A tautly written mystery thriller that debuts a new series!

Meet Arn Anderson, a retired cop who has been hired by a local TV station in his old home town of Cheyenne, Wyoming, to investigate three cold cases from ten years ago. The cases all involved local cops whose murders were never solved. Working with his old friend, TV investigative reporter Ana Maria Villarreal, Arn thinks the three cases might be connected. The three officers were all investigating two local murders involving the same killer. After the death of the two investigating officers and their boss, the killer went dormant. When Arn's old friends on the force do their best to impede the investigation, insisting that the three cases are not connected, Arn refuses to bow down to the pressure.

As the investigation plays out on Ana Maria's TV news show, the killer stirs and starts to hunt new victims. When Ana Maria is lured into two different traps and Arn comes to her rescue, the killer almost finishes them off. Arn connects with family and friends of the victims and starts to get a different view of the personal life each man lived and the stories don't match up. With the killer striking out faster after each new news episode, things come to a final showdown between the killer and Arn.

I really enjoyed letting these characters tell me their story. The author really brought them all to life in a way that made you feel like you were with them every step of the way. Every scene was done in a way that made you feel the cold and suspense. The scenes in the police station involving the confrontations between Arn and his old friend, the acting chief made you feel what each man was feeling and thinking. The descriptions of the doughnuts and coffee at the station made you smell and taste them like they were right in front of you. I highly recommend this new series to anyone who enjoys a well written murder plot with lots of suspense. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series, as well as other books the author has written.
