Anchorage, 1956. When Marie and Lawrence first lock eyes at the Moose Lodge, they are immediately drawn together. But when they decide to marry, days later, they are more in love with the promise of homesteading than anything. For Lawrence, his parcel of 150 acres is an opportunity to finally belong in a world that has never delivered on its promise. For Marie, the land is an escape from the empty future she sees spinning out before her, and a risky bet is better than none at all. But over the next few years, as they work the land in an attempt to secure a deed to their homestead, they must face everything they don’t know about each other. As the Territory of Alaska moves toward statehood and inexorable change, can Marie and Lawrence create something new, or will they break apart trying?
Murder at Haven’s Rock
Haven’s Rock, Yukon. Population: 0. Deep in the Yukon wilderness, a town is being built. A place for people to disappear, a fresh start from a life on the run. Haven’s Rock isn’t the first town of this kind, something detective Casey Duncan and her husband, Sheriff Eric Dalton, know first-hand. They get to decide which applicants are approved for residency. There’s only one rule in Haven’s Rock: stay out of the forest. When two of the town’s construction crew members break it and go missing, Casey and Eric are called in ahead of schedule to track them down. When a body is discovered, well-hidden with evidence of foul play, Casey and Eric must find out what happened to the dead woman, and locate those still missing.
Alex Velesky is in a world of trouble. He has the key that can unlock the truth behind a web of illicit payments the Russians have spread around the globe. The money is used to subvert governments, pay off politicians and bankroll terrorist groups. But the only man who can put the information together and get it out to the world is 4,000 miles away in New York City. There’s no way a Swiss banker like Velesky can hope to stay ahead of the killers on his trail that long. Lucky for him, he’s got an ace up his sleeve. Zoya Zakharova, a former Russian intelligence officer, former CIA agent, and the Gray Man’s current lover is determined to get the information and its courier safely to its destination. What she doesn’t know is that there is one particularly dangerous force standing in her path—Court Gentry. In the past, he and Zoya have always worked together, but even two people who have spent their lives in the shadows can lose themselves in the dark.
