In a remote, frozen corner of New Hampshire, a Navy SEAL team and the elite security experts of Troubleshooters Incorporated are going head-to-head as fierce but friendly rivals in a raid-and-rescue training exercise. Despite the frigid winter temperatures, tension smolders between SEAL Petty Officer Mark Jenkins and former cop turned Troubleshooter Lindsey Fontaine after an impulsive night of passion goes awry. And then suddenly Tracy Shapiro, the Troubleshooters' new receptionist, vanishes while playing the role of hostage during a mock rescue operation.
Teaming up with the FBI to launch a manhunt in the treacherous wilderness, Jenk and Lindsey must put aside their feelings as a record snowstorm approaches, dramatically reducing any hope of finding Tracy alive. The trail is colder than the biting New England climate until a lucky break leads to a horrifying discovery - a brutally murdered young woman wearing the jacket Tracy wore when she disappeared. Suddenly there is a chilling certainty that Tracy has fallen prey to a serial killer - one who knows the backwoods terrain and who doesn't play by the rules of engagement.
In a race against time, a raging blizzard, and a cunning opponent, Jenk and Lindsey are put to the ultimate test. Risking everything, they must finally come together in a desperate attempt to save Tracy - and each other.
The men of SEAL Team Sixteen take on a truly challenging opponent: Troubleshooters, Inc., the civilian counterterrorist team of former SEAL commanding officer Tom Paoletti's civilian counterterrorist team. The two groups face off as part of a winter training exercise in the mountains of New Hampshire, where, despite the cold weather and meager accommodations, they find the assignment a pleasurable one - particularly for Petty Officer Mark Jenkins, who has helped get his sister's best friend (and his seventh-grade crush) Tracy Shapiro a job as the Troubleshooters' new receptionist.
But it's Troubleshooters operative and former LAPD detective Lindsey Fontaine who understands all his jokes. Jenk and Lindsey becomes friends - and then more - as the two teams train together.
The real world intervenes, however, when Tracy goes missing in the freezing woods. As hours stretch into days, the search widens - but she's vanished without a trace. Soon the bodies of brutally tortured women are discovered beneath the ice of a flooded quarry, and it becomes clear that a serial killer has made this area his home.
Lindsey soon finds herself isolated in the killer's snowbound lair, while Jenk desperately races against time, fighting the elements to reach her. Can they bring a violent perpetrator to justice and rescue their missing friend?
