A lakeside town in the depths of Michigan must face its darkest secrets . . .
In the dead of a Michigan winter, the small town of Starvation Lake is shaken by what washes up on the lake's edge one night: pieces of the snowmobile which disappeared into the murky depths years ago, along with the town's legendary hockey coach. But everybody knows this accident happened on another lake, five miles away. As rumours start to fly, the evidence points one way: murder.
To Gus Carpenter, editor of the local paper and long-serving victim of the town's hostility for a youthful mistake, this is a double-edged sword. He has the chance to prove himself as a reporter, but the deeper he digs the closer he comes to some shadowy gaps in the town's past which are hiding some disturbing secrets. Secrets which those closest to him will kill to keep hidden.
The first novel in Bryan Gruley's award-winning Starvation Lake series.
