the dead chill by linda berry


When a young Native American woman is murdered, a shock wave rips through the peaceful town of Garnerville, Oregon. Police Chief Sidney Becker, a highly skilled detective, won’t rest until the killer is in custody. She learns from tribal members that the victim had been releasing animals trapped by poachers. A poacher who caught her destroying his traps threatened to skin her alive.

Sidney believes nine-year-old Tegan knows the killer’s identity. Blinded by lightning when he was six, Tegan has a heightened sense of smell and hearing. He often meets a ghostly man in the woods to conduct secret activities, which may have gotten the woman killed.

Spooked, Tegan flees into a snowstorm. Sidney's search party becomes alarmed when they discover the tracks of a lone rider trailing the boy. The horseman needs to be apprehended—fast—before he silences Sidney's only witness.
