“Soapy” Smith ran all the crimes in the gold rush town. That was until he was killed on the town’s dock by Frank Reid. But is Frank Reid the Alaskan hero he’s remembered as? A gold field reporter trapped in a boarding house during a raging winter storm reexamines the facts of the killing with a man who was there and a beautiful woman, the Alaskan Nightengale. When the savage North wind gusts and shrieks up to seventy miles per hour from weeks to months, no one can move out doors. It’s a time for stories and retelling of Skagway’s hero and it’s criminal mastermind.
