The truth is dead and buried. Or is it?
When two bodies are recovered from a house fire, Detective Temeke is called in to investigate what he believes is a routine case. The tragedy takes a more sinister turn when a post mortem reveals that one victim was beaten to death.
House owner Flynn McCann appears to have the perfect life, married to the woman he loves. His life is quiet – even ordinary. Until the fire reduces all he knows to ashes. Consumed with grief, and fleeing suspicion, he must unravel the events leading up to that terrible night to prove his innocence. But time is running out. As the dead prepare to reveal their secrets, he realizes his future is about to unfold in ways he could never have imagined.
In a house with a history of betrayal and revenge, how many lines is Temeke willing to cross to uncover the truth and bring in an elusive killer?
With taut and brooding prose, Dead Cold is a twisty new thriller from the author of The 9th Hour and Night Eyes.
“A crisp, confident and roundly satisfying novel, the characters simply sparkle with life. This is a meaty police procedural I couldn’t put down.” Jenny London, Ebony Press.
“Claire Stibbe has written another corker of a crime thriller that takes hold and won’t let go. Slick and exciting with tons of twists and turns, it kept me riveted until the end. I sincerely hope this series keeps on coming.” Celia Markham, Booksage.
“This is an addicting read. I rarely give a book a five star rating unless it consistently hits the bulls-eye. Dead Cold is all that and so much more.” Southwest Book Reviews
