“You want to know what I’ve learnt after living in Lone Creek all my life? I know the snow bleeds here …”Former police officer Dean Matheson has been playing it safe since the case that cost him almost everything. But working as a PI doesn’t quite cut it, that is until a British woman walks into his office with a job that Dean can’t resist. The woman’s daughter, Hannah Walker, and her friend Jodie have gone missing whilst working at a ski resort in Colorado. It’s clear there’s something sinister about the girls’ disappearance, but then why are the local police department being so unhelpful?So begins Dean’s journey to Lone Creek on the trail of the missing girls – and he’ll soon find out that in Lone Creek, everyone has something to hide …
Dean travels up to Lone Creek with Rocky to investigate the missing girls, where he meets Eva who is a Detective working for Maddison Police Department who has taken over the case.
The plot is distinctive, grabbing and skillfully absorbing and intriguing.
Isn’t she a world wind? I love a strong, independent female character.
Eva had just come back from a week off after her husbands funeral, who died in the line of duty. She isn’t getting along properly with her other colleagues, and she is angry and still greiving. She spots that the missing case hasn’t been properly investigated by lazy a colleague so she decides to investigate and a chance to get away from Madison PD for a week or two.
Dean and Eva turn out to be an awesome team together.
Other characters – all I will say is some other characters in this book are fucking terrifying. I have never in my life been scared of a character in a book, I can always compartmentalise. But fuck me twice and call me Mary, I am utterly freaked the fuck out.
This is some brilliant and remarkable writing. I thoroughly enjoyed the writing and book. This is dark, daring, terrifying, immensely tense and speeds your heart rate up to a whole distinctive level.
This starts of a little slow , but dam it speeds up and sends you on a dark and twisty ride.
A distinctive, grabbing and skillfully absorbing and intriguing book.
