Overview

Returning to her hometown after the funeral of her parents, writer Erica Falck finds a community on the brink of tragedy. The death of her childhood friend, Alex, is just the beginning. Her wrists slashed, her body frozen in an ice cold bath, it seems that she has taken her own life. Erica conceives a memoir about the beautiful but remote Alex, one that will answer questions about their lost friendship. While her interest grows to an obsession, local detective Patrik Hedstrom is following his own suspicions about the case. But it is only when they start working together that the truth begins to emerge about the small town with a deeply disturbing past.

Don't Thaw This One Out

Written by KAggie97 from Spring, TX on June 5th, 2015

  • Book Rating: 1/5

If this book were about 10 pages, it would be readable. As it is, it's horrible. It starts out wonderfully, with the killer leaving the scene of the murder that the book is based around. What follows is hours of non-sequitur dialogue and stories that revolve around people who, more times than not, have nothing to do with advancing the action. I managed to make it to the 4th disk before I gave up. I listened to the last disk to find out who the killer was and, well, it was well written and presented. But after that there is about an hour of nonsensical prose that, I guess, is meant to serve as an epilogue. No, I didn't listen to the entire book, and I checked other reviews on Amazon to see if I was in the wrong. Turns out many people who read the entire thing agree with me. Pass on this one.
