        Aka Melanie McGrathI was born in Romford, Essex, the third of four children My parents, Peter and Margaret, had moved out of East London some time before, looking for a quieter, spacious life They thought of themselves as upwardly mobile, which they were We moved a lot during my childhood, first to Basildon in Essex, then to a village in Germany, from there Kent, then north to Lancashire, south again to Buckinghamshire and so on I tried pretty much every kind of school, from German kindergarten through catholic convent to bog standard state grammar After graduating high school with a mixture of arts and science A levels, I won a place at Oxford to study Politics, Philosophy and Economics, imagining this combination would give me a grounding in real life Ha I was soon writing essays on whether I could prove I wasn t a bat and what might happen to the price of tennis rackets if tennis ball production was moved to Mars After graduation, I worked in book publishing, turning to writing at first part time then full time in my late twenties Looking back, I wish I d had the guts to do that when I first came out of university I always knew I wanted to write but didn t think that Essex girls who knew how to prove they weren t bats, and not much else, really stood a chance Although I am now a full time writer, I have enjoyed teaching creative writing at Roehampton University in London, at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in the USA and at The Arvon Foundation After spells living in Las Vegas, Nevada and Nicaragua, I am for the time being settled in London and on the Kent coast I have had the extraordinary privilege to be able to travel widely to Ellesmere Island in the Canadian High Arctic, to Alaska, Iceland, Madagascar, Mali, Namibia, Ethiopia, Gabon, Malaysia, Russia, China, Guatemala, El Salvador, Mexico and many other places besides Place occupies a large part in my heart and in my work Currently, I am writing fiction, nonfiction and journalism I have also written and presented for TV and radio.

    1. The Bone Seeker – An Arctic ThrillerIf you are looking for a crime thriller that has bodies dropping left right and centre and car chases and hard men then this book is not for you. If you want a well thought out plot a feel of the desolation for being a forgotten people and governmental cover-ups and being at the end of the world then this is the book for you. The Bone Seeker by M.J McGrath is set in the arctic world of Ellesmere Island and the Inuit people who are the unwitting victims as a [...]


    2. enjoyed this crime thriller based in ellesmere island but felt it was abit slow to start off with though. thought was interesting the sub plots within the whole story and didn't disappoint once the story got going though and made you wonder who the murderer was.


    3. I was surprised when I read The Bone Seeker at how wonderfully well this book is written. The book starts out with an Inuit student of Edie Kiglatuk being found dead. While trying to untangle the case, it is dicovered what appears to be a big conspiracy involved. The descriptions of the Canadian artic and the people who live there is excellent. Since this is the 3rd Edie Kiglatuk mystery, I shall be on the search for the first 2. I higly recomment this book to any who love a great mystery!


    4. What a remarkable story.McGrath has taken her Edie Kiglatuk series to new heights and created an account, although centred on a small Inuit community that is representative of the wider world; its corruption; the desire to cover up secrets and lies.The brutal killing of a young native girl; a bright and beautiful pupil Edie had pleasure in teaching shocks the community. Suspicion falls on the outsiders from a near-by military camp where soldiers are drawn into town for alcohol. and more serious [...]


    5. Edie Kiglatuk has gone to teach summer school in Kuujuak in the high arctic on Ellesmere Island, and her most promising student, Martha, disappears only to be found murdered. When Edie and Derek begin investigating, they are hampered by a lawyer's push to get an environmental clean up going as soon as possible. The lawyer is working with Martha's family, because her father has been fighting the Canadian government for this clean up for decades. However, he also wants justice for his daughter. Th [...]


    6. McGrath returns with another thrilling Edie Kiglatuk mystery, set in Canada's Arctic. When Kiglatuk discovers one of her female students dead in a toxic lake, she enlists the help of Sergeant Derek Palliser, part of the local police force, as well as a close friend of Kiglatuk, known to series readers. Promising to uncover the truth, Kiglatuk vows to the victim's family that she will stop at nothing until the killer has been apprehended. While the murder investigation continues, lawyer Sonia Gut [...]


    7. Full disclosure - I won a copy of the book in a contest This is the first time I've read a novel by this author. The story was good & it did move along; however, because my lifestyle is SO different from the main character's - Edie Kiglatuk I found this to be a difficult read mostly because I had difficulty relating to the lifestyle, the food, even the characters names & language. I like to be absorbed by stories so much that I lose track of myself & the world I live in. While readi [...]


    8. I thoroughly enjoyed this dark murder/thriller set on Ellesmere Island in Canada's frozen north. Once I became accustomed to the Inuit names and terminology and the rather slow-paced start, the plot developed into an intriguing mystery around the disappearance of a young female student of teacher, Edie Kiglatuk, in the remote settlement of locals and nearby military Camp Nanook. Initially, Police Sergeant Derek Palliser believes the girl was killed by two soldiers, but Edie helping in the invest [...]


    9. Available now from MantleThank you to the author and publisher for the review copy.Edie Kiglatuk works as a summer school teacher in the Canadian arctic. When one of her female students is found dead in nearby Lake Turngaluk, Edie enlists the help of Sergeant Derek Palliser to pursue the case, promising the girl’s Inuit family that they will uncover the truth. Meanwhile, lawyer Sonia Gutierrez investigates the toxicity of the lake and suspects that there might be a larger conspiracy involved. [...]


    10. This book like the previous tells us of the beauty and dangers of a place that few of us will ever see. It is one of those quickly vanishing parts of the Earth that the greed of mankind is destroying. Assuming the author has stayed true to the type of life people lead in the area, it is a brief study in Cultural Anthropology in addition to an intriquing mystery.


