Summary
Crime never sleeps and neither does the veteran LAPD homicide detective invited to Nightmute, Alaska to head a murder investigation there. He finds the investigation disrupted by an ever-shining midnight sun that wreaks sleep-depriving havoc on his body clock. As his consciousness becomes more unstable, he is nagged by a sense of personal guilt over a second crime that might just be real
