In an intense, emotional mystery that spans a decade in the life of a small town, best-selling author Brian Freeman brings us an unforgettable heroine who discovers that the dead may sometimes be easier to rescue than the living.
Deputy Shelby Lake was abandoned as a baby, saved by a stranger who found her in the freezing cold. Now, years later, a young boy is missing - and Shelby is the one who must rescue a child.
The only evidence of what happened to 10-year-old Jeremiah Sloan is a bicycle left behind on a lonely road. After a desperate search fails to locate him, the close bonds of Shelby’s hometown begin to fray under the weight of accusations and suspicion. Everyone around her is keeping secrets. Her adoptive father, her best friend, her best friend’s young daughter - they all have something to hide. Even Shelby is concealing a mistake that could jeopardize her career and her future.
Unearthing the lies of the people in Jeremiah’s life doesn’t get the police and the FBI any closer to finding him. As time passes and the case grows cold, Shelby worries that the mystery will stay buried forever under the deep, deep snow. But even the deepest snow melts in the spring.
When a tantalizing clue finally comes to light, Shelby must confront the darkest lie of all. Exposing the truth about Jeremiah will leave no one’s life untouched - including her own.

I loved the artwork - and I've seen this author on Twitter, and I decided to take a chance and I am REALLY GLAD I DID!
Not many books can get me to turn off the television these days, but at the end of every chapter I just wanted more. I wanted to find out what happened to the missing child in the novel, but I didn't want it to end because I was so happy reading something that blended mystery, nostalgia and amazing characterization. I hope that the author writes more novels with Shelby Lake. All I know is that I am a Freeman fan for life.
I have since read Immoral, the first of the Jon Stride series, also written by Freeman. I highly recommend that first book over this, although in both books the endings were preposterous, esp in this book - will get to the endings later.
The thing that annoyed me most was Freeman’s calling the Superior National Forest “the national forest.” I am from MN and have spent half my life up north and NO ONE would ever call that area the national forest. Freeman does it constantly! “We were just driving through the national forest when we saw...”
Where is the editor?
It’s like calling California “Cali” or calling Minnesota “Minnie.” No one does that except clueless outsiders!!
“Adam (one of the cops) was at the end of the counter of the Nowhere cafe with a pot of coffee and 4 aspirins, a sure sign of a hangover.” Really?? Who has an entire pot of coffee to himself? Who takes 4 aspirin for a hangover, and if he’s hungover, why hasn’t he taken the aspirin already?? What’s he waiting for? Most people I know who are hungover take aspirin right when they wake up, then chug tons of water to dilute the effects of the alcohol, not coffee which just makes you more jittery.
There were other problems:
The FBI lead detective, Reed was totally credible except he had a goatee??? Really??
The FBI is squeaky clean. No way would they allow that!
Another problem: the two bad guys in the town were “identical twins” yet one was kicking the other’s butt in one on one hoops and was far smarter and more clever. Really. Has the author ever met real identical twins? He should have just had them as brothers, one older and wiser, and the other trying to keep up.
Also, an F-150 is not a “big pick up.” It is a standard everyday truck you see all
the time, and it is merely a half ton PU, the smallest of that model Ford manufactures.
He also constantly calls the squad cars “cruisers!” Lol!!! (Roll my eyes). Was this written by a 12 year old? Who calls cop cars cruisers??
We’re supposed to believe an elderly dementia patient escaped from his facility, took a bus into town, stole the white F-150 parked on the side of the road, then drove it’40 miles, then just happen to spot the “missing” 10 year old (main plot of
the book) on the side of the road on his bicycle,, persuade the kid to hop in his truck and take him miles away to the abandoned resort so the kid could have fun playing with his shuttlecock and cairn stones!!??
Then it gets worse!! Adam, the hungover cop investigating the case, decides to take the missing kid he found a few days later at the resort back home and become a hero. That part was good cuz no one suspected him, at least not me. But during a terrible rainstorm, he puts the kid on the back of his motorcycle, drives off and then slips on the wet and slippery road, presumably crashes. killing the kid, then gets back on the motorcycle after burying the kid, takes his motorcycle and somehow gets it into the bed of the F-150, drives it 40 miles away where he abandons the pick up, somehow gets the motorcycle back out of the back of the truck and drives safely back home where no one has any idea anything happened .... hmmmm, the kid was killed, yet there is no evidence Adam was hurt at all, and no evidence the bike wasn’t wrecked at all and he was somehow able to get the motorcycle on and off the back of the truck by himself???
Don’t get me wrong - this was a very entertaining read, but where was the editor?

This book is a stand alone story ,with warm characters leading a chilling mystery,I love how Brian always fills stories out and leaves you wanting more ,but he doesn’t keep retelling you things like some authors, his books are never dull or page skippers .
