Publisher's Summary

Homicide Detective Max Rupert never fully accepted his wife's death, even when he believed that a reckless hit and run driver was the cause. But when he learns that in fact she was murdered, he devotes himself to hunting down her killers. Most of his life he had thought of himself as a decent man. But now he's so consumed with thoughts of retribution that he questions whether he will take that last step and enact the vengeance he longs for.
On a frozen lake near the US-Canadian border, he wrestles with a decision that could change his life forever, as his hatred threatens to turn him into the kind of person he has spent a career bringing to justice.


What the Critics Say

"Eskens infuses the old this-time-it's-personal trope with raw urgency, righteous indignation, and enough scorching action to melt every trace of the Minnesota snow in his finest hour to date." (Kirkus, Starred Review)

If this was a dead horse - It would have been beat

Finally a conclusion to the wife story - Maybe...

I get that this lady was the love of his life - But 4 years after his wife died - He's still crying like it happened 4 days ago...

Sooooo Dramatic..

I can't believe I listened to the end - At least it ended how it should have.. I'll leave it at that.

OMG! Was this great!!!

I have read 3 of Allen Eskens books starting with "The life you Bury" which was very unique and very well done. But...these last two with Detective Max Rupert were truly a really good very involving read. The decisions the man had to make and the questioning were so well done, the reader was excellent in his delivery and I could simply not put it down. I wanted to find out who and what and mostly why. All were answered. And , to top it off, the ending was truly good. Keep up the good work Mr. Eskins and Mr. Bray. You have a fan forever!!!
