Since he last set foot in Harper, Minnesota, Jake's whole life has changed beyond recognition, but the place seems just as he left it. Small-town politics and gossip rule, and his return is big news.
When a body is discovered at the frozen Hangman Falls, Jake is beset by a snowstorm of anger and revenge. Hounded by grudges and feared by the townsfolk, Jake is determined to uncover the truth behind his girlfriend's disappearance. But he still has enemies in town and they have other plans for him.
Betrayed at every turn and unsure whom to trust, Jake's quest for the truth rekindles old rivalries and rouses ghosts that should never have been disturbed. He wants above all to find the peace of mind that has so long eluded him. But no man can escape his past.

Totally twisted tale!

Scott Merriman did a fantastic job with all the characters.
Any additional comments?
This is such a great twisted story. What makes it so great you might ask? Well, Jake Olsen returns home after getting out if prison and is doing an investigative story about the disappearance of his girlfriend who is presumed murdered by him (which is why he went to prison). His father is in the hospital comatose, his old wannabe girlfriend/friend is a cop, her father is the ex chief of police, she's married to another officer who believes him guilty and then there's the girl's father who is hellbent on killing him because he also believes Jake is guilty. It doesn't take long and bodies start to pile up. Some have been deceased for years some recent. Some relationships are revealed that even Jake didn't know about or doesn't remember. Some people have just gone missing or run away or so that's what the listener is lead to believe. Well, hold on to your seat because nothing you've been led to believe in the beginning is quite accurate. There are pieces missing and when those blanks get filled in the whole story changes and boy does it change. I would love to tell but won't spoil this for anyone.
I Highly Recommend this book!

Ran off the rails
This book had so much promise - a good central mystery, well written protagonist, and pretty strong supporting cast (although some were a bit one dimensionally nasty). Through most of the story I was well invested in Jake’s quest to find out what had happened to his girlfriend. I had my suspicions and they turned out to be right, but still it was handled well enough to keep me engaged and rooting for Jake. The usual need to suspend disbelief in suspense stories was still within reason. It was the end of the story when the author kind of went over the top. Two revelations came to light that were “give me a break” moments that ultimately broke the spell. If he had stopped with the first revelation I could have shrugged and gone along with it. But tossing in the second twist just finally jumped the shark and I closed the book disappointed.

A riveting storyline!!
I could not tear myself away from the story, although I usually listen only when driving in car!! So many twists and turns, it takes ones breath away. And then the full extent of the horror unfolds during the last pages.
Exciting, horrific and exhilarating all at once.

This book was really great. The descriptive writing gave this thriller punch!
The story was imaginative and unusual through twists and turns. I ordered it with audio track and the reader was exceptional. His voice changes and dramatic presentation made this even more of a drama I could not stop listening to. I didn't want it to end.
Talking about the end... It completed a very rounded story and I will not spoil its conclusion by telling you the epilogue. Wonderful!!
I will get more by this talented author with audio track read by this talented reader too.
