Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
“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 …
What a great story this is – a real, edge of your seat, suspense filled, crime thriller that I didn’t want to put down until I’d read it all.
Eighteen year olds Hannah Walker and her best friend, Jodie, had gone to work at a ski resort in Lone Creek before they disappeared, leaving their belongings behind them. Hannah’s Mum is frustrated by the lack of progress being made by the police and is certain they aren’t taking her daughter’s disappearance seriously. She hires a PI, former police officer Dean Matheson, to see if he can help find the missing girls.
Eva Valdez is returning to work a week after her husband had been murdered in the line of duty. She’s shocked at the callous attitudes of most of her colleagues, only one acknowledging her loss and absence. She’s also shocked to discover the lack of progress in the search for the missing teenagers and suggests she go out to Lone Creek to see if she can uncover any further evidence. A supportive sergeant agrees, though the investigating officer is anything but pleased!
Though they previously didn’t know each other, these two meet at the ski resort and, eventually, agree to help each other. They discover that all is not well in this community, with so many twists and turns to keep you guessing this really is an enthralling and surprising crime thriller that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. As I stated earlier, you don’t need to have read the first book in this series to enjoy this one but I am now looking forward to reading that book soon, too! If you enjoy intriguing crime thrillers, I can’t recommend this highly enough.It worked brilliantly and I didn’t realise it was the second book in a series until I came to write this review. Anyway, that was great news to me – my first move then was to purchase myself a copy of the first book in this series, Who Cares if They Die: A compelling psychological thriller you won’t want to put down. That should tell you how impressed I was by this book!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after finding it an amazing read.
