Product Description

Product Description

New York Times bestselling author Stephen Frey thrills readers with the mesmerizing tale of a small-town sheriff who must confront the worst violence that man and nature possess.

 Bruner, Wisconsin, is really two different towns. On one side are the magnificent summer estates of wealthy families who value their privacy and privilege above all else. A few miles away, but a world apart, are the homes of the working men and women who cook, clean, and tend to the needs of the summer visitors. It’s a place of staggering natural beauty, but where death can come unexpectedly and with no regard for a person’s bank account or family tree. A place of steadfast loyalties and friendships, but where the long and brutal winter can make even the most intimate friends turn on each other with frightening intensity.

This is the place where Sheriff Paul Summers finds himself grasping for answers when the wild, unpredictable woman who captured his heart years ago is discovered brutally and spectacularly murdered inside her family’s snowbound estate. As the last person to see her alive, and given his complicated history with the victim, Paul is not only lead investigator on the case but, in the eyes of many in Bruner, the prime suspect in her killing. Battling rumors of an evil cult’s being formed just outside of town, the disappearance of another citizen, and a wife whose grasp of reality is quickly slipping away, Paul must race to find the true guilty party before a massive winter storm leaves them all cut off from the outside world and at the mercy of a remorseless killer.

As the approaching storm gathers in intensity, so do the twists and turns that bring Paul ever closer to unraveling the big secrets that haunt this small town. In a stunning conclusion, Paul witnesses firsthand the startling power and beauty of heaven’s fury.

2.0 out of 5 stars not my type of hero 15 Feb 2011
By read der - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The hero? seems so confused and unsure about everything, especially with his ex-girlfriend. His wife was a shadowy person. I didn't feel like I ever got to know any of these people. The author did an excellent job describing the area. Too bad he didnt do the same for the characters. for any woman who has a husband force her to her knees, and put a gun to her head his cheating on her should be the least of her worries. this man certainly is off center and no hero.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not up to Frey 9 Oct 2010
By cehendy - Published on Amazon.com

This book is not up to previous Frey novels and will probably be the last of his books I will purchase. I wonder if he has now hired others to ghostwrite for him.

2.0 out of 5 stars A dud 25 Nov 2012
By M. Owens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a tedious, clumsy read. The premise is interesting, and the only reason I kept on until the end, but it was slow going as I kept tossing the book down in frustration at the writing.

The main character is a true antihero, but worse than that, he is a dull and leaden narrator. You would expect a book written in first person to benefit somehow from the narrator's perspective, but in this case the protagonist's tepid voice, ponderous explanations, and bleary insights do more to obscure the story than reveal it. We learn very little of interest from his perspective, and I found myself wishing I could get out of his thick head to experience what could otherwise be an engaging story.

Despite the challenge of the book's perspective, I did enjoy a few of the male characters. The author managed to make some of them flawed, interesting, and occasionally charming. The same cannot be said of the female characters. Every woman in the book fell into one of two categories: either a dumpy matron, or a slinky, unpredictable nymphomaniac. For a reason that is never explained, the narrator cannot pass a day without some sex-crazed townie trying to unzip his pants.

Although the plot has a lot of potential, the way it is executed is clumsy and uneven. The devices the author uses to build suspense don't work well to propel the story. As an example, he repeatedly employs a technique of leading up to a climactic scene, and then cutting away abruptly just before the height of the action. This can be a successful dramatic device, but the way it's done here it's just awkward and disorienting. The first time it happened, I thought the transcription to my Kindle edition must have omitted a couple of pages of prose. It was not until later that I realized that the author did this on purpose.

After reading this novel I'm surprised Stephen Frey is such a successful author. Perhaps, as other reviewers have said, this book is not up to his usual standard. If so, he is doing his fans a disservice in releasing such a sloppy work of fiction.

1.0 out of 5 stars Juvenile male fantasies scribe relationships in this book 2 July 2014
By wendy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I did not get past page 50 on this one. The main character is speaking, and he seems to have the intellectual maturity of a 16-year-old boy. Not only does he terrorize his wife with a gun to the head, she is "obviously" to blame for his infidelity. Follow this: she is so jealous of his ongoing affair with a beautiful rich girl, he has no choice but to cheat because she blames him anyway. I can take a little old-fashioned stereotyping of the male/female roles for drama, but this book feels like it came out of a disturbed junior-high boy.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's really Brule Wisconsin 28 Oct 2011
By BASHMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The author must have spent some time in Northern Wisconsin--it's as if the place names have been changed to protect the innocent/guilty. His fictional town must have been modeled on Brule Wisconsin. I enjoyed the novel and felt the plot stood on it's own merits but having grown up in that part of the country I was very familier with old estates and lodges along the Brule river as well as the wide gulf between the owners and the locals--making the novel a compelling must read for me.

If you are ever up that way be sure to rent a canoe for a trip down the Brule river--beautiful!
