Finland, 1910: Fourteen-year-old Sig is shocked to see a hole in the frozen lake outside his family's cabin and to find his father's corpse nearby. Why did Einar steer his dog sled across the lake instead of taking the safer land route? Sig's sister and stepmother go for help, leaving Sig alone with Einar's body in the cabin. Soon after, an armed stranger barges in, demanding a share of Einar's stolen gold.

Suspense lovers will devour this taut, high-stakes story by British author Marcus Sedgwick. Situated in the sparsely populated Arctic Circle in 1910, Sig Andersson sits with the frozen corpse of this father and a Colt revolver. A mysterious knock at the door changes everything and leads to an explosive ending that will satisfy and surprise.

Really solid story about a boy who must unravel his father's death-by-freezing. When an old debt comes due and a man who's been stalking the family for 10 years finds the boy tending his father's corpse, the boy must figure out how to survive the encounter; the man clearly believes the boy (and maybe his older sister) know where their father hid some gold from his days as an assayist for a Yukon gold broker. The boy's one weapon is a Colt revolver hidden in a storeroom, but it turns out he has more resources than that alone.
