    Ray Attla is on vacation with his family at the Girdwood resort outside Anchorage; he finds a corpse at the foot of a ski lift tower - it looks like the victim fell. But autopsy reveals poison. Soon the FBI, US State department, and a Japanese corporation are involved, and someone tries to kill Ray. After lots of interesting characters and plot twists, killer turns out to be a Japanese businessman who killed the victim because he had stolen corporate secrets. "Midnight sun" refers to the summer solstice.
