Boston-bred Pirio Kasparov is out on her friend Ned’s fishing boat when a freighter rams into them, dumping them both into the icy waters of the North Atlantic. Somehow, she survives nearly four hours before being rescued. Ned is not so lucky. Pirio can’t shake the feeling that what happened was no accident, a suspicion seconded by her cynical Russian-immigrant father. And when Pirio teams up with the unlikeliest of partners, she begins unraveling a terrifying plot that leads to the frozen reaches of the Canadian arctic, where she confronts her ultimate challenge: to trust herself. -- Penguin
One book that I really enjoyed last year was NORTH OF BOSTON by Elisabeth Elo. You can read my review here. This novel was a terrific literary thriller with a very interesting main character. Truly, this book had it all -- suspense, mystery, action-packed scenes, and more. I was very impressed with Ms. Elo's writing as were Publishers Weekly and Booklist who both gave the book starred reviews.
