Kurzbeschreibung

For Will Innis and his daughter, Devlin, the loss was catastrophic. Every day for the past five years, they wonder where she is, if she is—Will’s wife, Devlin’s mother—because Rachael Innis vanished one night during an electrical storm on a lonely desert highway, and suspected of her death, Will took his daughter and fled.

Now, Will and Devlin live under different names in another town, having carved out a new life for themselves as they struggle to maintain some semblance of a family.

When one night, a beautiful, hard-edged FBI agent appears on their doorstep, they fear the worst, but she hasn’t come to arrest Will. “I know you’re innocent,” she tells him, “because Rachael wasn’t the first…or the last.”
Desperate for answers, Will and Devlin embark on a terrifying journey that spans four thousand miles from the desert southwest to the wilds of Alaska, heading unaware into the heart of a nightmare, because the truth is infinitely worse than they ever imagined.

Praise for Snowbound:

The journey towards the end of SNOWBOUND is as chilling as the setting is cold. Crouch's gift for suspense has never been this personal before. This is Blake Crouch, scholar of words, parser of tales. With great humbleness and the back-up of a Booklist Starred Review, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. SNOWBOUND is simply superb.
CRIMESPREE MAGAZINE

Crouch goes all in, writing harrowing scenes with pump-action Mossbergs and hand-to-hand combat, the site of a shocking betrayal and a frantic struggle for survival...Crouch's plot is compelling...a wild ride through uncharted territory.
CURLED UP WITH A GOOD BOOK

You have never read anything like SNOWBOUND, a sweet nightmare of a book that is unforgettable on several different levels. To put it another way, it's the Highway 61 Revisited of thriller novels. Some of you know what a compliment that is. If you don't, let me end by telling you this: I was screaming at one point while reading, and a few pages later I had tears in my eyes. Readers pour through shelves of books looking for writing like that. Look no further. I can't give you a greater recommendation than that.
BOOKREPORTER

Crouch builds suspense as lines blur between good and bad, and plot twists continue to the last sentence. Absolutely compelling reading, not for the faint of heart.

Von Charles Halloway TOP 1000 REZENSENT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Nach "Pines", das ich wirklich klasse fand (vgl. meine entsprechend Rezension), war ich gespannt, was Blake Crouch noch zu bieten hat. "Snowbound" wurde also mein zweiter Crouch. Zum Inhalt: Will Innis' Frau wird entführt und da der Verdacht schon bald auf Will fällt, flieht er mit seiner Tochter Devlin und taucht für Jahre unter. Als ihm die FBI-Agentin Kaylin eröffnet, dass seine Frau noch lebt, beschließt Will, sein Versteck zu verlassen. Was nun folgt ist insgesamt gut durchdacht und spannend: das Trio macht sich auf die Suche nach Wills Frau, indem sie Kaylin als Köder einsetzen. Immer bemüht, Kaylins Spur nicht zu verlieren, kommt es zu einer Odyssee durch die USA, die in den abgelegenen Bergen Alaskas ihren Showdown findet.
"Snowbound" ist ein Thriller, ohne Science-Fiction-Element und ohne übernatürliche Geschehnisse, einfach nur böse gegen gute Menschen, die allerdings nicht immer so sind, wie sie vorgeben zu sein. "Snowbound" ist grundsolide und spannend, der Showndown in der Lodge in Alaska konnte mich aber nicht vollends überzeugen. Wie schon im Titel erwähnt, lesenswert allemal, aber letztendlich kein absolutes Highlight. Sollten Sie also Lesestoff suchen, vielleicht zuerst mit "Pines" anfangen.

3.0 von 5 Sternen far from being Blake Crouch's best book 4. Juli 2011
Von Bordeaux Dogue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am a huge fan of Blake Crouch! That and the fact that, living in Europe I had to wait for a considerable period of time for this book to be available on my Kindle, had me eagerly waiting, and waiting, and waiting for Snowbound.

The bar having been set so high, things could only turn downhill, regrettably.

The book starts very well, the scene you get transported to is vintage Crouch, but, suddendly, it turns out to be a book like hundreds of other books, with nothing worth keeping in memory.

You can read the book, and a lot of people will certainly enjoy it immensely. It just is not Blake Crouch's best. Might even be his worst.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Terrible. Just Terrible. 8. Februar 2013
Von Tony H - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I don't pray very often, but I prayed more than once while reading this novel that it would just end. The story was implausible-to say the least. Man trained wolf packs, wealthy men willing to pay millions to have sex with pregnant women, massive plot failures and a twist at the end that left me rolling my eyes. If I were the author, I would pull this novel from circulation to protect my reputation.

