When a paralysed woman is brutally slain in her bed, village bobby Jonas Holly is shocked and distraught. Shipcott in bleak mid-winter is a close-knit community where no stranger goes unnoticed, so how did anyone enter and kill and leave no trace?
Jonas finds himself sidelined as the investigation is snatched away from him by the abrasive detective John Marvel. Is his first murder investigation over before it’s begun?
But someone in the village blames Jonas for the tragedy. Someone seems to know every move he makes. Someone thinks he’s not doing his job. And when the killer claims another vulnerable victim, the taunts turn into sinister threats.
Stung into action, Jonas strikes out alone on a mystifying hunt, blinded by rising paranoia, fear for his own invalid wife, and relentless snow. But the threats don't stop - and neither do the murders . . .
Until Jonas realizes that catching the killer may not be the job he’s meant to be doing.
