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.
