From back of book:
In Wyoming for a medical conference, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip. But when their SUV stalls on a snow-choked mountain road, they’re stranded with no help in sight.
As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in the remote village of Kingdom Come, where twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Something terrible has happened in Kingdom Come: Meals sit untouched on tables, cars are still parked in garages. The town’s previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the cold darkness—someone who is watching Maura and her friends.
Days later, Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli receives the grim news that Maura’s charred body has been found in a mountain ravine. Shocked and grieving, Jane is determined to learn what happened to her friend. The investigation plunges Jane into the twisted history of Kingdom Come, where a gruesome discovery lies buried beneath the snow. As horrifying revelations come to light, Jane closes in on an enemy both powerful and merciless—and the chilling truth about Maura’s fate.

My Review:
This book was great. It moved forward and never seemed to get bogged down. The story pulled you in. The characters each had their own personalities and though Gerritsen doesn't go into the back story of the characters you get a sense of what type of people they were. The one character that got on my nerves though was Arlo (no sure if I'm spelling the name right). All he kept talking about was food. I mean really with all that was going on.... Oh and he was a food snob. The ending had a twist so you think you know how things ended up the way they did but nope it all started in an expected way. Perfect name for the village too...Kingdom Come. I just knew something bad had happen and was going to happen there. In fact, if it was me I would've been reluctant to even step foot pass the gate. Narrator voice was great. She did a great job of reading the suspense. TBR list #1

  1. I love the Rizzoli and Isles books! I tried watching the series, but it's only very loosely based on the books. I can't wait for the next one!

  2. A friend picked this up from the library. I hadn't heard of her before but now I'm def going to read others.
