Publisher's Summary

When Harper and Tolliver are hired to find a missing grandson, they learn that several teenage boys have disappeared from Doraville. Harper soon finds the eight bodies buried in the half-frozen ground, but as she becomes part of the investigation, she learns more than she cares to about the dark mysteries and long-hidden secrets of Doraville: knowledge that could make her the next victim to end up in an ice-cold grave.

Gripping Story, Entertaining Read.

Would you consider the audio edition of An Ice Cold Grave to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version but I would after listening to the audio version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of An Ice Cold Grave?

The moment when she realises who the real murderer is. Chilling! Also the moment when she realises how many boys are dead and how they died.

Any additional comments?

A great read with many surprises. Well read and very entertaining.

I was surprised just how much I enjoyed this.

This is my favorite book from the series. It isn't at all what I expected from a Chalaine Harris novel after reading some of the True Blood short stories, which if I'm honest disappointed me a bit after seeing the TV series. There is nothing flashy or brash about this novel. It is primarily, a very well written detective story which has a great, although very dark plot and held my interest all the way through.

The paranormal element of the story is actually very subtle because the heroines abilities follow the extremely narrow focus of being able to locate bodies in the nearby area and give cause of death. This ability is exploited to its full potential by herself and her stepbrother/manager to provide a living for themselves but causes constant difficulties, particularly with law enforcement who either disbelieve, or do not understand the limitations of Harper's talents.

I was talking with a taxi driver the other day and he complained that they never wrote stories about ordinary people in the movies, they're all high-flying, rich and beautiful. I've noticed that unfortunately this is often the case with paranormal fiction and particularly that aimed at women. Charlaine Harris' novels break through all of this. The hero and heroine come from a mostly trailer park background and deal with a multitude of people, in this case a struggling poorer community, with a few wealthier members who have managed to collectively raise funds for Harper's services and the territorial and conflicted local sheriff.

The characterization in these novels is amazing. You'll end up liking a multitude of people despite their flaws and prejudices. While Harper and her brother have an extremely practical approach to her abilities, which often leads them to be viewed as parasites by others trying to help on the case.

I've already bought all three novels in The Harper Connolly series available on Audible UK. You do need to read them in order to avoid spoilers but although the first book in the series is not available, reading it is not necessary to enjoy the rest. The narration while not quite five star is still really good. I will defiantly be listening to this series again and would really recommend it.

gripping

If you could sum up An Ice Cold Grave in three words, what would they be?

Really enjoyed this book and the performance. Very good characters and well described places and atmosphere.

What was one of the most memorable moments of An Ice Cold Grave?

catching the bad guys

Which character – as performed by Alyssa Bresnahan – was your favourite?

The main character but also the old Psychic lady

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Although there are a lot of books which include these topics, murder, serial killers, police in small towns and the other supernatural stuff. I don't believe there are so many that combine these elements in such a believable and down to earth way. The characters, situations and topics, although extreme are convincing.<br/>Alyssa Bresnahan reads in an understated, clear, rhythmic voice that never jars or distracts from the story. Great combination
