Overview: In the vast frozen reaches of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, fierce winter storms can hit without notice. In the white translucence of one such blizzard, Norm Haas manages to escape from his prison work detail without detection.
After agonizing days of blistering cold, Norman finds himself at the farmhouse of Liesl Tiomenen, a solitary woman who gives him temporary shelter while keeping him at a comfortable distance with her late husband’s shotgun. When she tries to turn him in, he escapes again. Thus begins a riveting story of Norman’s journey back to his past, back to the woman he loved—and still loves—who betrayed him, back to his brother who helped put him away, and back to a dangerous web of family allegiances, deceptions, and intrigue.
On Norman’s trail is Del Maki, the constable of Yellow Dog Township, who is haunted by his own disappointment and loss. As he tracks Norman through the blizzard, Maki’s search becomes a form of personal salvation.
