Publisher's Summary

Once, her heart was empty. Now it's filled with ice....

Ellen's therapist told her to forget the past, but the life she’s left with is boring. All she wants is to be happy and normal, but the approaching long, bleak nights of winter loom heavy before her, especially as she'll be alone.

But when the secrets her mother put in place to protect her are exposed, Ellen learns the frightening truth. Her history is darker than she imagined. She's not who she thinks she is, and the real her is a very different person to the one whom others have mistreated and exploited.

If there's hope of a future, Ellen must find answers about the past, and the new Ellen is less forgiving. This winter, there will be more than just discontent, and DI Barton will struggle in his hardest case to date.

How can he find the truth when all the victims and witnesses are dead?

Ross Greenwood writes gritty, heart-pounding thrillers, with twists aplenty and unforgettable endings. Perfect for fans of Mark Billingham and Stuart MacBride.

Brilliant series

Ross Greenwood is a fantastic story teller. He has not only created a core set of likeable characters but also created ‘criminal’ characters who I find I have so much empathy for. Very clever. David Thorpe is a brilliant narrator who is a good match for the author’s stories. I

A degree of empathy with the 'villain'!

Another engrossing story of a murderer with a reason, if that ever can be the case?
And also a recurring theme from Greenwood of a hereditary propensity for episodic violence, nicely highlighted in the Epilogue and final sentence of the book.
Ellen, the Ice Killer, has been badly dealt with by a succession of men and over a 20 yr period progressively takes her revenge, but culminating in a final murder of a more innocent party guilty only of collusion which is just one step too far, and for which finally she is dealt her just deserts.
DI Barton and team continue to be well developed.
Once again, the denouement is a bit of a bloodbath.
Continues to be an excellent series.

Another epic novel

Great narrator! He really tells the story well and switches between characters with ease. Gripping story with an interesting moral dilemma bringing sympathy for the killer. I’m really enjoying these books!
