Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
When Jenny Willson initiates a covert inquiry into a proposed ski hill in Yoho National Park, she's quickly drawn into a web of political, environmental, and criminal intrigue that threatens to tear apart a small B.C. town, pitting neighbour against neighbour, friend against friend, and family against family. After a wolverine researcher dies in a mysterious fire, Willson forms an uneasy alliance with an RCMP corporal and an Idaho-based investigative journalist to expose the truth behind the ski hill project. With characteristic tenacity, she discovers that perception differs from reality. Willson ends up in a showdown with the American proponent, her own agency, and the political puppeteers who pull strings in the shadows. Willson must decide if she's willing to risk her career--and perhaps her life and the lives of those close to her--to reveal what lurks in the darkness.
