Jane is back belting out standards, this time at a seafood convention in Seattle, when frightened screams interrupt her rendition of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." A very dead blonde is found in the bathtub of the hotel's hospitality suite. With the girl's grieving parents asking Jane to investigate their estranged daughter's life and death - and her gig about to go to a synthesizer - Jane starts making inquiries.

Posing as a freelancer for an industry magazine, she takes a crash course in fish and nets some suspects. The list includes the victim's squirrelly unemployed boyfriend; a Norwegian bureaucrat on a binge who was seen romancing the victim; a lovable Shetland Islands salmon farmer; a mysterious Swiss who enters and leaves locked hotel rooms without a key; and Don and Bob, a pair of tough and eccentric Alaskan fishermen brothers. They'll have her globetrotting from downtown Seattle to Scotland's Shetland Islands to icy Arctic fjords...and toward a confrontation with either a killer, a bizarre secret that's rocking the salmon industry, or a whole shipload of red herrings. In spite of all the ice and snow, the more Jane discovers, the hotter things get. Was the bathtub murder a crime of passion? Can a love of seafood lead to murder? Not until Jane faces violence and death herself can she discover the startling truth.

Kathrine Kristine Beck Marris, known mainly by her pen name of K. K. Beck, is an American novelist who was married to crime writer Michael Dibdin, who died in 2007
