Publisher's Summary

Other than the bullet lodged less than a centimeter from his heart, former Detroit police officer Alex McKnight thought he had put the nightmare of his partner's death and his own near-fatal injury behind him. After all, Maximilian Rose, convicted of the crimes, has been locked in the state pen for years. But in the small town of Paradise, Michigan, where McKnight has traded his badge for a cozy cabin in the woods, a murderer with Rose's unmistakable trademarks appears to be back to his killing ways. With Rose locked away, McKnight can't understand who else would know the intimate details of the old murders - not to mention the signature blood-red rose left on his doorstep. And it seems like it'll be a frozen day in Hell before McKnight can unravel the cold truth from a deadly deception in a town that's anything but paradise.

A cold day in paradise

T he storyline kept me wondering about how it would end all the way through the book. The characters were interesting and the dialog between them was realistic. I got the Audible book late yesterday and couldn't stop until I finished it today.I can. Hardly wait to start his next book tonight.

Disappointing

Half -baked plot. Simplistic. Poor dialogue. Main character is not likable. Couldn’t finish the book.

I'm still surprised at ...

... the vulgar use of words. It is like painting a portrait using sewage. If that's a person's idea of entertainment, well, it speaks volumes about society.

Really great mystery!

I enjoyed the characters in the story and how they played off of each other. I sincerely liked that I didn't see the end coming. That definitely makes a great mystery for me!

Don’t waste your time!

It starts out interesting. Soon you don’t are what happens to any of the characters. Then becomes ludicrous! So glad it was free.

Really well woven. I enjoyed the twists and turns.

This book was exciting, and interesting. It’s the first book in awhile that I looked forward to after work.
