Publisher's Weekly Review

Prolific bestseller Jackson (Deep Freeze) introduces an intriguing pair of female detectives in this intense series opener. Deep in the winter wilderness of Montana, a serial killer sets up car accidents for women driving down secluded roads, rescues and seduces them and then ties them to trees and leaves them to die. As the bodies pile up, Det. Selena Alvarez and Det. Regan Pescoli search desperately for clues. Recent divorcée Jillian Rivers, in Montana searching for her vanished first husband, looks likely to become the next corpse when her tires are shot out and mountain man Zane MacGregor rescues her. When MacGregor vanishes from the cabin where Rivers is recovering from her injuries, she starts to wonder what his real motives are. Alvarez, Pescoli and Rivers separately edge closer to identifying the killer, but Jackson keeps them and the reader in suspense all the way to the cliffhanger ending. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
