A killer plays cat and mouse with a young widow against the snowy backdrop of an Alaskan winter.
Branded a black widow after the suspicious death of her millionaire husband, Sarah Palmer flees Seattle for Anchorage. But the peace and quiet she hoped to enjoy in her hometown is soon shattered: The killer is murdering Sarah look-alikes on the 14th of each month, taunting Sarah with a valentine of evidence. After her experiences in Seattle, Sarah is slow to go to the police. When she finally does, she finds Detective Steven Quaid, who is called on to protect the beautiful widow from a stalker intent on her destruction. Steven is not entirely sure she is not behind the scheme herself, and before long Sarah has him wound up tighter than barbed wire. Is Sarah a victim or a very skilled manipulator?
With a killer on the loose and a climbing body count, Steven can't afford to hedge his bets - or his life.

Thrilling and Engaging Thriller
This one was really good! At the start, you really wanted to like the main character, but the facts appeared to be stacked against her! There were so many twists and turns, that no sooner had you clarified your missions and thoughts of the main character and the other characters, everything was different! But the twists and changes did not appear contrived and unnatural. It's all a very involved and complicated story, and not only did the author keep the reader gassing, but the author kept the reader interested and anxious and ready to hear the end – even when the end was still three hours away. But all three of those hours worth it and I loved the book :-)
And it's the first of, so far, three with the same detective. I'm looking forward to more!
