Book Description:

She’d been running for so long, it felt like her legs were on fire. Her heart was pounding so hard, she was sure it would give out. Around her, the snow was falling, casting an eerie silence over the town. A crack behind her, a foot snapping a branch, it warned her that he was still coming. She whipped around and saw the knife gleaming in his hand…

As the snow begins to melt across Plattsburgh, New York, the body of a young woman is found buried in a snowbank. When Detective Harlow Durant arrives at the scene she discovers that the victim has lain there for months: her arresting beauty, brightly-coloured nails and a distinctive gold bracelet perfectly preserved in the ice.

Searching missing person reports, Harlow soon identifies the victim as college student Alyssa Trent. Her grieving family describe her as someone who had no enemies and was a dedicated student. But Alyssa’s tutor has a different view: they claim Alyssa had another life that she kept hidden. But who would want her dead?

Harlow knows all about secret lives. She has spent years running from her past and from her father, a convicted serial killer. As the only female detective at the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, Harlow has vowed to bring killers to justice. Now she needs to find justice for Alyssa.

When another female student is found in the thawing snow, Harlow knows that she is hunting a twisted killer. The victims knew each other but what dark secret connects them? With the small-town reeling in shock and more snow coming, Harlow knows she needs to stop a killer dead in their tracks before another innocent life is lost.

From the bestselling author of Next Girl To Die comes an addictive crime thriller perfect for fans of Melinda Leigh, Kendra Elliot and Robert Dugoni’s Tracy Crosswhite series.


My Review:

What a great start to a new series! Harlow is shaped by her past and her serial killer father. She has never trusts others, especially men, and this causes her to make her life a little harder than it needs to. She is paired with a detective that is new to homicide. While they start out as adversaries, it was nice to watch the bond develop between the two of them.

In addition to our pair working to solve a murder, there are chapters from Harlow’s childhood and from the killer. I enjoyed the additional information and break from the case. Dark in the title is appropriate as the story is gritty and the interactions are quite contentious. I really wish there would have been a little less men are misogynist jerks and women needing protecting, but that is the only thing I’d change.

While I was on the fence about how much I liked Harlow, I found her intriguing and really connected with her motives for being a cop. Although the story is really told through Harlow’s eyes, I liked Lucas the most and I appreciated that the male – female partnership didn’t hint at romance.

I think anyone that likes a gritty crime procedure, will like this one and with that ending, you’ll be all in for the series.
