Hard-working and dogged Dan Ji, arrives in the long winding valley with her own ghosts. As a damo, a tea servant of the police force, she is overlooked and undervalued. Yet this case has gripped her heart, and she craves to prove her worth beyond simply cooking and cleaning for her superiors – she is determined to solve the mystery.
With only the officer in charge on her side – a hard young man with a bloody past and secrets of his own – Dan Ji must convince the local Magistrate and his provincial policemen to trust her judgement. Yet with mistrust brewing, the investigation slowly grinds to a halt. Until a frozen body is unearthed from the deep snows of the mountain range.
It is not within Dan Ji’s nature to leave a mystery unsolved, yet soon she discovers the fine threads of this investigation run much deeper than anyone has anticipated.A dark historical mystery set in old Korea.

'Loved it. You get a Korean history lesson wrapped in a kidnapping and murder. To make the plot even more interesting, the main character is a female servant girl. Great read, if you like history, mystery, and strong smart female characters get this book today!' - NM
'I'm sad to part with it because it is so incredible! I love this book and can't recommend it enough!' - Emily
'Loved it. The writing seemed a paradox, in a way. Simple, stark, and cold, like the story's setting, but full of emotion and meaning between the lines. It was beautifully descriptive. I couldn't put it down.' - Laura
