Booklist (starred review)
vividly described Muscular action scenes engaging.
bestseller Pearsons tension-filled sequel The conflict between the two worlds Walt serves, the obscenely affluent residents of Ketchum/Sun Valley and the locals who provided services for them, provides an ideal backdrop. Pearsons relentless sense of pacing and serpentine plot will have readers furiously turning pages until the end.
Biological terror is the frightening specter raised in master storyteller Pearsons nerve-racking new thriller. The story and the atmosphere of this winter-set drama are both chilling, and Pearsons spare style and intense pace keep the clock ticking as a sheriff tries to solve a case that encompasses murder, kidnapping and biohazards.
A terrific villain, an appealing protagonist, and breakneck pacing. . . . Ridley Pearson writes thrillers, the kind that try to yank you to the edge of your seat and keep you there.
--Boston Sunday Globe
Pearson again concocts his irresistible, pulse-pounding blend of fact and fiction . . . an intricate cat-and-mouse game that Pearson orchestrates with his pros aplomb.
