The third entry to the Nathan Active series.
State Trooper Nathan Active has long been caught between identities. Born an Inupiat Eskimo but raised in Anchorage by adoptive white parents, he had little knowledge of his heritage before being assigned to the remote Alaskan town of Chukchi. He only realizes how deeply settled into the local rhythm he is when Grace Palmer, a local beauty queen, goes missing. Active mounts a search that will lead him halfway across Alaska—and give him plenty of time to discover he is in love with Grace. Closing in on the answers, however, he discovers evidence that points to an agonizing conundrum: she is either dead, or she is a cold-blooded killer.

Praise for Frozen Sun
"No one shows you the ugly side of Alaska the way Stan Jones does."
—The New York Times Book Review
"What Jones truly excels at is evoking Alaska. Whether it be the brief, fragile arctic spring, the hazardous world of the dead enders on the streets of Anchorage, or the relentless rain of Dutch Harbor, readers will get a strong sense of what Alaska feels like . . . Jones has an easygoing writing style that flows well, an ability to create believable, multi-layered characters, and plenty of good plot ideas."
—Fairbanks Daily News-Miner
"That rare thing, a deftly plotted mystery that's also an irresistible love story. With it, Jones's Alaska series takes a quantum leap forward."
"Does not disappoint . . . Readers of Dana Stabenow and Mike Doogan will appreciate Jones's take on Alaskan justice."
"A subtle, vivid, and effective crime novel that deserves a wide readership."
—International Noir Fiction
