Many thanks to Boldwood Books for my spot on this Blog Tour.
A police procedural with a chilling beginning which gave me the snow killings. And a snow killer.
A family was wiped out except for a child. He grew up and took his revenge. Fifty years later the snow killings started again. And this time it was DCI John Barton in charge. The investigation started amongst the snow, going back deep into the history where it all began.
My first book by author Ross Greenwood, I was blown away by the premise of a story. Believe me, I had multiple theories for the murders 50 years later. And yes, they were all clichéd. The writing was smooth and managed to curve into a twist where needed. So explosive was the story and its team of investigators that I could not stop reading once I started late into the night. I got to know the killer too.
Fast paced, action filled scenes made me rush through the book. With dual POV of DCI Barton and The Snow Killer, it gave me insights from both ends of spectrum. And I could do nothing but cheer one and wait for the unfurling of the other. Quite a different read it was to get into the minds of both!! I was completely weirded out.
A fun read, I would say!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Fear the north wind. Because no one will hear you scream…’
A family is gunned down in the snow but one of the children survives. Three years on, that child takes revenge and the Snow Killer is born. But then, nothing – no further crimes are committed, and the case goes cold.
Fifty years later, has the urge to kill been reawakened? As murder follows murder, the detective team tasked with solving the crimes struggle with the lack of leads. It’s a race against time and the weather – each time it snows another person dies.
As an exhausted and grizzled DI Barton and his team scrabble to put the pieces of the puzzle together, the killer is hiding in plain sight. Meanwhile, the murders continue…
