When Daniel Stone was a child, he was the only white boy in a native Eskimo village where his mother taught, and he was teased mercilessly because he was different. He fought back, the baddest of the bad kids: stealing, drinking, robbing and cheating his way out of the Alaskan bush - where he honed his artistic talent, fell in love with a girl and got her pregnant. To become part of a family, he reinvented himself - jettisoning all that anger to become a docile, devoted husband and father.

Fifteen years later, when we meet Daniel again, he is a comic book artist. His wife teaches Dante's Inferno at a local college; his daughter, Trixie, is the light of his life - and a girl who only knows her father as the even-tempered, mild-mannered man he has been her whole life. Until, that is, she is date raped... and Daniel finds himself struggling, again, with a powerlessness and a rage that may not just swallow him whole, but destroy his family and his future.

This is an emotional & thought provoking story centering on the rape...or alleged rape...of fourteen year-old Trixie & it's difficult to review it without giving away the twists in the story to future I'll leave it at that!

I did enjoy the Alaskan part of the book (hubby used to follow The Iditarod) & although the comic excerpts were an amusing idea I found them difficult to follow & I've given up on trying to unlock their secret....if any future readers crack it, please let me know the answer! :o)
