ABOUT THE BOOK
Gazing out the cabin window at the raging blizzard, fear suddenly floods through her as she feels a stranger’s hand clamp across her mouth. No one can hear her stifled screams as she is dragged from the couch by the fire out into the snow.
When seventeen-year-old Savannah Devenish vanishes from her family’s remote vacation cabin in Minnesota, FBI Agent Tori Hunter races along treacherous icy roads to be first on the scene. Savannah’s parents are frantic with worry for their beautiful, carefree girl. Haunted by memories of her own missing sister, Tori vows to do whatever it takes to reunite this family.
When the police uncover that Savannah’s father Jacob was having an affair, they suspect his involvement, but Tori is convinced his despair is genuine. Her close relationship with the chief detective means the team won’t listen, so Tori strikes off alone, persuading Savannah’s distraught best friends to share their secrets. It seems this ‘good girl’ was sneaking out to parties to meet up with a mysterious man…
Then another teenager is snatched from the street, snowy footprints and a discarded hot chocolate cup the last trace of her. The girls are the same age, strikingly pale and blonde. Is a twisted collector stealing them away? And what chance is there that they are being kept alive?
With a deadly snowstorm closing in, Tori battles the elements—and her own team—as she follows the trail to an abandoned cabin by a frozen lake. In the basement are bedrooms filled with clothes for teenage girls. Tori was too late to save her own missing sister twenty years ago, but can she find these girls before they disappear forever?
An utterly addictive and twisty crime thriller that will have your eyes glued to the pages and your heart in your mouth. Fans of Kendra Elliot, Robert Dugoni and Tess Gerritsen won’t be able to put this down.
I do have to admit to not reading the first book in this series, but there is enough information given that I didn’t feel left out in the cold with this one. I do like a good book cover, and the title piqued my interest even more. I wasn’t disappointed.
After the conclusion in the first book, Tori Hunter has taken time out from being an FBI agent and is now teaching, but when she and her boyfriend Detective Will Braddock have been out for the evening, he receives a call to attend a crime. A seventeen-year-old girl had been abducted from her home, so Braddock deputises Hunter to help out.
I straight away took to this pairing of minds of Hunter and Braddock. I liked that there was a balance of both the working relationship and the off duty time between them. The story is fast-paced and not a random event when a second young woman is taken. I enjoyed that this didn’t go the way I thought it would. A fabulous storyline and brilliant series to watch out for in the future.
I wish to thank Net Galley and the publisher for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
