Cold Company: An Alaska Mystery

Famed Alaskan "musher" Jessie Arnold thinks she's finally put her dark past behind her. But the excavations on her new cabin unearth a decades-old skeleton entombed in a crumbling basement wall, along with a butterfly pendant necklace worn by the alleged victim of a brutal serial slayer who preyed on area women 20 years earlier.

Publisher's Summary

Famed Alaskan "musher" Jessie Arnold thinks she's finally put her dark past behind her. But the excavations on her new cabin unearth a decades-old skeleton entombed in a crumbling basement wall, along with a butterfly pendant necklace worn by the alleged victim of a brutal serial slayer who preyed on area women 20 years earlier.

Pulled once more into a murder investigation against her will, Jessie fears a grim, half-forgotten nightmare has been reborn. For, in this stark and lonely place, in the first days of the all-too-brief Alaskan summer, another woman has disappeared without a trace. The signs suggest the unthinkable: an insatiable human monster has returned. And the clues she's uncovering hint that Jessie Arnold may well be his next victim.

    "Not one of the best"

    of Sue Henry's mysteries, but it was made doubly disappointing by the narrator, whose voice was grating and pronunciation stilted. Listen to a sample before you download to see if her voice is as unpleasant to you as it was to me.

    "Missing the trooper"

    While I enjoyed the story, even the recap of Hansen's murders, I miss the trooper love story. It is not enjoyable to read of Eller being almost used as replacement. Even the flowers Jessie received she thought first of Alex. I know he eventually returns, but Lyn seems for one or two years to be so involved as to be used by Jess.

    "Great Story"
    If you could sum up Cold Company in three words, what would they be?

    Tough Living.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cold Company?

    The Plane Crash


    Have you listened to any of Mary Peiffer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this is the only one


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Finding the body they have been looking for so long, but the sister died never knowing it was her sister she had been relentlessly searching for.


    Any additional comments?

    Great Book!!

    "Cold Company"

    An interesting and exciting thriller with Alaska background and description accurately related. As an Alaskan reader, I found the details particularly interesting and relevant.
