Product Description

Product Description

There's a time to love, a time to hate, a time to heal . . . and a time to kill.
On a freezing cold winter's day, the body of a young woman is pulled from an icy canal in London. To D.I. Dan Carter it looks like a tragic accident rather than the work of a murderer. But D.C. Ebony Willis is not so sure. Why has the woman's face been painted with garish make-up and wrapped in a plastic bag?
Meanwhile cosmetics saleswoman Tracy Collins receives a phonecall. It's been twenty years since she gave up her daughter for adoption, so when Danielle gets in touch, she hesitantly begins to kindle a relationship with her and her grandson Jackson. But when Danielle suddenly disappears, Tracy is plunged into the middle of a living nightmare.
With the discovery of another body, it becomes clear that Danielle is in grave danger. There is no time to lose and Ebony Willis must take on the most challenging assignment of her career - to play the role of the killer's next victim.
From the author of the bestselling Dead of Winter comes a page-turning new thriller that will have you hooked from start to finish.
DC Ebony Willis must relive her own troubled past as she goes undercover to ensnare a ruthless and twisted killer
'By the end of this book I was literally gasping for breath! Totally gripping'
'A gritty and atmospheric read' Closer

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and compelling piece of crime fiction 18 Dec 2013
Cold as Ice is very well written piece of crime fiction. I experienced no problems reading the novel. The tone is straight away set, without any delays. It concerns the body of a young girl found in appalling conditions. Could this be an accidental death? Could this be a suspicious crime? The two leading senior police detectives are conducting a full scale investigation into this. Danielle's character is intriguing, as she lost contact from her biological mother. Tracy gave up daughter for adoption rights. Can a relationship be rekindles between the two, as there has been contact? This story is highly emotional. It gives us an insight to the characters. There are dangers ahead for Danielle, as you are about to find out. From the start to the end, the story is enthralling, gripping and compelling. There is hardly a moment of calmness. The attention to details of forensic crime and police procedures are well researched and insightful. Overall, it is crime fiction novel that I would rate highly. I intend to read future publications of the author.

4.0 out of 5 stars A crime triumph! 24 Jan 2014
Having recently completed a long run of Young Adult novels I was looking forward to reading another crime thriller, one of my favourite genres thanks to the likes of Linwood Barclay and Sophie Hannah.
This was my first taste of Lee Weeks' writing and I was certainly not let down. 'Cold As Ice' is a page turning thriller that had me gripped from start to finish.

Cold As Ice starts with a bang with the discovery of a young woman's body. As her remains are pulled from the icy canal it becomes clear that this was not an ordinary murder. Wrapped in a plastic bag, the woman's face had been meticulously painted with garish make-up. "Her face looked like something from a waxworks horror museum; bloated and blackened by the water." Lee Weeks includes quite a gruesome postmortem scene which in hindsight was probably not best for me to read on a packed London YouTube train (with an unsuspecting member of the public reading over my shoulder.) However, this scene served it's purpose - to make the reader empathise emphatically with the murderer's victims.

Running alongside this, the reader is introduced to Tracy Collins who gave up her daughter Danielle for adoption twenty years ago. As they try to rekindle their relationship, Danielle mysteriously disappears leaving behind Jackson her young, disabled son. Again, Lee Weeks succeeds in making the reader empathise with the victims, this time through a heart wrenching moment with young Jackson. As Jeanie, a police office working on the case, questions Jackson on what happened the night his mummy disappeared information is slowly drip fed to the reader and suspects begin to form. We are introduced to a mysterious, psychotic character who fantasies about killing, torturing and killing young women.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average at best 18 Jan 2014
Not a bad book, but not a great one either. There are some glaring errors which rather spoilt it for me (eg at one stage, a man previously described as "naked" takes off his trousers!)
