FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!

Search and rescue expert Gracie Kinkaid risks her life on a daily basis to save strangers. But going up against a coldhearted murderer is one kind of danger she’s not prepared for…

As a volunteer for Timber Creek Search and Rescue, missing out on holiday festivities is nothing new to Gracie. After all, disasters don’t stop happening because of a cooked turkey. So when Gracie is called out on Thanksgiving for four hikers missing in the wilderness of Southern California, she packs up her gear and heads out to find them.

The mission quickly goes from routine to deadly. An early season blizzard sets in. The one missing person the team does find, famous actor Rob Christian, remembers being attacked by someone else on the trail, someone trying to kill him. And Gracie’s partner leaves to get backup, taking the radio—their only link to the outside world—with him.

Alone in the mountains, Gracie will have to use all her expertise to keep Rob alive. But with an unknown killer lurking somewhere in the dark, even that might not be enough to save them…

A recreational hike in the mountains rimming California's Mojave Desert strands four people connected with a movie shooting; one of them is Rob Christian, a popular actor. Another harbors a secret identity (he's really Radovan Milocek, a notorious Serbian war criminal). Violence follows, and not all four survive as a chaotic scramble down the mountain ensues. A missing persons report goes out, and the search-and-rescue team assembles. Gracie Kinkaid and Steve Cashman go after the hikers, while their leader, Ralph Hunter, monitors from the command post. Determinedly capable, Gracie partners well with the hotdogging Steve as they rescue injured Rob, who is suffering from head trauma. Unbeknownst to the trio, Radovan is trolling the mountains for them. Nature conspires against the group as a freak snowstorm moves in, and Ralph waits helplessly below. VERDICT This exciting, seriously good adventure debut deserves a place in your book carts. With her spunky female leading the way, Rowland dishes out generous portions of adrenaline rush. While the mystery plot is slim, her adventure writing style has real flair.
