Title: Cold Girl
Author: R.M. Greenaway
Stars :4 out of 5
This is a B. C. Blues crime novel. I found the story line to be very solid and enjoyed reading the book. The story is told from the viewpoint of several of the characters based on what they are doing at the time. While I enjoyed the book I felt more background information on some of the individuals (Constable Dion as a prime example) would have made the story line much stronger. I gave the book a four star rating and would have given it a five star rating if it had contained the background backup. I received this ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
A popular rockabilly singer has vanished in the snowbound Hazeltons of northern B.C. Lead RCMP investigator David Leith and his team work through the possibilities: has she been snatched by the so-called Pickup Killer, or does the answer lie here in the community, somewhere among her reticent fans and friends? Leith has much to contend with: rough terrain and punishing weather, motel-living and wily witnesses. The local police force is tiny but headstrong, and one young constable seems more hindrance than help -- until he wanders straight into the heart of the matter. The urgency ramps up as one missing woman becomes two, the second barely a ghost passing through. Suspects multiply, but only at the bitter end does Leith discover who is the coldest girl of all.
