In a breathtaking land of ice and cold, death has come, by fire.

In the lingering chill of the early Alaskan spring, famed “musher” Jessie Arnold confronts the charred remains of a favorite local pub, destroyed by a suspicious blaze that claimed an innocent, unsuspecting life. This lull between racing seasons is meant to be a time of grueling training and conditioning for Jessie and her dogsled team, but instead it has become a time of fear. Because the burning has only begun, and its flames will scar and blister Jessie’s world in ways she can barely imagine. And in the wake of more death, her next race will be one for survival, as she struggles to determine whether a desperate friend is a terrified victim, or a killer.

    " Struck me as scary & depressing & I didn't enjoy the setting. I won't be reading the series. "

    " I pretty much have read this entire series :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 5/10/2013

    " It almost was a really liked it. There were a couple of times I wanted to shout at Jessie for not telling the whole story. But, how could the book continue if she did? It is about a young lady musher, her dogs, and how she gets caught in a murder. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 7/18/2012

    " In Beneath the Ashes, Sue Henry successfully creates suspense, but with more gimmicks and less character development than usual. The book does what a mystery novel should but, in my opinion, without distinction. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 6/28/2012

    " This is a cheesy murder mystery. I gave this type of book up after college, but it takes place in Alaska, so I got it for my trip. I read it in less than a day and it was entertaining, east read. I liked the parts about dog sledding/mushing, but the end was not tied up very well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crazy Red-head | 1/30/2012

    " I really enjoyed her descriptions of the glaciers & water & forests. I also enjoyed how she detailed the building of Jessie's new log cabin. I felt I was there with watching it go up. Felt extra bad about the character, Bonnie,& how that was resolved. "
