They call it The Heartland Child Murders.
Everyone else calls it a nightmare. Locked doors don't stop him. He leaves no trace behind. He only takes little girls.
His nickname... The Iceman.
A deranged serial killer roams wintry rural Nebraska with a demented purpose no one can fathom. Special Agent EMMA KANE, a former DC cop and damaged goods now with the FBI, is assigned to babysit burnt-out profiler JACOB THORNE, once the best in the business but now said to have lost his edge, as they both fly to Nebraska to catch this maniac.
Thorne is erratic, abrasive and unpredictably brilliant, but what he and Kane find in the heartland is much more than anyone bargained for, especially when the Iceman challenges them personally.
The clock is ticking and a little girl's life is on the line.
And maybe even more with that, once they find out what he's really up to.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
This book has frank and profane adult language within... this is often how many a law enforcement officer speaks, in my experience. Not all, but many, very many.
The book also has violence and adult situations, but the profanity is the only thing that some folks have been noting, for some odd reason, so I'm warning you now that it has profanity.
I totally understand that not everyone wants to read curse words. However, to write a book like this without a cop cursing would not, in my mind, be authentic.
Therefore, if you can't handle HBO-style language, (a la THE WIRE, etc.) this book is not for you.
If fictional bad language bothers you more than the fictional murder of young people, this book is definitely not for you, but I thank you for your time and consideration.
