After half his body was burned in a forest fire, Miles McEwan left his life behind and moved to the most remote place he could find, a little village in the Yukon called Ross River. He's sitting at his usual spot in the town's one bar as two life-changing forces approach from opposite sides: one is a forest fire, set with the flick of a match; the other is his former girlfriend, who after five years of searching has tracked him down, bringing with her a daughter Miles didn't know he had. As head of the town's firefighters, Miles must confront the fire, find a killer, and protect his newfound family. Andrew Pyper's vivid, panoramic story encompasses the vast wilderness of the Yukon, as malevolent forces of nature and man converge on Ross River, in this "brilliant melding of mystery, suspense, survival, and the supernatural" (The Vancouver Sun).

Haunted. Scarred. Alone. And the nightmare’s just beginning.
Of all the end-of-the-world places he could have run to after he was burned, Miles McEwan chose Ross River.
Buried deep in the vast wilderness of the Yukon, it seemed the perfect place to escape the past. Best of all, he could carry on doing what he did best--fighting fire. But five years on, Miles is still troubled by two phantoms of his previous life: the young man whose agonizing death preys on his conscience, and the woman he abandoned as a consequence.
And in the dark forest around Ross River, fire and violence are brewing. As a small blaze becomes an inferno, a group of bear trackers is about to encounter nature in its wildest form. Elsewhere a killer is going about his work, quietly and ruthlessly. As the survivors of the hunting party are picked off one by one and fire rages through the mountains, Miles embarks on a desperate rescue mission, driven by love for a daughter who, until this dangerous summer, had been a perfect stranger.
A remarkable work, The Wildfire Season is an edgy psychological thriller, a supernatural chiller, a terrifying tale of untamed nature, and an unusual--and unusually moving--story of what one can choose to endure in the name of love.
ANDREW PYPER is the author of the novels Lost Girls (which was a New York Times and Globe and Mail Notable Book of the year) and The Trade Mission, as well as Kiss Me, a collection of stories. He lives in Toronto.
