"This book has everything I like! Hot hero, strong heroine, kidnapping, a second chance, set in Alaska, and enough suspense to keep me turning the pages as fast as I can!" –New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker.
Read the next Romantic Thriller by New York Times bestselling author Toni Anderson.
When Darby O'Roarke wakes up in a strange house with a dead man - with no memory of what happened - she knows who she has to call: FBI Supervisory Special Agent Eban Winters...the man she fell for, and who rejected her, last summer.
A negotiator isn't supposed to get involved with kidnap victims, and Eban has been trying to avoid the temptation that is Darby O'Roarke ever since they met. One frantic phone call has him racing to Alaska to uncover the truth, but he faces stubborn opposition from the local police, and a growing media frenzy.
Getting Darby released from jail and keeping her safe is his first priority. When another woman is brutally slain, evidence emerges that suggests Darby is being framed, and that the culprit is a vicious serial killer who has eluded the FBI for more than a decade...and, now, the killer has Darby in their sights.
Toni Anderson keeps on producing intricate, exciting and fast-paced stories. Love the characters in the Cold series and love how their stories are entwined and grow. Thanks for another fabulous story, Toni!
Another fantastic suspense from Toni Anderson
Once again Toni Anderson has crafted an intricate tale of suspense that is set in the frigid Alaskan state and features a couple we met in a previous book and have been rooting for since, Darcy and Evan.
Toni’s books are always meticulously researched and have an intricate plot to go with the romantic chemistry between our beleaguered couple. She deals sensitively with a subject that could be challenging and gives insight into healing following trauma.
I don’t think Toni is capable of writing anything that I wouldn’t rate five star. Can’t wait for the next one.
I finished Cold As Ice and said out loud Wow! What a fantastic book!!
The reader first met Darby, a PhD student on a remote volcanic island in the Banda Seas studying volcanos, in Colder Than Sin. Darby had been abducted and was found and rescued by Quentin and Haley who were also in danger and running for their lives. In the end, Darby meets Eban a hostage negotiator. Eban and Darcy’s story needed to be told.
Darby is now Alaska completing her PhD in volcanology and recovering from her kidnapping trauma. Suddenly she is considered the only suspect in a friends murder.
Eban travels to Alaska to assist in finding the killer. Convincing the local detective to do a complete thorough investigation is a real issue until there is a second murder. Is Darby in danger? Why was she framed?
A knife yielding murderer is on the loose and there are multiple suspects. The momentum of the investigation is non stop.
While searching for the murderer, old friends like BAU’s Lincoln Frazer, Hostage negotiator Quinton Savage and Haley Cramer, CEO of a security firm are encountered offering help and information.
Cold As Ice is a stand alone book, but it is nice “to see” familiar faces during the story.
I love reading about old friends from previous books.
Frequently at the end of a book, I wonder what a character’s life is like afterwards. The Toni Anderson’s Cold Justice books answer those questions.
