""No on really hires me to find the truth," says Cecil Younger "They hire me to imagine their innocence." Like his hero, author John Straley works as an investigator for the public defender in Alaska. His previous Cecil Younger mystery was a club selection and a bestseller in the Northwestern United States." "In this, his second Alaskan mystery, a woman hires him to investigate a sexual assault that she insists took place at an isolated mining site where she worked as a cook. It might have remained a straightforward case of assault if she had not also been probing the environmental safeguards of the gold-mining operation and if, subsequently, she had not been found dead in the estuarial waters of Ketchikan township, Alaska."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