4.0 von 5 Sternen "If you let fear take over, your life ceases to be your own." 22. Juni 2010
Von Luan Gaines - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is one of the strangest thrillers I have encountered, still very readable for all its faults. Once accepting the incredible naiveté of the protagonist, Will Innes, it is possible to temporarily buy into an unlikely scenario that involves a missing woman, a renegade FBI agent and a lucrative criminal enterprise that originates from within the Mexican drug cartel. The biggest obstacle is Will Innes, at attorney in the southwest whose wife goes missing on her way home one night from her job near the Mexico-Arizona border. Clearly Rachael Innes has been abducted, the violence attending that disappearance an indication of the seriousness of her predicament. And as detectives eventually turn suspicious eyes on the spouse, Innes decides to flee to places unknown with his young daughter.

Devlin has cystic fibrosis, the disease currently contained by specific treatments. Will refuses to take the chance that he might be arrested and separated from his child, leaving Devlin without the comfort of either parent. Living under assumed identities, father and daughter are fairly secure until FBI agent Kalyn Sharp appears on their doorstep in Colorado, convincing a reluctant Will to return with her to Phoenix to identify the man behind Rachael's disappearance, Javier Estrada. This is where the leap of faith comes in, Will's belief that Kalyn can shield him from the consequences of his flight and solve the case with Estrada's arrest.

The rest is a crazy quilt of on-the-fly plans to hit Estrada through his family and force him to reveal the bizarre excuse for Rachael's abduction. Devlin, now sixteen, refuses to leave her father's side, as Will joins forces with Kalyn and the three develop an elaborate plan that takes them across country, through Canada and finally into a remote area of Alaska, where the horrible truth is laid bare. There is no shortage of villains in Crouch's Adventures in Criminal Land, part Dan Simmons (Carrion Comfort) minus the social context, part just plain outrageous enough to make a good thriller. While the plot is certainly a reach, Innis the weak link in agreeing to this misadventure, the result is a shocking and brutal contretemps crawling with killers, man and wolf. Crazy enough to keep me reading. Luan Gaines/2010.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Snowbound? S'no Way 3. April 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
Honestly, I don't remember the last time I quit reading before the end of a book; my Aries personality is always up for a challenge, and come hell or high water, I try to finish what I start.

Not this time.

The whole thing started with a few plot glitches and a titch of improbability, but at least it held my attention. By the time I got about a third of the way in, though, I realized that trouble was brewing; I was quite happy to put it down when anything else to do came along - shaving my legs had more appeal than opening this book to start another chapter. At that point, I said to myself, "Self, thank goodness I got this one through one of the free book sites."

Still, I persisted. That is, till it got worse. And when I'd slogged to the 65% mark, I finally said hold enough. There's no way I want to suffer any more fools just so I can say I'm not a quitter.

The book (which, by the way, managed to earn an average of 4.2 stars from 159 reviewers at the time I downloaded it at Amazon) begins with a decent premise. When Will Innis and his 11-year-old daughter Devlin, who has cystic fibrosis and needs daily therapy, discover that their wife/mother has disappeared, an apparent kidnapping/murder. When the police begin to hound Innis as the probable killer, he packs up his daughter, comes up with new identities and moves to a new town where they somehow manage to live comfortably for five years. Suddenly, they're "discovered" by Kalyn, a female FBI agent who, as it turns out, is no longer an agent but has learned not only the Innis's identity, but the name of the mercenary who kidnapped her. Turns out Will's wife isn't the only one who's been his victim - apparently, she one of several to be captured as part of a human trafficking operation.

When Kalyn turns out to have no qualms about murdering the "bad guys," Will learns that her real intent is to find her sister, who disappeared in the same fashion as Will's wife. Despite the fact that Kalyn (for whom, not surprisingly, Will has developed a case of the hots) hasn't been up-front about her intentions, she convinces Will to drag his daughter on a search-and-seize mission that takes them to remote Alaska. There, also not surprisingly, they find the Lodge That Doesn't Exist, where the rooms are filled with -- well, I won't spoil the rest of the story by revealing what they find. Suffice it to say that it is at this point that things got downright silly and I jumped ship.

It may be that all's well that ends well, but I'll never know. What I do know is that getting to that point would take a heck of a lot more intestinal fortitude than I've got. It's up to you if you want to give it a go, but my advice? Don't bother.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Snowbound - not worth reading 26. Juli 2013
Von Joyce C. Minatra - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Snowbound was ridiculous, unrealistic and saturated with the crude "f" word. If the author took his theme and ideas from his friends on the Kenai he should have gone much farther north for some realistic Alaska. J. Minatra
