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.

Can't Stop Thinking About This Book
Any additional comments?
An amazing sense of place. So fully entrenched in Northern Canada. The characters, the weather, the land, the relationships, the backstories, the language, the plot. This is not a story put in the north, it is a story grown out of the north.
Perfect to listen to while I'm sweltering though my Texas summer walks. Even though I finished it 3 books ago, I keep thinking about it.

I almost gave up after the creepy opening scene,..
...but I'm glad I did not. This is my third suspense thriller by romance novel author Loreth Anne White with the others being in In The Waning Light which includes multiple extremely explicit sex scenes and The Dark Lure which is as much romance as suspense. In The Barren Ground shows maturity as it is a pure suspense thriller with some romance incidental to the story. It is a strong suspense thriller. Narration by actor Cara Gee comes as a surprise because this is the first book that I have listened to her narrate. My decision was between 3 and 4 stars.
