He wanted rest and relaxation. What he got was a mystery woman suffering from hypothermia, frostbite, high fevers, amnesia-and rope burns on her wrists and ankles.
With his house in Cincinnati in ruins, financial crimes investigator Seamus McCree retreats to the family cabin for some well-earned rest and relaxation. His plans for a quiet, contemplative winter in the wilds of Michigan's Upper Peninsula are destroyed when he discovers a naked, unconscious woman on his porch during a blizzard.
Snowbound at the cabin, without transportation or phone coverage, Seamus struggles to keep the woman alive and find a way to get an SOS message out. What he doesn't know is that a domestic paramilitary organization dedicated to overthrowing the government is hunting for an escaped female prisoner-and closing in on his isolated refuge.
A thriller that captures nature as a character will appeal to fans of William Kent Krueger, Steve Hamilton, and Nevada Barr.
