Publisher's Summary

As the snow melts, a disturbing truth emerges. 

Colorado mountain detective David Wolf is back in the latest pause-resisting mystery that will leave your heart pounding and lungs pumping for air. 

A Rocky Points businessman goes missing, leaving behind an SUV drifted over in snow and a lot of questions for the Sluice-Byron County SD. But the answers are hard to come by, and Chief Detective David Wolf’s personal problems aren’t making investigating any easier for him and his team.

As the temperatures rise in the Chautauqua Valley, the most important clue emerges from the melting drifts. At the same time, Wolf’s memories surface from the shadowy depths of his mind and back into his life. Even for a man with Wolf’s history, dealing with the case and facing his demons head-on proves too much, and Wolf is brought to his knees, both physically and mentally.  

Will the valley’s best cop rise again, purified by fire? Or will his ashes drift away on the high winds of the Rockies, leaving behind a justice unpaid? 

If you like C. J. Box’s Joe Pickett, James Patterson, Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch, Craig Johnson’s Longmire, and David Baldacci, then this David Wolf Mystery Thriller is sure to keep you listening.

Wolf has got some issues in this one!

First I have to say I think Jeff Carson has written an excellent addition to the David Wolf series with this book.
In Drifted David Wolf is really having some difficulties. Since his fiancé has left him with her daughter in the previous book, Wolf has started drinking again and it's affecting his work. Not to mention his home and health. And oh yea, memory... he forgets a visit with his son and his girlfriend and they have a few surprises for him.
So he gets a one week suspension and must go for counseling. And while all this is going on he's heading up an investigation that his subordinates don't think he's up for.
You think you know what's going on but in the end Carson throws in a super twist that changes the whole direction of the case Wolf is working on.
Sean Patrick Hopkins does an excellent job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Good story

Written and read well. Hard to like this main character at first. Arrogant, rude, inconsiderate comes to mind. No swearing, gore or sex makes it a pleasant listen even with murders involved.

Fantastic Narrator

I’ve listened to all of the David Wolf stories so far and I just love the narrator. He’s very consistent with the various voices and has a nice strong delivery. As always the story line was very interesting and enjoyable. I really like how the David Wolf, Ratchet and Patterson characters have developed over the series. I’m looking forward to the next book.

Getting your head straight

Another great story by Carson and excellent narration by Hopkins. The protagonist David Wolfe falls apart in this story for a few months. He is surrounded by wonderful characters who are co-workers and other friends who stand by him.
In the midst of all his turmoil he still manages to work on and solve a murder mystery.

This is book 12 of the David Wolfe series and every story has been excellent, and exciting . I'm about to listen to book 13. I hope the series will continue.

Okay book and really good narration, finally..


SPOILERS
I’ve always liked the David Wolf stories but I wasn’t crazy about this one. I didn’t like the problems Wolf had, that led to his heavy drinking, at home and him showing up at work drunk. It went on too long. And when the drunkenness stopped, he started having anxiety attacks. And like almost every stupid man out there he thought he didn’t need any help. Wolf had waaaay too many problems in this book.

I’m going to read book 13 but I hope he doesn’t have so many problems this time.

No romance and the F-bomb was used 5 times.

As to the narration: Sean Patrick Hopkins was so much better in this book.
