"IN A PANIC I GASPED FOR AIR, BUT THERE WASN'T ANY. I TRIED TO CRY OUT, BUT I WAS ALONE, AND IN MY HYSTERIA IT HIT ME. I HAD FELT A SIMILAR FEELING BEFORE--LIKE MY BODY WAS GIVING OUT ON ME, AND I KNEW WHAT IT MEANT. I WAS DYING."

On the slopes of Park City, Utah's newest ski resort a woman is found dead. At first glance, it has all the makings of an accident. But what if wasn't? What if she was murdered?

A SECOND BODY IS FOUND

Just as Private Investigator Sloane Monroe feels she's close to solving the case, a second dead body is found. With the killer aware that Sloane will stop at nothing to find him, her life is in danger, her every move being tracked. Will Sloane uncover the truth before he strikes again?

Cheryl Bradshaw has crafted a fast-paced thriller that draws the reader in with its easy, flowing prose. The character of Sloane Monroe is our protagonist and narrator - as with any first person narrative, having a well-developed voice is key here as otherwise discrepancies between a character's actions and how they 'talk' to the reader can stick out. There are no such discrepancies here - Sloane Monroe's character and narrative voice are seamless. She is likeable and open yet it becomes clear she has hidden depths that intrigue the reader. She can be soft and strong, adapting to the characters and situations she encounters as you would expect a private detective to be able to do. There is also a sense of history to Sloane and her compatriots which creates a very effective sense of continuity, you feel like you are walking into a world that has been ticking along for a good long while, even though this is the first of Sloane's stories. Again, this is key for a debut that is also the beginning of a series - the familiarity of a murder mystery narrative allows for the author to steadily build up emotional complexities as the plot goes through its twists and turns so that, by the end, not only do we know what happened and why, we have also made a new friend in Sloane Monroe and we are looking forward to joining her in the next adventure.
