June Lyons, the former
FBI agent turned small-town cop introduced in the acclaimed Ice Shear
must solve two connected cases whose roots stretch back decades in time—and
dangerously touch the lives of those closest to her.
As a police officer in
the Rust Belt town of Hopewell Falls, New York, June Lyons keeps an eye on the
abandoned factories that line the Mohawk River. Spotting a slick of gasoline
running across the parking lot of an old apparel factory, she quickly heads
inside the building, where she discovers an unconscious woman too close to the
flame. The fire destroys the building down to its subbasements, and the badly
burned woman June rescued is in a coma. No one knows who she is or how she got
Thirty years ago, June’s
father made a name for himself when he arrested the factory’s owner, Bernie
Lawler, for killing his wife and child, though their bodies were never found.

complex, she teams with FBI Special Agent Hale Bascom to find answers—before
everyone she loves, and the town itself, spin dangerously out of control. Download and start listening now!
