When a skier goes missing at Sun Valley’s Galena Summit, Sheriff Walt Fleming quickly assembles his crack Search and Rescue team and heads out into the snowy night. Despite the treacherous conditions, Walt and his group, including deputy Tommy Brandon and Walt’s best friend, Mark Aker, set off on skis, accompanied by highly trained search dogs. Within minutes, something goes horribly wrong: one of their team is dead. By morning, Mark Aker has disappeared. Torn between professional responsibility and the desperate urge to find his friend, Walt is further challenged by an unexplained illness at a local water-bottling plant that sends workers to the hospital and sets off biohazard warnings. Following threads of questionable evidence through the glitter of Sun Valley leads Walt to an unlikely—and darker—source, and reveals a crime played out on a much larger scale than he originally envisioned. Waist-deep in snow and knee-deep in lies, the life of his friend in the balance, Walt begins to suspect that the whole operation is controlled by people of great wealth and power, which leaves him where he started: out in the cold. From adrenaline-charged start to explosive finish, Killer View is heart-stopping suspense at its very best. “A terrific villain, an appealing protagonist, and breakneck pacing. Ridley Pearson writes thrillers, the kind that try to yank you to the edge of your seat and keep you there.” —Boston Sunday Globe “Ridley Pearson writes thrillers, the kind that try to yank you to the edge of your seat and keep you there.” —Boston Sunday Globe Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " This is set in Sun Valley Idaho and concerns toxic waste and water contamination, political coverups, violence against women, parenting struggles, rape survivors, etc., etc. In the South, I found it hard to relate to the snowmobiles and snowshoe treks but liked the action in the book. The plight of a single dad working in a consuming job was touching, too. The point of view does shift several times, so sort of gives away a bit of the plot. "

    " A so-so who-done-it that was satisfying. "

    " This is the first time I have read anything by Ridley Pearson. I picked up this novel at an airport about a year ago intending to start reading it right away. Needless to say, I shelved it for quite a while not knowing whether I would enjoy the story or not. I picked it up again about a week ago as I was packing for a trip. This time I did read it on the plane and during my visit and was pleasantly surprised. The story begins with Sheriff Walt Fleming and his team searching for a missing skier in the backcountry surrounding Sun Valley, Idaho after receiving an annonymous tip. During the search, one of his team members takes what first appears to be a fatal fall. The skier is never found and the brother (Mark Aker) of the fallen team member disappears and it looks to be not of his own choosing. Next comes the brutal assault of a young woman. Add to this the discovery of contaminated water and the killing of hundreds of contaminated sheep. The sheriff starts to see a connection between all of these events and starts to investigate. He is thwarted along the way by politicians and government agencies and is warned to stay clear. However, he can't ignore the disappearance of his friend, Mark, and continues to unravel the clues in order to find out what has happened to him and to try to rescue him. Set amid the rugged terrain of central Idaho, with its unique mix of residents from the extremely wealthy to the rednecks to those living on the fringe of society in compounds, the story offers a variety of plots and sub-plots along the path to its conclusion. Well written with plenty of twists and turns. The reader is able to visualize what that part of the country is like and the obstacles law enforcement faces with such a unique dichotemy of populace. I understand this is part of a series involving the main character and now that I have read this one, I will be sure to pick up the rest of Mr. Pearson's books in this series in the near future. "

    " Like the setting....first Ridley Pearson. Too many subplots and not enough character development. Difficult to believe the odds of the bad guys to the good guys and the good guy wins! "
