Publisher Description

Boston private investigator Alex Rourke has had to overcome personal tragedy and the emotional trauma it's caused to him before. But that's nothing to what he faces when the disappearance of a young man from a tough part of town takes him to the back country of northern Vermont. Adam Webb wasn't the first person to vanish in this stretch of the Green Mountains, and he won't be the last. Ghost towns, drug trafficking, blood and violence - all secrets buried beneath the stark, clean white of the January snows.

With everything Alex holds dear either taken from him or quickly slipping through his grasp, keeping his sanity - and his life - will mean getting to the root of the evil dwelling in the frozen state. If he still wants either of those things, that is...

This novel is the first book in the newly-reworked Alex Rourke series of stories. The original was published by Penguin in 2003, but this version from 2012 has been very heavily re-edited and improved.

Praise for John Rickards:

"Rickards is a master of tension and pacing. In Rourke he has created a brilliant anti-hero lead on a par with John Connolly's Charlie Parker." - Crimespree Magazine

"Rickards is one author who doesn't pull punches." - Spinetingler

"Rickards is definitely one to watch." - Peter Robinson (Watching The Dark, Aftermath)
