The bestselling author of Darkhouse and The Caller, Alex Barclay is back with Blood Runs Cold and her trademark blend of thrilling psychological suspense, multi-dimensional characters, and sophisticated, edgy plot lines. She introduces FBI Agent Ren Bryce for the first time, an exciting new Female lead in thriller writing; gifted, beautiful and flawed in equal measure.
It’s deep winter and the setting is the frozen slopes of Quandary Peak, Colorado. They hide a multitude of sins, including the body of a female FBI Agent. Ren Bryce is on the job, drafted in from Denver to lead the investigation but will her hot-blooded nature, the allure of informant Billy Waites and her fondness for a drink get the better of her? As she fights her own demons, pressure from Washington and dwindling leads, the case stalls and a career falters.
But the snow melts and Quandary Peak has disturbing new secrets to give up. Not to mention the discovery of a body. With an explosive plot twist and a cryptic trail leading to a man with a dark past and even darker intentions, Ren Bryce fights her own personal failure to uncover the unimaginable. And in Quandary Peak, Colorado, blood really does run cold.
