They are the victims no one has ever cared about - until now.
Agents Stevens and Windermere return in the blistering new crime novel from the fast-rising, multi-award-nominated suspense star.
She was a forgotten girl, a runaway found murdered on the High Line train through the northern Rocky Mountains and, with little local interest, put into a dead file. Only, she was not alone. When Kirk Stevens and Carla Windermere of the joint FBI-BCA violent crime force stumble upon the case, they discover a horror far greater than anyone expected - a string of murders on the High Line, all of them young women drifters whom no one would notice. But someone has noticed now. Through the bleak midwinter and a frontier land of forbidding geography, Stevens and Windermere follow a frustratingly light trail of clues - and where it ends, even they will be shocked.

I have enjoyed all of the Windermere and Stevens series. Edoardo Ballerini's stellar narration just makes them that much better.
This book is a police procedural that does not involve super human scenes. It is just a believable story of crime and suspense and a mad man who wants to murder beautiful women because he believes he's been wronged by all beautiful women he has ever tried to spend time with. So he picks the ones he thinks no one will miss and leaves their bodies along the railroad in Montana. Needless to say it's freezing and the murderer is an experienced hiker which our heroes are not.
This is a book about outfoxing someone who has been at it so long he believes himself to be the fox.
This is also a book about friendship and one young woman's quest to get justice for her friend and the lengths she will go to do this.
The ending is kind of sad but does bring full closure to this story.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
