives?

When his teenage daughter goes missing on a summer wilderness canoe trip to the Nahanni River, Inspector Michael Green is forced into unfamiliar territory. Unable to mobilize the local RCMP, he enlists the help of his long-time friend, Staff Sergeant Brian Sullivan, to accompany him to the Northwest Territories to look for themselves.



Green is terrified. The park has 30,000 square kilometres of wilderness and 600 grizzlies. Even worse, Green soon discovers his daughter lied to him. The trip was organized not by a reputable tour company but by her new boyfriend, Scott, a graduate geology student. When clues about Scott s past begin to drift in, Green, Sullivan, and two guides head into the wilderness. After the body of one of the group turns up at the bottom of a cliff, they begin to realize just what is at stake.

Barbara Fradkin's ninth Inspector Green Mystery is a well-written page-turner with a pace as fast as the current in the famous Nahanni River, where Hannah Green has gone missing. She has told neither of her divorced parents the truth about her trip into the wilderness of the Yukon and Northwest Territories. When one of her group's canoes washes up in the shallows downstream, her father Inspector Michael Green of the Ottawa Police cannot wait for the local authorities to officially take action and heads out to Fort Simpson with his colleague Staff Sergeant Brian Sullivan to find Hannah. Even though Mike is a city boy, he is undeterred by the daunting wilds. He and Sullivan head down the river with a guide, his dog and a pilot, who are intimately familiar with the River and its surroundings. The history of the Yukon, the gold rush, tales of tragedy and the possibility of riches just under the surface are seamlessly interspersed with the compelling story of Hannah and her father's quest to find her before it's too late.
