Author Julie Flanders’ Polar Night Book Blast

I'm delighted to be joining Julie Flanders, author of the suspense/urban fantasy book Polar Night, as she tours blogdom this week on her first Book Blast with Pump Up Your Book! 

Julie will be giving away a $25 Amazon Gift Card or PayPal Cash to one lucky reader! To enter, fill out the Rafflecopter form on the participating blogs below anytime during the tour and good luck!


Polar NightWhen Detective Danny Fitzpatrick leaves his hometown of Chicago and moves to Fairbanks, Alaska he wants nothing more than to escape the violence and heartbreak that left his life in pieces. Numbed by alcohol and the frozen temperatures of an Alaskan winter, Danny is content with a dead-end job investigating Fairbanks' cold cases. 

That all changes when a pretty blond woman goes missing on the winter solstice, and Danny stumbles upon some surprising connections between her disappearance and that of another Fairbanks woman three years earlier. Forced out of his lethargy, Danny sets out to both find the missing woman and solve his own cold case. 

The investigation points Danny towards Aleksei Nechayev, the handsome and charming proprietor of an old asylum turned haunted tourist attraction in the Arctic town of Coldfoot. As he tries to find a link between Nechayev and his case, Danny's instinct tells him that Nechayev is much more than what he seems. Danny has no idea that Nechayev is hiding a secret that is much more horrifying than anything he could ever have imagined. 

As his obsession with finding the missing women grows, Danny finds his own life in danger. And when the truth is finally revealed, the world as he knows it will never be the same.

  1. Hi Mason and Julie .. I am so looking forward to reading Polar Night - Julie's descriptions during the A-Z on Alaska were such interesting reads ..

    Cheers for now and all the very best - Hilary

  2. Mason - Thanks for sharing Polar Night with us. I like the premise very much of a character moving to a completely different setting and trying to start over. The story sounds intriguing too.

    I wish you much success, Julie.
