Frozen Past – A Thriller

Luke is young. Eliana is his whole world and for someone his age, the burden is immense. You see, Eliana is being stalked. Stalked by a madman who wants nothing more than to see her dead.

The madman knows things that no one should know and sees things that no one should see. He tells them if they say a word to anyone, they will both die. And Luke can’t let that happen.

Eliana’s past is catching up with her and Luke must do anything to save her.


Praise for Amazon best-selling author Richard C Hale and his novel Frozen Past:

** “Hale captures emotion, seemingly effortlessly, and in turn this created reactions from me. During this read, I experienced a spectrum of emotion - anger, fear, and heartbreak to name a few. I even found myself "talking" to the characters more than once. When an author can elicit these reactions, I consider this a true talent.” ~ Carolyn Arnold, Author of the Amazon best-selling NovelTies That Bind

** “Richard Hale has the gift, to take you captivated from, page 1, until, you have run to the end, because, you couldn't bear to put it down.” ~ Lmartini

** “Mr. Hale's first thriller, NEAR DEATH, was an excellent debut novel but with FROZEN PAST, he's bounded to a new level of mystery and suspense. Don't let this one pass you by.” ~ Chuck Barrett, Amazon Best-Selling Author of The Savannah Project and The Toymaker

Interview With The Author

Q - So, what makes the Jaxon Jennings’ Thriller Mystery Series so special?

A – Jaxon’s not your typical hero. He’s flawed, and that makes him entertaining. As a reader, I want to be entertained and thrilled. I’m a fan of the Action & Adventure and Thriller genres, so it was natural for me to write in them. I’m also a lover of things that go bump in the night and I add a little creepiness just to make things interesting.

Not only will you want to keep reading late into the night, the pace and action keeping your nose in the page, but when you finally close the book, you’ll probably keep the light on as well.

“Help me…”

Q – With the main story focusing around two younger characters, is Frozen Past written for adults?

A – It’s definitely an adult book. With a Thriller, a certain amount of violence and adult material is expected, and Frozen Past definitely fits into that category. Younger readers are not the target audience of the Jaxon Jennings’ series.

Jaxon is introduced to the reader in Frozen Past, and though it is not really a prequel, he shares the spotlight with Luke and Ellie, two teenagers who find themselves thrust into a killer’s world for seemingly no reason at all. I feel the divide between the adult world and the kids’ world makes the story that much more enthralling.

Q – Should the series be read in any certain order?

A – Each book is a separate story and I wrote them to be enjoyed in any order. If you find you like to stick to a chronological timeline, I’d suggest following this sequence:

- Frozen Past
- Cache 72
- Father Figure

    5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining all around! 27 Mar. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This is the first Richard Hale novel I've read, and I've found a new author. Along with my favorite NY Times Best-Selling authors, I will check out Hale's other novels and look forward to future releases.

    Not normally a person drawn to the young adult genre, I wasn't sure what I would think of this book. But don't let the book blurb fool you. This is a thriller, through and through.

    The story is told through multiple viewpoints - the teenagers Luke and Ellie, the killer and the police detective Jaxon Jennings.

    When it comes to the teenagers, and their group of friends, Hale did an excellent job in capturing the essence of being that age. It's as if he were that age just yesterday the way he has them interact and think.

    The book starts out with an arranged meeting for a snowball fight between neighborhood teen boys, but Hale's writing voice pulled me through. It didn't take long for a gruesome discovery, which cut the game short. From this point, he really had me.

    The killer is one twisted, and sick man with his affection set on young kids. He lures them by whispering out from bushes, also covered from the darkness of night "help me" - creepy. With more deaths, and more gruesome findings, the kids still think they can handle things on their own. Even, when Luke and Ellie are befriended by a strange man on Facebook, who is obviously the killer, they believe they can handle the situation.

    In the meantime, with the bodies of young boys being discovered, Detective Jaxon Jennings and his partner Sally are assigned the case. It seems whenever they turn around Luke and his friends are somehow connected with the findings, but with nothing concrete tying them to the crimes.

    I wasn't expecting much from this book but was pleasantly surprised. It was a good little thriller. At first I thought it was going to be aimed at a younger audience because of the age of the kids but no,it turned out completely different. Well done

    This book had me hooked within minutes and the suspense was maintained throughout the story until the very end.
    I thought the writing style was very good and that including the well written and interesting characters.
    One of the very few books that I did not want to put down - I look forward to reading more from Richard C Hale.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Suspense so taut, you can hear it twang 14 Dec. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I thought this might be more of a young adult book than a fully -fledged adult thriller. The story starts by introducing us to a young boy from the past, and continues in the present with more adolescents. Ellie and Luke are the main teenage characters, but they are joined by their mates on various escapades and get into varying degrees of trouble.

    Just when you thought it would be a schoolboy murder mystery with boy wonder beating the cops at their own game, we meet the police team Jaxon and Sally. They have to start trying to solve the crimes committed by the serial killer who attacks both dogs and kids and does unspeakable things to both.

    It becomes evident as time goes on, that the serial killer is pursuing a particular type of revenge, is stalking Ellie, and is targeting Jaxon. The tension builds as both Luke and the police try to track and bring down the man behind the killings, but always seem to be one step behind.

    It's a really great story, a page-turner and there's enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. The teenage romance is a wee bit over the top as they are only 14 yet you'd think they were nearer 16 or 17. Jaxon is a rounded character and I like the way things don't just fall into place, he's a clueless as anyone would be when faced with the lack of evidence.

    There's a nice touch of technological wizardry too, and a really unexpected ending. Recommended.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not a Young Adult genre 14 Feb. 2015
    By jill
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I had reservations about reading this mainly because the description made it sound a bit like young adult genre but it was free and had good reviews so I had nothing to lose.

    I was gripped from the start. The initial characters are teenagers (definitely not of the famous five variety) with Jaxon being introduced later. The story works very well the teenagers are an important component of the book they bring so much to the story, young love and the IT guru aspect that could only work with young adults who were brought up with technology.

    It is definitely an adult thriller the killer being a very believable, definitely evil person. The book as a whole is so believable it is something you would easily find on the news very realistic characters and not all surviving the ordeal.

    This is a must read for anyone who likes thrillers I found it very difficult to put down. It is also very well written I didn't find any typos or bad grammer that is usually evident in free kindle books.

    Richard is now among my favourite authors I will definitely be downloading the next book.
