The fans of the Rizzoli/Isles series will not be disappointed by this book. I liked all the books in the series but in my opinion this one is the most suspenseful. The tension starts building almost from the very beginning until a sense of dread becomes nearly overwhelming. Gerritsen is great at creating an eerie environment and keeping her readers deeply invested in the story. I can honestly say that there wasn't a single boring page in the entire book.
"Ice Cold" offers us yet another fascinating journey into the lives of its unique main characters. We see Maura Isles in the grip of a personal crisis. It leads her to participate in an adventure that at first seems simply out of character but eventually turns out to be extremely dangerous. We follow Jane Rizzoli as she searches desperately for her missing friend.Read more ›
So, moving along and kind of waiting for the big shoe to drop, when about 2/3 of the way in, we get a twist that changed everything, and I felt like I was starting all over again. Then we are almost to the end, and we get another completely different story that was actually pretty interesting. By this time though, I didn't want to get involved in another story that I could tell the author wasn't going to fully develop. I wound up feeling pretty frustrated. The book is so unevenly plotted it's hard to feel that intensity that is usually present in Ms. Gerritsen's novels. There were parts I think she could have really ran with, but were just treated as mere afterthoughts, and then there were some characters and plot lines that were given so much attention, to then just be dropped in a manner that was incredibly unsatisfying.
I love these characters. I didn't recognize much in Maura that was familiar from previous novels, but it was nice to see Jane and Gabriel again. We only get a brief glimpse of their life with toddler, but it was a funny one. I will be eager to see the next one in this series in the hopes that the author gets back to the level of intensity that is her norm. This one was just ho hum.
"Ice Cold" is an action-packed thrill ride with intriguing characters we care about. Maura is courageous but realistic; she knows that if she is not rescued soon, she will probably die in this frozen wilderness. Jane and her husband, Gabriel Dean, an ex-Marine and an FBI agent, are determined to find their friend, but they will face obstacles more formidable than the horrendous weather. Meanwhile, Daniel is wracked with guilt over the way he has treated the woman he loves, especially when he realizes that he may never see her again.
This is a story about survival under extreme conditions, the limits of romantic love, and the dangers of bending one's will to a charismatic cult leader. Jeremiah Goode has created a sect with hundreds of followers who slavishly adhere to his decrees, some of which are rather repellant.Read more ›
