Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380724065, Mass Market Paperback)The virgin landscape along the Yukon River has hardly changed since the gold rush began in 1897. Frostbiting winds slice the rugged terrain, and, like a shroud, the first dusting of snow covers the low hills. Braving thick snow on the Top of the World Highway - where one slip could mean a fall down thousands of feet - Detective Alex Jensen is hunting a cold-blooded killer. His only witness is Jim Hampton, a rugged canoeist whose vacation has abruptly ended. And Jensen's only clue is an 1898 journal - detailing an eerily similar murder - that Hampton discovered on the killer's path. Set against nature's most beautiful, yet cruelest, elements, Termination Dust weaves together legend and reality.

Jim Hampton's Yukon vacation takes a turn for the worse when he discovers a prospector's diary from the 1800's. And it dies when the rugged outdoorsman is arrested for the gruesome slaying of a controversial ex-senator. But Alex Jensen isn't convinced of Hampton's guilt. And the dedicated state trooper is ready to track the bitter truth through the treacherous snows of the Yukon wilderness--and in the pages of a mysterious, hundred-year-old journal, which describes crimes remarkably similar--and deadly.
