Ice Cold: A Rizzoli and Isles Novel

by

Ice Cold: A Rizzoli and Isles Novel Cover

 

Staff Pick

I read Ice Cold in one night. I literally could not put this novel down. Long a fan of Tess Gerritsen, I love her characters: Maura Isles, the cool, professional medical examiner, and Jane Rizzoli, the edgy Boston detective.

In Ice Cold, Gerritsen takes both women out of their comfort zones, setting the story in the middle of a rural Wyoming winter. With Isles missing, Rizzoli searches frantically for clues to her friend's fate. In the meantime, Isles desperately fights to stay alive as she is chased by a group that seems to want her dead. When she is offered help by a young "mountain man," she must decide who to trust in a frightening wilderness where the challenges are far different than what she faces on the streets of Boston.

Ice Cold is possibly the best thriller I've read this year. If you haven't read any previous titles in the Isles and Rizzoli series, Ice Cold does stand on its own and is an excellent introduction to these two classy female heroes.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen’s relentless, inventive novels take readers on pulse-racing thrill rides that are as satisfying as they are heart-stopping. Now, in this edge-of-your-seat suspense novel, a mysteriously isolated town stands abandoned as a silent watcher waits.

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 twelve 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.

 

Published in the UK as THE KILLING PLACE.
