A POLICE TRAINEE WORKING HER FIRST HOMOCIDE
A LEGENDARY COP WORKING HIS LAST CASE
AN EERIE LOCAL PSYCHIC
A BRUTAL KILLER WITH A STONE-COLD HEART
Julian Palmer--a young, female, New York City police trainee--leaves the dirty sludge of a Manhattan winter for an internship in northern New York State. Her new boss-legendary Police Chief Winston "Bear" Edwards--has solved every murder case he's ever worked on...except one. On the eve of his retirement, Edwards is baffled by the brutal murder of a young girl. With no clues and no suspects, he's only got his instincts, a bizarre psychic, and Julian to rely on. As the case unravels and potential suspects surround her, Julian suddenly realizes that the small town's shimmering blankets of snow hide shocking secrets--and a killer with the coldest heart.
The Cold Truth is one of those rare novels that comes along every few years and redefines the genre. In a time where every new thriller seems to rely on gimmicks, high concepts, or out of this world scenarios, this is just a no nonsense, plain good read. Like A Simple Plan and The Silence of the Lambs, The Cold Truth relies on fresh, original characters and sharp, clean writing for a fast paced puzzle that will keep you guessing till the last page.
