Publisher's Summary

Two backcountry skiers find the body of a young woman embedded in the ice of a remote mountain creek. All through the night police work with arc lights and chainsaws to prise her out. Identifying her doesn't take so long.

Abbie Cooper is wanted for murder and her picture is on law enforcement computers all across America. But how did she die? And what was the trail of events that led this golden child of a loving family so tragically astray?

The Divide Brilliant.

loved it could not stop listening to the book Nicholas Evans has a way in which you become so invested in the story it becomes impossible to stop reading/listening have loved Nicholas Evans ever since the horse whisperer have read every one of his books and have been enthralled by the way that he takes you there as if you were the character yourself even my two younger boys ( both under twelve) couldn't believe that I had finished it so quickly. so thankyou Nicholas Evans for once again giving your readers another magnificent book. will listen/read it again soon but now have the horse whisperer, the loop and smoke jumpers now to listen/read again as I have all ready read these books hard copies so much that they have almost fell apart. didn't think much of the narrator myself but he did keep me enthralled. would love to read more books by Nicholas Evans have read them all I'm talking about all new books.

Well worth it!

I really like this author. He tells a great story. Really gets you deep into characters of the book. Although I prefer different narrators for different characters this narrator does a good job of it. After listening to this novel I immediately went to find another by the same author.

Great book

I have always liked Nicholas Evans books but haven't read one for a while. This was up to his usual high standard and I will re visit his previous novels having enjoyed The Divide so much. His ability to span the lows and depths of human emotion is brilliant. It is a shame he hasn't written more novels.
