When two back-country skiers discover the body of a young woman, frozen into a high-country Montana stream, the corpse is quickly identified as that of an ecoterrorist and accused murderer long sought by the FBI.

But how Abbie Cooper got there is another story indeed; one that reaches back miles and years and through the tangled history of one family.

Evans does a great job keeping things moving, and creates characters who are compelling even when they aren't being particularly likeable.
