A new location for a detective tale, the far Canadian North, beyond the tree line.

There's never been a murder in Remarkable Bay...until now. Billions in oil are discovered near this remote arctic town. Joyce Matthews is desperate to find her missing father so she turns to the only private eye for a thousand miles, Blake Massey. He's retreated from the big city to the pristine cold of Remarkable Bay to start a new life. What he may find is a quick death as evil men travel to town to claim billions of oil locked under the frozen tundra. Joyce's father discovered it, claimed it and now he's disappeared. Women are Blake Massey's Weakness Joyce is everything Blake left behind; a beautiful woman willing to share everything with him except the truth. The last woman he trusted left him dying in a rainy parking lot with his guts slashed open. How stupid is Massey to let it happen again? He knows that answer and it pays him fifty bucks a day. Murder Migrates North Remarkable Bay lies north of the tree line, an old Hudson's Bay trading post on the frozen edge of the civilized world. People die here all the time, from cold or drink or carelessness but there has never been a murder in Remarkable Bay for two hundred years, until now. Like every migrating beast, murder moves north in a herd; bringing more death to the cruelest climate in the world. If you like classic noir with an icy twist, come to Remarkable Bay! Blake Massey is classic LA noir but there are no palm trees or sandy beaches. Exposed flesh doesn't tan, it freezes in two minutes. Massey's the only private eye for a thousand miles. Staying alive depends on trusting a beautiful woman to tell the truth, something that's never worked for him before... The isolated town of Remarkable Bay is vulnerable as evil migrates north to claim a billion dollars in oil. Brave men have died for a lot less. Only Blake Massey is willing to help the desperate daughter of the geologist who discovered the vast oil deposit nearby. She's beautiful and offering him a million dollars to keep her alive to claim her rights to her father's discovery. The men of Remarkable are starting over, retreating to the edge of civilization and a stark, simple life. The women are independent, free-spirited and sexy, although their bodies are hidden under many, many layers of clothing. The discovery of vast oil riches changes everything, including a quick, violent reduction in the town's population. This noir mystery is ice cold and raw as an arctic wind. If you're a fan of Swedish mysteries set in the Scandinavian winter, wait until you read this thriller set in Canada's true north on the bleak shores of Hudson's Bay.
