When the frozen body of a murder victim turns up on a Vermont mountain, Lieutenant Joe Gunther uncovers links to a priceless mask sculpted by Michelangelo that mysteriously vanished in Italy during World War II.

Blackwell North Amer
Towering high above Vermont ski country, Mt. Mansfield's arctic crags have doomed many a soul - but none more hideously than the man found stone-cold dead and frozen stiff, wedged into the mountain ice.
This, Gunther's first assignment as head of the new Vermont Bureau of Investigation, is a tough one. Initially, Gunther presumes the body to be that of a lost hiker trapped by cold and snow - until the frigid carcass reveals a puncture wound to the heart. Not to mention two feet and an arm amputated with razor-sharp precision.
The mummified corpse is dressed to kill, but in outdated clothes. A frosty Canadian driver's license, which had expired in 1947, identifies him as Jean Deschamps of Sherbrooke, Quebec. Who maimed and murdered him? And how did he end up preserved on a mountaintop for over fifty years?
Searching for the truth lands Gunther in a viper's nest of ancient secrets, international gang wars, and dynastic intrigue.
