Tess Gerritsen, another fantastic author, whose work I have read in the past and will definitely be reviewing in the not too distant future.
Following the release of her latest book ‘The Killing Place’, hardcover edition, in June 2010, Tess will be visiting from the USA. She has two dates booked, at Waterstones in Manchester and Newcastle, in August 2010, where she will be holding a talk and signing copies of the book.
This is a chargeable event, but the money will be refunded against a purchase of the book, on the night. For further details, visit the Waterstones site.
Details of five other UK tour dates are available from Tess’s website.
‘The Killing Place’ will not be available in paperback, until 2011, although advance ordering is available from Amazon.
This book was released in the USA, with the title ‘Ice Cold’
In Wyoming for a medical conference, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip. But when their SUV stalls on a snow-choked mountain road, they’re stranded with no help in sight.
As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in the remote village of Kingdom Come, where twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Something terrible has happened in Kingdom Come: Meals sit untouched on tables, cars are still parked in garages. The town’s previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the cold darkness – someone who is watching Maura and her friends.
Days later, Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli receives the grim news that Maura’s charred body has been found in a mountain ravine. Shocked and grieving, Jane is determined to learn what happened to her friend. The investigation plunges Jane into the twisted history of Kingdom Come, where a gruesome discovery lies buried beneath the snow. As horrifying revelations come to light, Jane closes in on an enemy both powerful and merciless – and the chilling truth about Maura’s fate.
