Ashley is a young woman broken by choices - some her own, some not. Looking to escape the haunting grip of her past, she embarks on a several-state winter road trip only to pass a sight that changes her life completely: jutting from a dirty snow bank, a small human hand holds its palm up to the sky. Driven by an uncharacteristic need for redemption, Ashley returns to investigate. There, she encounters a seemingly helpful, disturbed local man and the county sheriff. It isn't until the sheriff begins to question Ashley that the terror of her situation dawns: the body in the snow isn't a snowplow accident, but a murder victim, and by coming back to investigate, Ashley has placed herself directly in the serial killer's path. As the next 22 hours unfold, Ashley is confronted with a terrible choice: take advantage of her one chance for escape or attempt rescue of the killer's last remaining victim, possibly sacrificing herself in the process. Only by embracing the ghosts of her past will Ashley survive her descent into the disturbing madness of the freezing season.

Nail biting thriller
This is one of the best audible thrillers I've listened to in a long time. It was gripping from the very start and had me on the edge of my seat until the end. I was so engaged I found myself screaming at the victim with "No don't do that, don't go there." I longed for the finale but also didn't want it to end. The author did a brilliant job of developing the characters and the scene. My mind's eye could visualize every step.
At first I was annoyed by the decisions of the main character but once I understand her personality it made perfect sense.
The narration was great. Jennie Lin has a melodic voice that easily drew me into each character.
Several moments but they would be spoilers.
Beware this book is intense
