|| Chicago's favorite private eye, Dek Elstrom is back in his most unnerving an dangerous adventure yet. One day out of the blue, Dek gets a phone call from a man who is thought to be long dead. Then suddenly, almost everyone Dek ever held close disappears. The trail leads north, to the end of Michigan, past the chop of the angry waters beyond, to an ice swept island most everyone wants to forget. There are no answers there, just more questions. There is another dead man pointing straight back to Rivertown, and the long buried secrets that keep causing more deaths.
