A series of murders are taking place in various parts of the United States. They do not seem to be related in any way. However, rookie Agent Tess Mallory was a Technical Analyst in the Boston FBI office assigned the task of looking at old files and seeing to see if she could find some new lead to follow. She had to learn to get along with the other agents and to make it seem like they found the new lead in their own files rather than her pointing it out to them. While doing this task, she also began to investigate The Reynolds file to see what would happen if she applied her ideas to it. She writes up a report showing some patterning which seems to make cases which do not seem to be related go together. Because of this report, she is drawn into a special section of the FBI to go as far as she could with her investigation of the Reynolds file. US Senator Jim Reynolds and his wife are brutally murdered with knives and their teenage son, Jeremy, is found with their blood on his body and the knives by his side. Their cuts are identical to those which would have shown up on the bodies of the Gorgon and the Minotaur in Chapter two. How did the case of John Maynor fit with the Reynolds file? Was Jeremy Reynolds acting out a scene from a video game? What caused him to do that? When the same thing seems to be happening in other murders, Tess sets out to find out what is happening. Will she be murdered before she can make the connections? What is going on? Who is in charge? The book will get more complex before it is over.
I ended up loving the book and hating to put it down when I had to. I am looking forward to reading Snow Angel and any others in the series. I loved the character of Morgan Snow. He is extremely complex, being good and evil at the same time. I wish I could give the book 10 stars.
The story begins with Tess, a small town Southern girl who gets accepted by the FBI and is soon recognized for her talent with numbers. This leads to her using this skill to data mine different cases and find commonalities between them. She soon finds some puzzling facts about a high-profile case involving a prominent politician. Nobody in the Bureau wants to give them any credence because the case has already been closed and someone has been found guilty. Soon after bringing these facts to her superiors, she starts having her life threatened, initially by a driver who tried to run her down with his car, an attack she at first thought wasn't aimed at her. Enter Morgan Snow, who has been hired by a mob boss to find out why his son (an elite lobbyist) was killed and by whom. That's when the story really picks up steam. I don't want to ruin this well-written story by revealing any more details, so I'll just say this-download this book and read it! I promise you that you will enjoy every fast paced minute of it.
Kudos to you, Jim Scott, for an excellent out-of-the-gate book! Now, hurry up and write more adventures with Morgan Snow and Tess.
In Snowfall, the bad guys are really bad, and the good guys aren't all that perfect either, but the good people need help from someone familiar with the terrain.
It being a fast read does not mean that it's an easy read. Some of the situations are hard to stomach. Morgan and his prey both find themselves in truly anxious predicaments, ones you don't want to ponder for any longer than is needed to understand why they're happening. We, and the bad guys' victims, are the beneficiaries of the stresses.
In Snowfall, one of those victims is someone we fellas would all love to rescue. We get to spend a good long time with Tess and her loosely self-regulated roommate. I, well I guess Morgan, made every, and I really mean every, effort to protect them.
Suffice it to say that I really enjoyed this book. Don't expect Asimov, Irving or Vonnegut. It's more about the limbic system than the solar system or the human condition. It's not at all a short book and I was sad when I couldn't continue after the last page. Hopefully there will be more pages to come.
