A GOVERNOR GENERAL'S LITERARY AWARD FINALIST Longlisted for the Dublin Literary Award 2018 Crime Book of the Month, Sunday Times, February 2018 'I loved this... very tough and very real.' - Margaret Atwood When Stella, a young mother in an Indigenous community, looks out her window one wintry evening and spots someone being attacked on the Break - a barren field on an isolated strip of land outside her house - she calls the police. By the time help arrives, all that is left of the struggle is blood on the snow. As the search for the victim intensifies, people who are connected, both directly and indirectly - police, family, and friends - tell their personal stories leading up to that fateful night, uncovering secrets and resentments long buried and giving blazing testimony to the lived reality of people pushed out to the coldest edges of modern Canada.
