Wow, what a surprise....Gerritsen has crafted what I feel is her best effort to date with this book. Part whodunnit, part horror, with lots of characters interacting that takes the reader through an entire spectrum of emotions (fear, hate, love, friendship, technical, survival, etc.). I've always enjoyed Gerritsen's books, but this one belongs among the best I've read this year. ( )

A little over the top for me on this one, but still well-written.

ETA: The more I think about it, the less I like this book. It feels so out of place in the R&I series. Maura is basically just thrown into this story that happens to her. The side characters are very two-dimensional, throw-away caricatures. They serve no purpose other than to get Maura into the situation and then make things worse. The mystery is underplayed and insubstantial. Even the twists at the end couldn't save the book (and one of them I had figured out in advance). The only likable/useful character is Rat, and the appearance of Jane and Gabriel cannot save the story. Additionally, parts were left hanging and/or unresolved. I almost feel like this book was sort of a "ripped from the headlines" novel that met a deadline for the next R&I book.

Disappointing. I'm not sure this one deserves even the three stars I gave it which really bothers me because I have pretty much enjoyed every other Gerritsen novel I have read. ( )

Stumbled over this book as a freebie and didnt want to put it down. Read it at record speed and have taken the next one out of the library already. Found a new favourite author. Great!!! ( )

Maura goes to a conference, trying to work out some of her issues with with Daniel and the pulls on his life and hers. When a old friend from college offers her an opportunity to go on a trip with him, his daughter and some of his friends and it all goes wrong when they go down a road and get lost. With snow coming down they shelter in some abandoned houses but find themselves facing more questions. When Maura doesn't turn up for a while Daniel and later Jane start asking questions and then the questions get bigger when they start to find that there are people trying hard to keep this all quiet.

It's an interesting take on the lost in the wilderness story mostly starring Maura with some serious backup from Jane when necessary and occasionally when slightly deus ex. Readable I was shocked by some of the twists. ( )
