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.

    "ICE COLD"

    Another excellent book! Sat in my car in our diveway listening to and end of a chapter. On the edge of the seat as always, taking turns all of a sudden without prior warning...

    Thank you; Tess and thank you audible.

    "One star is too much"

    My experience with this book has caused me to lose faith in the rating system. Practically every audiobook I've ever listened to was enjoyable to some degree, even when predictable. This book has some extremely, excruciatingly slow points that are highly predictable. In fact I almost stopped listening. The only other time I ever did that was with a narrator that had a deeply annoying voice/accent. The only reason I kept listening was that I didn't have another book on my iphone to start. If you're going to be predicable keep up the pace, please!!

    "A good listen"

    I was happy to be able to listen to another of Gerristen's books. The narrator on several of her books was, to my ear, painful. Story moves along well and the narrator is excellent

    "Left me just like the title"

    Was ready to quit listening after 2 hours or so. Unfortunately I kept listening. What a waste. The first half of the book was nothing but whiney Maura, very long and drawn out. When Rizzoli did get involved that was a joke too, cannot recommend this to a true fan of Tess Gerristsen's Rizzoli and Isles series. Good grief even the new tv show is better than this book.

    Story
    "Interesting plot/a lot of cussing"

    The book had a great plot but it seems there was a lot of unnecessary usage of vulgar words. The person narrating didn't have a wide variety of tones in her voice for changing between characters maybe would have been better using a male voice for male persons in the story. I think it would have been better for the overview of the story to include the unsavory part of the story which was emphasized with vulgarity.

    "Full of twists and turns"

    An excellent crime drama, full of unpredictable twists and turns, that will hold your interest and keep you wondering not only who did it but what did they do. I listened every chance I had until I finished.

    Story
    "Interesting mystery"

    It was interesting to finally find out what had happened to all the people of this "cult" community where the houses looked like people were in the middle of their daily lives and then suddenly, poof, they're gone. But there were a lot of stupid choices by the characters along the way - major one of which is burying someone before you have a positive ID and having to dig them up later to find out who they really were. Beyond the stupid decisions the characters made there were some edge of your seat scenes and for the most part it kept you wondering what was going to happen next to these poor people who ended up in a snow drift and then a deserted community on their way to have some fun.

    Even though, as I found out later, it's part of a series it could be considered a standalone book with a few threads hanging.
