Rizzoli and Isles #8.
He watches . . .
Something terrible has happened in the snowbound village of Kingdom Come, Wyoming. Twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. The people who lived in them appear to have vanished, seemingly into thin air.
He waits . . .
Maura Isles is driving through the area with a group of friends when they find themselves trapped in a snowstorm. They stumble into the abandoned village to take shelter. But their nightmare has only just begun.
They disappear . . .
Days later, Jane Rizzoli flies to Wyoming to search for her missing friend. A crashed vehicle has been found with four badly burned bodies still inside. Can one of the corpses be Maura's? Jane's hunt for the truth leads her to Kingdom Come. Where the person who was watching Maura now lies waiting for her . . .

'This is possibly the most bone-chilling story featuring on-going characters Rizzoli and Isles. Gerritsen plays on our fears in exploring what can happen when ordinary people unwittingly trigger extraordinary events.' - Daily Mail.
'As the tension is screwed ever tighter, it's clear that, as ever, Tess Gerritsen has the full measure of the crime genre at her fingertips.' - Barry Forshaw.
'Gory and gripping this is Tess Gerritsen's most bone-chilling story yet in our opinion. Gerritsen’s much-loved series heroines, forensic anthropologist Maura Isles and detective Jane Rizzoli are core to this nail-biting crime mystery. Gerritsen plays on the reader's fears as she dishes out her unputdownable meal of non-stop nightmare in which both Maura Isles and Jane Rizzoli are pushed well beyond where they've been pushed before.' - LoveReading.
'Gruesome, seductive & creepily credible.' - The Times.
'Baby, you are going to be up all night' - Stephen King.
