Kaden Edwards is living life on the precipice of achieving all his wildest dreams until fate intervenes. The fallout leaves his friends and family to pick up the pieces in the kind of winter wonderland people flock to from across the globe.

Do all ski bums go to heaven? What happens to our loved ones after we’re gone? Is life in a mountain town all it’s cracked up to be? These are the questions Joe Rowles explores in his latest novel Snow Ghost, where death is hardly the end and life continues to make S-turns long after the protagonist meets his demise.
