Hannah Griffin was a girl when tragedy struck. She still remembers the flames reflected against the newly fallen snow and the bodies the police dug up—one of them her mother's. The killer was never found . . .

Twenty years later Hannah is a talented CSI investigating a case of child abuse when the past comes hurtling back. A killer with unfinished business is on the hunt. And an anonymous message turns Hannah's blood cold:

    " Really struggled to get through it. "

    " Good book although I would have preferred a better ending. Seattle author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leslie | 1/24/2014

    " Not nearly as good as "A Cold Dark Place". This seems to drag on forever. "

    " I found this book interesting and enjoyed reading it though the narration was not always as smooth as I'd have liked. The characters were interesting and well drawn and, in general, their actions made sense. Though I am not sure the villain made total sense. The story centers around Hannah Griffin, a young woman currently working as a CSI in a town that is not Santa Barbara (though I kept wanting to think that it was). The story follows her through a case she is investigating that involves child abuse. It also follows her as she deals, both as an adult and as a child, with a very difficult childhood and a mother who was a serial killer. Hannah has always believed that her mother died when the crimes were discovered due to their house burning down. However, there begins to be some evidence that the mother did not die. The story goes back and forth but was easy to follow. I would recommend this book to readers of crime fiction. "

    " Not a bad book. It was a little slow at one point, but I liked the twists and turns the story took along the way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 1/4/2014

    " I finished this one last night. It was okay. I found the ending incomplete and left a lot questions unanswered. I went to bed without starting a new book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 1/2/2014

    " Another great read love this authors work can't wait to start the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 12/21/2013

    " Listened to the audio version which was read by Kevin Foley. He did a great job. Enjoyed the book, but felt it was a little drawn out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Artdalinkwent | 12/1/2013

    " I have now read all of his books, I am an impressed reader. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gary | 11/8/2013

    " Good book but I didn't care for the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 8/25/2013

    " I enjoyed this book very much. It caught my attention from the beginning and didn't let go till I'd closed the final page. It was a great thriller of a book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonna | 8/18/2013

    " I loved Gregg Olsen's non-fiction books and this fictional mystery is very well-written and is a real page-turner. I thoroughly enjoyed it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 6/4/2013

    " I took this book along camping. That was a bad idea. This book definitely kept you up at night thinking you heard something and perhaps it was a serial killer... I don't know if I would read it again, but it was a good book club pick! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracey | 12/10/2012

    " Great suspense, with some twists I didn't see coming! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Loraine | 4/24/2012

    " This is an absolutely great first novel of fiction by true crime writer Gregg Olsen. It is a well written and cleverly told story that grabs you from the first page and doesn't let go till the end. I will definitely be looking forward to this author's next thriller. I loved it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 2/15/2012

    " Takes about half the book to get really interested but it picks up in plot after that. Also takes place in Pacific Northwest so that was interesting (since I live there). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/15/2012

    " a real page turner. very fast read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 12/25/2011

    " did not like the ending.. was not great "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vickie | 11/8/2011

    " Very good - had me guessing until the end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 5/11/2011

    " I thought it was good up until the end...the end felt rushed and confusing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 5/10/2011

    " Eh it was okay. Sort of predictable. Could've had different twists. Not the best writing style. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deb | 4/4/2011

    " Quite disappointed in this. Characters are flat, the story is disjointed, syntax is odd, and the whole thing was just plain tedious. I slogged through it hoping for some sort of payoff which never did come. "

    " I thought it was good up until the end...the end felt rushed and confusing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 2/3/2011

    " It makes sense right now...we are buried in snow up here in NH. I forgot how a crime/thriller can suck you in. I have not read something like this in years and I am gobbling it up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 1/12/2011

    " If I could use one word to describe this novel, it would be outstanding! This is one of the best suspense/thriller novels I’ve ever read. I found myself getting so involved with the characters. The book was fast-paced and far from predictable. I highly recommend this novel.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 12/29/2010

    " Awsome book! A little bit gruesome and a little bit mysterious. Just my kind of book! From page 1 to the end, the author did a fantastic job making this a definite page-turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya | 9/27/2010

    " Very good book, this was the first time I read a book by Gregg Olsen and I have to say I was impressed and will probably explore more of his books! "

    " This author has written a bunch of 'true-crime' non-fiction books. He went fiction with this, it was much better than his other books. "
