Book Review

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

Jacob Rohn is part of a special investigation team under the control of the State of Alaska's Attorney General. It is based in Anchorage, where Rohn lives with his black Labrador retriever, Archie. Rohn has been assigned to look into a six-month old case in Fort Yukon, a small town within the Arctic circle. A young Canadian couple, who were working as caretakers for a resort, were found dead in their cabin, and the case was initially considered to be a murder/suicide. Rohn travels up to Fort Yukon and visits the scene of the crime. On his way back to town, he narrowly escapes being killed by an unseen sniper. Rohn works with Chief Sully, the head of the Fort Yukon police, to finally determine if both the husband and wife were murdered and by whom.

"Frozen Lies" is an entertaining and fast-paced police procedural. I was intrigued by the novel's description as I enjoy reading books based in the frozen north, and I was not disappointed. The harsh, yet beautiful, environment found in the Arctic Circle is ever-present in this book. Author R.A. Quinn's unique insights as someone who worked in law enforcement, and who actually was a police officer in Fort Yukon, help make the book come alive. The reader gets to follow Rohn as he begins his investigation and starts looking for clues to solve the six-month case. Quinn's appreciation for nature in general, and that environment in particular, also lends a lyrical tone to the outdoor descriptions found in the book. I'm looking forward to further books in what could become a great series.
