You had better wrap up warm for the blurb:. Dan Carter it looks like a tragic accident rather than the work of a murderer.
Cold as Ice
But D. Ebony Willis is not so sure. Meanwhile cosmetics saleswoman Tracy Collins receives a phonecall. But when Danielle suddenly disappears, Tracy is plunged into the middle of a living nightmare. With the discovery of another body, it becomes clear that Danielle is in grave danger.
All at the same time, most probably. Cold As Ice is as good a way of getting into the swing of things as any. Weeks provides a good-sized wedge of narrative, a number of dodgy suspects, some grotesque imagery, and an interesting set of investigators. I really like the team of investigators — Willis, Carter, Robbo an the rest — and Weeks juggles them all well. Instead, the early pages are very much told from the point-of-view of a middle-aged woman, Tracy Collins, who unexpectedly finds herself caught up in the investigation.
Tracy — all hair and make-up — is a lovely character, and her attempts to make contact with the daughter she gave away when she was just fifteen are touching. Sadly, Tracy takes a backseat in the second half when Cold As Ice becomes more procedural.
Instead, Willis shakes up the narrative by sending her damaged protagonist Willis undercover. The climax descends into some commonplace melodramatic business. Thriller tip: The ticking clock. When Danielle goes missing the team race against time to find her before she turns up dead.
