While camping with her family in Montana's Glacier National Park, a 10-year-old girl disappears. As a multi-agency task force launches a massive search, the little girl fights to survive in the wilderness while her mother enters her own life-and-death race to rescue her child. But investigators are growing suspicious. The nation is gripped by the drama. Time is running out because someone else who knows a dark secret from the past wants to find her daughter, too.
Cold fear by Rick Molina was a fun read. It takes you into the wilderness of the mountains in Montana. With multiple points of view you are constantly jumping around the book .
With two similar crimes crashing into each other 22 years later, Doug & Emily Baker are thrust into the middle of politics, pressure, passion, panicking, and more.
Ten year old Paige Baker is a city kid from San Francisco. Her parents have been fighting and to try to help Emily put some of her hidden past to rest she returns to her child hood home . Things don't go as planned and while Emily and her husband Doug try to stop their marriage from fracturing they get dragged into a whirlwind of suspicion when Paige goes missing with her Beagle Kobee.
There are so many different angles. Point of views from the police, the media, the family, a man on death row. Even a child lost in the woods.
I enjoyed this book. It's been a long time since I've read and enjoyed a book where all the monsters where human. Even the good guys were flesh and blood.
I gave this book 3 1/2 stars and would defiantly read another book by Mr. Molina. This book is geared towards adults. If you enjoy politics, police, and suspense all around check out Cold Fear. For more reviews check out http://firstname.lastname@example.org
