Ice Cold | [Tess Gerritsen]

Ice Cold

Something terrible has happened in the snowbound village of Kingdom Come, Wyoming, where 12 eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned.

This is the disturbing setting where vacationing medical examiner Maura Isles and her traveling companions find themselves trapped during a ferocious snowstorm.

Publisher's Summary

Something terrible has happened in the snowbound village of Kingdom Come, Wyoming, where 12 eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Meals remain untouched on dining room tables, cars are still in garages, and the town's residents have vanished into thin air. This is the disturbing setting where vacationing medical examiner Maura Isles and her traveling companions find themselves trapped during a ferocious snowstorm. Thinking they've found a safe haven, they soon realize that they are not alone in the valley....someone is watching.

After one of their party is injured, Maura sets out to find help. But just as she leaves the village, she is attacked and dragged into the woods. A blow falls and the world goes black. Searching for her friend and colleague, police detective Jane Rizzoli's investigation leads her to the abandoned valley and a gruesome discovery. But it turns out Maura's not dead--she's on the run, forced to place her life in the hands of the unlikely savior who has kept her alive until now: a 16-year-old boy.

    "Great Story - BAD reader"

    This was a very good book. Tess Gerritsen writes taut, edge of the seat books. This was one of them. It was somewhat spoiled by the reader, however. She read in somewhat of a monotone and had either a lisp or some speech impediment that was very distracting. I enjoyed the story, just wish I had read it instead of listening to it.

    "HORRIBLE NARRATION!!!"
    What didn???t you like about Tanya Eby???s performance?

    The narration was almost comedic! I will NEVER download another audiobook read by Tonya Eby.

    "Decent story, bad reader"

    I was really drawn into this story when I first started reading it. I got the audio book so I could listen at work. I was hugely annoyed by the choice of reader. She sounded like a robot and the voices of the character were hokey. It kind of took away from the story. I kept having to try and imagine how I would have made it sound in my head instead. As for the story, the ending was kind of a let down. Maybe I just prefer drama and resolution as opposed to anti-climactic surprises.

    "A "page turner!!""

    I commute with my sister to work and we and we usually spend the first half of our commute discussing work, etc., before we listen to our book du jour. Not with this book! It was a fast-paced, edge of your seat story. Wow! Don't miss this one!!

    "Tess is the best!!"

    This book leaves you wanting more and more. I can not wait till "The Killing Place" comes out. I encourage everyone to start at the begining of this series "The Surgeon" so that you can fully appreciate the story. I am soooo glad there will be a T.V. show. I hope it does her books justice.
    Keep writing Tess I can't get enough.

    "Not the correct narrator..."

    I am typically such a fan of Tess' work, that the narration wouldn't matter so much, but this narration is so awful I couldn't enjoy the story. At one point, I considered not finishing it because I find it so disturbing and so inappropriate for this story. Just for the sake of knowing how the story ends, I will continue.

    Story
    "Not the best not the worst..."

    I am probably bias as I watch the show, but I have grown attached to the character's personality on the show and the characters in the book, seem lacking. Maura is presented is mousy and weak but I don't think that is necessarily true to her character, at least not the character I have grown accustomed to. The same with Rizzoli, I don't think she would be as passive either.
    The story was ok. Again, decisions made by the characters didn't seem to fit the personalities I know. It also seemed to wrap up quickly. It drags on throughout and then boom its over.
    The narrator was OK, but seemed to have problems with some of the male voices, making them sound kind of silly.
    I did enjoy the twists and found myself hurrying back to the car to find out what happened next. I am also intrigued as to the ending, a small section is left open. Again, not the worst but not the best either, but enough to keep my interest.

    "Ok story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Story was ok but I had a hard time with this narrator. I think it would have been better if I read this one myself instead of listening.


    How could the performance have been better?

    By using a different narrator. This one was very bland and didn't add anything to the storytelling.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Sure

    "Love this book!"
    Where does Ice Cold rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks in the top 10% of all the books I have read.


    What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

    Tanya Eby is a great story teller. Easy to understand and expresses emotion well.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a big fan of "Rizzolli & Isles"!

    I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!

    "predictable story, weak portrayal of strong woman"
    Would you try another book from Tess Gerritsen and/or Tanya Eby?

    Probably, but I was disappointed in this one. I wanted to love it. I watch the TV show and I like it better than I liked this book ... which is never true. I always like the books better.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Dr Isles should be strong, a bit arrogant, intelligent, opinionated. A woman I would admire and love for her strength. A woman many would dislike for the same reasons. But, instead, she felt weak and disjointed. I didn't like the way she was written and I really hated the way she was portrayed.
