Thats my revenge! And youll think about that when the rope goes around your neck and the black hood comes down. Called out by Scotland Yard into the teeth of a violent blizzard, Inspector Ian Rutledge finds himself confronted with one of the most savage murders he has ever encountered.

When the victims are tallied the local police are in for another shock: One of the Elcotts children, a boy named Josh, is missing. Now the Inspector must race to uncover a murderer and to save a child before hes silenced by the merciless elementsor the even colder hands of a killer. Haunted and goaded by the soldier-ghost of his own tortured war past, Rutledge will discover the tragedy of war that splintered one marriageand pulled together another. Love, jealousy, greed, revengeor was it some twisted combination of all of them? Any one could lead a man or woman to murder. What had the Elcotts done to ignite their killers rage? With time running out, Rutledge knows all too well that such a cold-blooded murderer could be hiding somewhere in the blinding snow preparing to strike again. From the Hardcover edition.
