Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312989865, Paperback)

Reassigned with his partner, Nettie Frisch, to Minneapolis's Cold Case Unit, Mars Bahr misses the adrenaline rush of the homicide squad-until a look into a string of old convenience store murders turns up the file of Andrea Bergstad, a beautiful teen working alone at night in a desolate rural store when she disappeared.

Was Andrea abducted and killed? The evidence is scanty: a fuzzy surveillance video, her last call to a girlfriend, and an anonymous phone-in to the police that the store was empty. But it's enough for Mars to convince a crime-finders TV show to appeal to the public for new leads. And among the screwball responses is one sizzling hot tip.

With shocking information kept secret for nearly twenty years, Mars suddenly faces a real and terrifying threat to himself and those he loves-unless he drops the case. Or unless he can catch a killer before a .308 hard-point bullet shatters his world...

"Tired of the politics, publicity, and endless nights that go with major homicides, Detective Marshall "Mars" Bahr and his partner, Nettie Frisch, have moved to the Cold Case Unit, which covers the Minneapolis Police Department's oldest unsolved cases. One of their first assignments is tackling the murders of rural convenience store employees, which leads them to a sixteen-year-old missing-persons case." "In 1986, seventeen-year-old Andrea Bergstad was working alone at night at a rural Minnesota gas station when she vanished without a trace. As recorded on the store's fuzzy security videotape, one minute she's there talking on the phone to her best friend, and the next minute she's gone. Now, sixteen years later, Mars goes back to Redstone, Minnesota, to try to put together the pieces of this baffling case.""In Redstone, Mars meets retired sheriff Sig Sampson, off the job for several years but still haunted by the Bergstad case as though it were yesterday. Sig Sampson is the only person who can help Mars do what needs to be done in order to solve the case, as his memory of the event is the only thing that can take this cold case and make it hot." "Mars and Sig dive into the investigation, and Mars soon begins to think that their hard work will get them somewhere. But his concern over the details distracts him from the greater issues at hand, and before he knows it, the lives of the two most important people in Mars's life are at risk."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
