Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town -- the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Not so, lately. Four women have disappeared from Cleary over the past two years. And there's always a blue ribbon left near the spot where each of the women was last seen. There are no bodies, no other clues, and no suspicion as to who their abductor might be. And now, another woman has disappeared without a trace.

It is to this backdrop that Lilly Martin returns to close the sale of her mountain cabin, marking the end of her turbulent eight-year marriage to Dutch Burton, Cleary's chief of police. Dutch's reluctance to let her go isn't Lilly's only obstacle. As she's trying to outrun a snowstorm, her car skids on the icy road and strikes a man. She recognizes the injured man as Ben Tierney, whom she'd met the previous summer. They're forced to wait out the storm in the cabin, but as the hours of their confinement mount, Lilly begins to wonder if the greatest danger to her safety isn't the blizzard outside, but the mysterious man right beside her. Is Ben Tierney the feared abductor? Or is he who he claims to be...her rescuer from harm and from the tragedy that haunts her? Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Lust, jealousy, and murder suffuse Brown’s crisp thriller…The snowy suspense will cool off Brown’s fans during the dog days of summer.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Both the weather and the confined setting give this creepy thriller a wonderfully claustrophobic edge. This book has twists aplenty and characters with more than a little excess baggage. Leave it to Brown to dish up pure terror and chills.” 

    RT Book Reviews (Top Pick!)

  • “Brown offers up her usual blend of steamy romance and suspense, as well as an entertaining subplot featuring the town’s outwardly prudish high school English teacher. Recommended.” 

    Library Journal

  • “A neat mix of romance, suspense, and plot surprises.” 

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A #1 USA Today Bestseller

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taikeya | 6/3/2012

    " This is a book where I can say...less would have been more. The story overall was great, but I felt it was way too long and some points seemed to drag on. I think had the story been somewhat condensed, it may have been more action-packed and engaging! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marti | 11/23/2011

    " Somehow this seemed more of a romance than a thriller. It must have been set in Western NC--our daughter and son in law only had one snow of one inch. I didn't find any of the characters to be especially sympathetic--they all had certain axes to grind, and didn't mesh well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya | 8/3/2011
