2017 Arthur Ellis Award, Best First Novel -- Winner

A dark and suspenseful noir thriller, set in the Yukon.

As winter closes in and the roads snow over in Dawson City, Yukon, newly arrived journalist Jo Silver investigates the dubious suicide of a local politician and quickly discovers that not everything in the sleepy tourist town is what it seems. Before long, law enforcement begins treating the death as a possible murder and Jo is the prime suspect.

Strange Things Done is a top-notch thriller -- a tense and stylish crime novel that explores the double themes of trust and betrayal.

Not too impressed with this one. The main character was not very likeable and the story dragged a bit in the middle. I don't think I'll another one by her.

This book had me hooked just enough to want to find out what was going on. I liked the atmosphere. Some of the characters were memorable and some of the plot exciting. When all is said and done, I would read more by this author.
