For so vast a place, Siberia is actually very small. Everybody knows everybody, and it doesn't take long for the truth to come out... Markovo is a remote river town in the heart of Siberia, a landscape of burning summers and frozen winters. Gregori Nowek, a geologist-turned-mayor, is ordered to investigate a savage triple murder that has begun to obsess the town. Nowek believes in the power of the law, even when his investigations lead him to suspect the involvement of American ecologist Anna Vereksaya, the one person he longs to believe innocent. As Anna and Nowek are drawn together, they begin a violent chase through the wild, ice-bound taiga forests in a desperate bid for survival. Siberian Light is at once a heart-pounding thriller, a breathtaking love story and a journey into the world's last great wilderness.
