Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

New York Times” bestselling author Tess Gerritsen’s relentless, inventive novels take readers on pulse-racing thrill rides that are as satisfying as they are heart-stopping. Now, in this edge-of-your-seat suspense novel, a mysteriously isolated town stands abandoned as a silent watcher waits.
In Wyoming for a medical conference, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip. But when their SUV stalls on a snow-choked mountain road, they’re stranded with no help in sight.
As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in the remote village of Kingdom Come, where twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Something terrible has happened in Kingdom Come: Meals sit untouched on tables, cars are still parked in garages. The town’s previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the cold darkness–someone who is watching Maura and her friends.
Days later, Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli receives the grim news that Maura’s charred body has been found in a mountain ravine. Shocked and grieving, Jane is determined to learn what happened to her friend. The investigation plunges Jane into the twisted history of Kingdom Come, where a gruesome discovery lies buried beneath the snow. As horrifying revelations come to light, Jane closes in on an enemy both powerful and merciless–and the chilling truth about Maura’s fate.

Mana recenzija/My review

Savā pieejā noziegumam, tā izmeklēšana un atklāšanai Ice Cold labā veidā atšķiras no iepriekšējām sērijas grāmatām.

Pēc kārtējās darba konferences, šoreiz Vaiomingā, un vilšanās pilnas telefonsarunas ar Danielu, Maura piekrīt kopā paziņu no mācību laikiem doties sniegotā piedzīvojumā kopā ar vēl trim līdzbraucējiem. Bet, kad uznāk sniega vētra un laikapstākļi krasi pasliktinās, viss no laba aiziet pilnībā šķērsām. Pierādās, ka, pat esot 100% optimistam, tas nepalīdz, ja kāds vispirms šauj un jautā pēc tam.

Kad Maura neraksturīgi sev paredzētajā laikā nav atpakaļ, nedod par sevi ziņu un neatbild uz zvaniem, viņas draugi un kolēģi sāk uztraukties. Kā likuma pārstāvjiem Džeinai un viņas vīram FBI aģentam Gabrielam ir vieglāk virzīt meklēšanas procesu, bet līdzi dodas arī mācītājs Daniels un Antonijs no Mefisto kluba.

Sākotnēji izmeklēšanā visu uzmanība vērsta uz reliģisku kopienu/sektu. Lai gan ne bez pamata, valda stereotipi. Intriģējoša pirmā nodaļa.

No tēliem vēl gribētos pieminēt Džulianu Henriju Pērkinsu un viņa kompanjonu, suni vārdā Bear. Abiem būtiska loma pēc sastapšanās ar Mauru.

Pārsvarā nodaļas ir no Mauras skatpunkta; situācija, kurā viņa nonākusi, atklāj citu Mauras īpašību kopumu un raksturu. Grāmatai arī kopumā ir daudz psiholoģiskāks spēks.

Alternatīvais nosaukums The Killing Place.

­                                                                                                                                                

In its approach to  the crime and investigation Ice Cold in a good way is different from previous books in the series.

After another work related conference at Wyoming and disappointing phone call with Father Daniel Brophy, Maura agrees to go to a ski resort with an acquaintance from college, his daughter and two friends. But when the snow storm starts and weather gets horrible everything from good goes to bad and then worse. It proves that even being 100% optimist doesn’t help if someone shoots first and asks later.

When Maura doesn’t come back when she should and doesn’t answer to her calls, her friends and colleagues start to worry. Being representatives of law it’s easier for Jane and her husband FBI agent Gabriel Dean to advance the search. To Wyoming with them also go Daniel and Anthony Sansone from Mephisto Club.

At the beginning of the investigation almost everyone’s attention is to a religious commune. Although not without reason what dominates are stereotypes.

From other characters I would like to mention Julian Henry Perkins and his loyal dog Bear who have a very important role in the story after they meat Maura.

Most of the chapter are from POV of Maura; the situations and everything else reveals her other characteristic features. The book overall was much more psychologically powerful.

The alternative title for this book – The Killing Place.
