Spud Sweetgrass and his friends Connie Pan and Dink the Thinker are back. And this time Spud is in some frigid trouble. One morning Spud sees a terrible crime. And he can't get it out of his mind. Detective Kennedy wants him to tell her what he saw, but he's afraid of the man with the most beautiful hair in the world -- afraid for himself, and afraid for Connie Pan.

How will Spud find his way our of the mess he's in? Another masterful book by award-winning author Brian Doyle, Spud in Winter combines rollicking humour, chilling mystery, and delight in human foibles.
