The Baker family are San Francisco residents who go camping in an isolated part of Montana¿s Glacier National Park. However, Emily and Doug have a fight so she walks away to calm down. When their ten-year old daughter Paige tries to talk to her father while he is cutting wood, he hurts his hand because of the distraction. He yells at Paige to go to her mother. A frightened Paige leaves accompanied by her dog Kobee, but never finds her mom.

Several hours pass before Emily and Doug realize that Paige is lost. A search proves futile and the next morning he races for help. The National parks Service, the FBI, and surprisingly the San Francisco police join forces. The latter is invited because the national law enforcement officials think foul play is involved with the missing girl. As the window of safety ticks a way, a ¿monster¿ from Emily¿s past when she grew up near here is also hunting Paige.

COLD FEAR is a frightening tale that will chill the audience as the clock to save Paige¿s life seems much faster than normal to her parents and to the reader. The prime story line is superb though the addition of Emily¿s ¿monster¿ and a domestic incident back home detracts from a powerful gut wrenching thriller that seems very real because the key players feel genuine. The audience will care what happens to Paige because Rick Mofina makes her feel like everyone¿s precious child. This is a strong story that hooks the reader from the start.

I honestly have to say that this is one of, if not the best book I have read yet. The author takes you into the story and he tells it really well. I would recommend this book to people that like anything to read. It was a great read and I read it in less than 3 days.

This is a book that will grasp your interest from the first page until you turn the very last one. Once you start reading this book, you will not want to put it down. If you have not read 'If Angels Fall' by this same author than you'll definitely will want to do that. This book is of equal quality of writing. A must read, both of these books, if you enjoy suspenseful, mystery, investigative reporting reading.Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy

A family in crisis make a pilgrimage into one woman’s past in the vast forests of Montana’s Glacier National park. What started as a chance to regroup and strengthen their relationship, will become a parent’s worst nightmare for Doug and Emily Baker when their daughter goes missing and the clock runs down to find her alive. There is more than meets the eye in this riveting suspense as Rick Mofina takes us deep into the wilderness of life, lies, secrets and razor-taut tension in COLD FEAR. Woven into the search for the lost child, is the story of a man on death row with only hours to live, how do they intersect? What could a convicted murderer who claims he is innocent have in common with a ten-year-old child? The past will collide with the present, will it continue one person’s dark nightmare or shed light on a hidden truth? There is a missing link, but will it be found by the law or the press? Will it be in time to save the lives that hang in the balance? Intense, nerve-shredding reading told in a gripping and mesmerizing way! Great character interactions, realistic emotions!

This was a very good book. Had a tendency to drag along and be a little bit tedious in places. Also a little bit predictable.Inspite of these little flaws, this is still a good solid four star read, hard to put down.
