The setup is tense: a husband, wife, and daughter go on a camping trip where the wife, suffering from some "monster" in her past, needs to face her fear and challenge it in the place where it began. With such emotional baggage hurting and hampering their marriage, the husband and wife fight, and when the daughter comes across her father alone, angrily chopping wood, and tries to speak to him, angry words and a misplaced swipe of the axe send the daughter racing off into the woods - and she is lost.
While starting as a "Will the child survive?" story, "Cold Fear" quickly moves into full thriller status when the "monster" in the wife's past reclaims centre stage, and the police place blame in the wrong direction.
The return of characters from "If Angels Fall" is also a big thumbs-up, and leaves one quite satisfied with the continuity. The book is a nail-biter in places, keeping you guessing and worried for the characters, and as the pace continues to speed up, you'll find yourself making excuses to go find a quiet spot to read.
Give this one a read, you won't regret it!
There were also lots of spelling and grammatical errors.
Several hours pass before Emily and Doug realize that Paige is lost. A search proves futile and the next morning he races for help. The National parks Service, the FBI, and surprisingly the San Francisco police join forces. The latter is invited because the national law enforcement officials think foul play is involved with the missing girl. As the window of safety ticks a way, a "monster" from Emily's past when she grew up near here is also hunting Paige.
COLD FEAR is a frightening tale that will chill the audience as the clock to save Paige's life seems much faster than normal to her parents and to the reader. The prime story line is superb though the addition of Emily's "monster" and a domestic incident back home detracts from a powerful gut wrenching thriller that seems very real because the key players feel genuine. The audience will care what happens to Paige because Rick Mofina makes her feel like everyone's precious child. This is a strong story that hooks the reader from the start.
There is another plot involving a death row inmate in the prison in Montana. Eventually it ties in with the above plot.
As my title states, I liked the plot, but here are my problems:
1. There must be at least 100 typos, probably a lot more. It is as if the author's editing consisted solely of a spellchecker. The words are real words, but they make no sense. The author needs an editor or proofreader.
2. There are far too many characters. It is hard to keep them straight. There are reporters, various FBI agents, an investigator brought in from San Francisco, Search and Rescue teams, National Park personnel. I got a good feel for the parents and the girl, but there were too many law personnel to keep them straight. I'd keep having to go back to find out who the various names belonged to. Then there were family members of all these people.
3. There is no main narrator. There are many narrators: the mother, the father, the girl, the inmate, a lawyer, reporters, law enforcement agents, photographers, politicians, etc.
4. There are events that really strain credulity. I won't go into them, as I don't want to include spoilers.
