All in all, I really did NOT like this book. It seemed like one long prologue.
A serial killer is in Grizzly Falls, Montana, shooting the tires of vehicles containing one lone occupant, a woman, his latest victim. He brings them to his ‘hide-out’, lets them recuperate somewhat, makes them dependant on him to the point of ‘wanting’ him. He takes them out, completely naked in the middle of winter, ties them to trees and leaves them there to die of exposure, leaving behind a star carved into the trees above their heads and a cryptic note using the ini...more
Deep in the winter wilderness of Montana, one by one, the killer sets up car accidents for women driving alone down secluded ice covered roads. Then he rescues them, cuts them out of their cars, treats their wounds and convinces them he's going to rescue them. He is diabolical in his tr...more
The characters in this book were interesting because depending on the view point that you were reading changes wither you liked them or not. It was interesting that there were actually two cases in this novel rather than one, nice little plot twist. I do have to make this comment that the Detective's children are selfish brats and I didn't care for them one bit. But other than that the book was good.
I like how the main charact...more
What I noticed from the get-go was that it appeared (and later, was actually verified)that there were two villains. I was floored because it provided an element to the story which I liked and also later provided depth to the twists which later surfaced.
At first I was convinced that MacGregor, one of the main characters, was the bad guy, but reading on, I found there to be a thi...more
In Montana ist es normaler Weise recht ruhig, doch seit dort ein Serienmörder sein Unwesen treibt, haben die Detective Regan Pescoli und Selena Alvarez alle Hände voll zu tun.
Sie nennen ihn den Stern-Mörder: Er lauert seinen weiblichen Opfern bei einsamen Bergstraßen auf und schießt auf deren Autoreifen, um einen Unfall zu verursachen. Dann verschleppt er die schwerverletzten Frauen und behält...more

I have a problem with the implausibility of the whole business of stalking the victim and being at just the right spot at just the right time in a snowstorm to shoot out a tire as she drives by. Then to rescue the victims from the bottom of a gulch without leaving any trail at all is worse than unbelievable...more

Montana ist in größter Aufregung, denn in der sonst so verschlafenen Gegend, in der es bis auf ein paar Diebstähle und Prügelein unter Jugendlichen kaum nennenswerte Verbrechen gibt, geht ein Serienmörder um. Dieser hat es auf Frauen jeden Altern und Ethnie abgesehen, so dass die Ermittler nicht wissen, mit wem sie es zu tun haben: Er lauert den Frauen in abgelegen Gebieten auf, beschießt das Fahrzeug mit dem sie unterwegs sind, so dass die Frauen in dem gebirgigen Gebiet unausweic...more

While I was a bit surprised at thinking of possibilities pages, and sometimes chapters, before the police in the book did, that did not take away from this being a very satisfying read.

I read it almost half way through and I just couldn't go any further.
Ringkasan ceritanya menarik, sehingga saya tertarik untuk membelinya.
Namun setelah membaca beberapa bab awal, saya merasa sedikit terpaksa untuk meneruskannya hanya karena saya ingin menyelesaikannya.
Dan pada bab ke-8 saya sudah tak sanggup lagi, perkembangan ceritanya terlalu lambat karena ringkasannya sudah menceritakan hampir keseluruhan inti ceritanya.
Jadi bab-bab didalamnya hanya m...more
