Praise for The Boy in the Snow "An Arctic setting so real it'll give you frostbite."Dana Stabenow, New York Times bestselling author of The Singing of the Dead "McGrath has a firm grasp on a little known culture, its values and language...This affecting novel should melt even the most frozen human hearts." Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Edie is fierce in her desire for justice...[She] finds herself at mortal risk from the cold, so masterfully described that it chills the reader." Booklist "In M.J.

McGrath [has] a terrific gift for the atmospheric portrayal of cold, ice and snow and of the people who live in those climes." The Times (UK) "[McGrath] is an author with a quietly impressive command of character...Yet the author's real skill is in the astonishing evocation of the frigid landscape...What's more, McGrath is able to keep all these elements satisfyingly balanced." Express.co.uk "One of our most gifted younger writers...The snow-laden wastes of Alaska are so brilliantly evoked that hit almost makes you shiver reading it, and the plot is every bit as chilling, laced as it is with politics, sects and modern greed." Daily Mail (UK) Select Praise for White Heat "M.J. McGrath opens a window onto a fascinating and disappearing culture in this haunting mystery." Parade Magazine "12 Great Summer Books" "[McGrath] weaves a strong strand of whodunit into a broader story about life in a 21st-century community on Canada''s Ellesmere Island. The plot is wholly satisfying, and McGrath''s portrait of a culture that uneasily blends yesterday and today is engrossing on its own merits. The Arctic is a big place big enough, one hopes, for Edie Kiglatuk to find another mystery that needs solving between warm bowls of seal blood soup fresh from the microwave." Associated Press "A gripping debut novel, McGrath transports the reader to a land of almost incomprehensible cold and an unfamiliar but fascinating culture, taking on issues of climate change, energy exploration, local politics, and drug and alcohol abuse. Edie, a fiercely independent woman in a male-dominated milieu, is sure to win fans. Expect great things from this series." Booklist (starred) "An arctic setting so real it'll give you frostbite."Dana Stabenow, author of A Cold Day for Murder and Though Not Dead: A Shugak Novel "M. J. McGrath's White Heat pulls you along like a steel cable, inexorably welding you to the characters and a place that you'll never forget."Craig Johnson, New York Times bestselling author of The Cold Dish and As the Crow Flies "This debut novel encompasses the hard, otherworldly beauty of the far north and the rapaciousness of energy moguls determined to exploit the area's natural resources...[McGrath] skillfully describes the destabilizing effects of global warming, on both the landscape and the lives of the people settled there."
