In Wyoming for a medical conference, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip. But when their SUV stalls on a snow-choked mountain road, they’re stranded - with no help in sight.
As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in the remote village of Kingdom Come, where 12 eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Something terrible has happened in Kingdom Come: Meals sit untouched on tables, cars are still parked in garages. The town’s previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the cold darkness — someone who is watching Maura and her friends.
Days later, Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli receives the grim news that Maura’s charred body has been found in a mountain ravine. Shocked and grieving, Jane is determined to learn what happened to her friend. The investigation plunges Jane into the twisted history of Kingdom Come, where a gruesome discovery lies buried beneath the snow. As horrifying revelations come to light, Jane closes in on an enemy both powerful and merciless — and the chilling truth about Maura’s fate.
I love Tess Gerritsen's books, but this one isn't one of her best. If I had read it as opposed to listen, I'm sure I would have enjoyed it more though. The narrators voice was annoying and nothing like I would have expected her books to be read. She spoke in a very light, girly tone. I would have appreciated a stronger more confident voice considering the characters.
Don't waste time on this one get the unabridged version.
Liked it when I got to the last hour and a half of the book the audio did not play so I deleted the book can I just down load again or do I have to buy it again?
