Officer Mickey Ascherfeld left the Houston Police Department after an armoured truck attack killed her partner and left her with severe injuries changing her life forever.

Four years later the community became a killing ground; her police training was her only defense to survive if she could hang on long enough for help to arrive in time.

At the book’s opening Houston cop Micky Ascherfeld survives a brutal shootout with two heavily armed robbers; her partner does not. Burned out and full of self-doubt, Micky visits a remote Alaskan village to recharge & ends up staying. Her refuge turns into a nightmare when one of the town’s residents goes on a rampage that threatens to wipe out the village unless Micky can stop it.

Thriller! What's good about this book is the killer is slaughtering townspeople in the middle of nowhere, Alaska. About 10 residents. One phone. Even though you know who's going to live/die, it was fun to read a different take on a serial killer novel. I resented going to work because I wanted to keep reading. Would make a good movie (or made-for-TV movie).
Very suspensful book with lots of spots where you want to yell "look out!" or "don't go in there!" I had trouble putting this one down and am glad I had a block of time to read it. Don't look for great writing here. Rather, read for the chills and thrills.
Typical suspense thriller, but it didn't do much for me. It was okay, a way to pass the afternoon. No really memorable characters, though.
Nice quick pace. My mom couldn't put it down, and that's saying something, since she's not a reader.
