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?

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
  • #1 USA Today Bestseller

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Green | 12/23/2013

    " I liked the fact that this one of Sandra Brown's tales was set in a North Carolina mountain town, which immediately sets itself apart from some of her other novels. She sets the scene perfectly with her brilliant descriptive writing style and then she lets the story unfold on the page at your fingertips. Although not my favorite of her tales, it was a very good read and reflected many true stories that have been rearing their ugly heads all over America throughout history. Yet another of Brown's well written novels that must only be accompanied by a cup of hot tea and enough time to immerse yourself in the story. "
