I really enjoyed this novel by first time author Christine Carbo. From the first page the book felt comfortable, like the welcoming pages of a favorite author’s work. Carbo provides the reader with a wonderfully detailed setting in Montana’s Glacier National Park. She also sets up a haunting backstory for the main character to be tortured with while investigating what is a truly heinous murder.
Carbo’s writing is clean, her descriptions vivid, her characters sharp, and her pacing will keep readers in suspense. This book has all the makings of a masterpiece. If it falls slightly short of perfection, one need only to remember that this is the author’s first book, and with that said, I can’t wait for the release of her next novel, “Mortal Fall”. Carbo is a promising new talent on the mystery/suspense scene and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us readers. Five Stars!