    11. I liked that this mystery was set in the arctic among an Inuit settlement, and I felt that McGrath generally managed not to explain different cultural norms in too clunky a way. I could wish there were more books set in these communities that were by Inuit or people that had grown up in the region though I wouldn't say a British person couldn't or shouldn't necessarily write this book. My larger problems come with the plot. Based on this book and what I've gleaned of the plots of the previous tw [...]


    12. Today's NewsThis book deals with a subject as current as today's headlines.When a young woman's body is discovered in a radioactive lake in the Arctic the cause of death is first attributed to drowning. But a chilling discovery soon makes it clear that something more sinister is at work.


    13. Brilliant writing. A brilliant story. Believable protagonists. What more do you want from a book? I won't spoil your reading enjoyment by giving away too much - just pick it up, sit down and get on with it.


    14. A Decent readI would have rated this 4 stars had it been more tightly edited. Long sections of the book were quite unnecessary to the progress of the plot. Even so it was a fair read and developed with decent charcaters.


    15. The Bone Seeker is a satisfying conclusion to the series, but I hope that there will be another book.  The events within the story were sad.  I did enjoy visiting and catching up with Edie and Derek.  I enjoyed Kate Reading’s narration.


    16. The Bone Seeker stand-out for me was the secondary story uncovered by the murder. It was well thought out, high stakes, mysterious, and something that governments around the world have routinely been guilty of for the last fifty years.


    17. Good mystery taking place on Ellesmere Island in Canada. I liked the characters and the going back and forth between the Inuit and the Canadian cultures.


    18. Good mystery, set in the very far north in the Inuit culture. Number three of a series. Considering reading the first two. Not quite as good as the kate sugak series, but a good read.




    19. You can see this and loads more reviews on my blog: bookaddictshaun/The first thing that drew me to the book was the cover, and then I read the blurb and was straightaway intrigued to read this book. I received a free proof copy in return for this review so thanks to the publisher for that. As crime fiction is my most read genre, it can get a bit repetitive and so I like to look for books which are a bit different, whether that be in setting or in story, and well this book is probably the most d [...]


    20. Edie Kiglatuk is hoping for a quiet summer on Ellesmere Island, with a teaching post and the occasional hunt. But the land of the midnight sun is disturbed by a horrific murder, and the deeper Edie digs the more elusive the murderer becomes. Can Edie solve the mystery that's been plaguing Ellesmere for over fifty years? The story Ellesmere Island in summer is an odd place. Warm by local standards, the residents divide their time between their homes and their summer camps, hunting places that are [...]


    21. Edie is spending the nightless summer in Kuujuaq as an interim teacher for the local school. It's supposed to be a break from her home and the memories of her ex stepson's all too recent death. When one of her students goes missing and is later discovered gruesomely murdered, Edie once again gets drawn into the investigation. This time it's at the request of her friend Derek Palliser. With the only other officer in Kuujuaq off for training, the force is grossly unequipped to deal with a murder. [...]


    22. 4.5 starsM.J. McGrath combines a wonderful sense of place, vivid interesting characters who seem real, and a great, complex plot with thrilling, tense action packed events at its climax.The setting is the remote, frigid but scenic Ellesmere Island in the far, far north of Canada. We learn something about Inuit customs, beliefs, social problems and history, which includes the sad forced relocation and betrayal of the native people by the federal government. Racial tensions and mistrust between th [...]


    23. 3.5 of 5 starsI received a copy of this book from the publishers and this is my honest opinion of the book.Edie Kiglatuk is spending the Summer teaching on Ellesmere Island and recovering from events that occurred last year. Hoping for a quieter pace it soon becomes apparent that this isn't to be the case when one of her pupils goes missing. Persuading her friend, police chief Derek Palliser to search for the missing girl, they soon come across her body. With it they stumble into a murder invest [...]


    24. This is the third book in the Edie Kiglatuk series. I have not read or listened to any other books in the series and I was able to follow along just fine. The book started out a little slow for me, but by chapter 5 or 6, I was immersed in the story.This book is based in the arctic world of Ellesmere Island where the majority of the population is the Inuit people and they don't like outsiders. When a young girl from the community ends up dead, what looks like an open and shut case ends up reveali [...]


    25. Full Disclosure-I won a free unpublished copy of this book from .*Minor spoilers*Though this is the first time I've read M.J. McGrath's work, I was excited to read this novel because I looked forward to delving into the arctic landscape. Having spent a couple years in Alaska, I was familiar with the terrain, style of living, and native customs that this book promised to explore. McGrath beautifully re-imagines the atmosphere and locale of the area. In that, I was quite pleased. However, I had a [...]


    26. This book is a complete cultural immersion into the attitudes, customs, and etiquette of those living in an Inuit settlement in the Canadian Arctic. Edie is half Inuit and half QALUNAAT, or white; and as such, somewhat of an outsider in the village she has come to live in as a summer school teacher. We see the strange, beautiful landscape and the villagers through her eyes and thoughts. We also learn of a history of neglect of the Inuits by the Canadian government and the native people’s suspi [...]

    28. 7/16/14 - Won this on .8/12/14 - Received this a week plus ago.11/19/14 - Took me a while to read this book that I won here on because it's in a series and I have this OCD thing about reading books in a series out of order and it took me a bit to track down the first 2 books, so my library only had the 1st book and, again, that OCD thing, so I had to find the 2nd one so I could read them in order. LOL However, that said, I'm really glad that I won this book and that I was able to read the 3 (so [...]
