"...exhilarating contemporary thriller"

Publishers Weekly has just given IN THE BARREN GROUND a great review, calling it an “exhilarating contemporary thriller with a dusting of romance” 

Publishers Weekly
In the Barren Ground
by Loreth Anne White

In this exhilarating contemporary thriller with a dusting of romance, a young constable in the Mounties fights for her place and soon finds herself hunting a brutal killer in a tiny town in Canada’s frozen Northwest Territories. Tana Larsson is 24 years old, five months pregnant, and still a rookie. Despite her precarious status, Tana nevertheless ends up policing the far northern Twin Rivers on her own. The already-difficult job becomes harder and scarier when two students are found dead in the wilderness, their bodies ravaged by predators. Tana sees connections to previous deaths in spite of locals warning her to step off, and with the help of pilot Crash O’Halloran, she works to put the pieces together. The frigid setting is richly drawn, and White pulls no punches in depicting the bleak environment and the related struggles of the local First Nations population. The story is light on romance and heavy on suspense, sometimes detouring into horror, but Tana is thoughtfully developed and engaging, and readers will root for her and her happiness from start to finish.

In the Barrens, a vast wilderness in northern Canada bordering the Arctic Circle, night consumes every hour of the winter. Humans are scarce; ferocious predators roam freely. Locals say spirits do, too.
Rookie cop Tana Larsson doesn’t mind the dark and quiet. Five months pregnant and hoping to escape the mistakes of her past, she takes a post in Twin Rivers, population 320. Maybe here she can find peace and community for her child.
But with her superior out of commission, Tana becomes the sole police officer in 17,500 square miles. One bitter night, she gets a call about the fatal wolf mauling of two students, and the only way to reach the remote scene is to enlist the help of the arrogant, irritatingly handsome Cameron “Crash” O’Halloran, a local bush pilot with a shady reputation for smuggling and a past cloaked in shadow.
When the macabre scene they uncover suggests violence much more sinister than animal, Tana must trust Crash if she wants to protect the town—and herself—from the evil that lurks in the frozen dark.
