Imagine pitting your wits against a killer who kills without a second thought.
Imagine that this killer is a sociopath skilled at presenting herself as a model citizen.
Now, imagine that this killer is your new best friend.
You’ve now put yourself in the shoes of Cassidy Shaw, television crime reporter and one of the three protagonists in this new work by Wiehl (check out my review for her previous book here). Cassidy’s two friends–FBI agent Nicole Hedges and federal prosecutor Allison Pierce–round out the trio. After reuniting at a high school reunion, the three friends realize their common interest in crime and justice and pool their talents and resources.
The book isn’t so much a whodunit as a howendit. We know who the killer is from the beginning (before she kills anyone, actually). Problem is, we know Cassidy has began a friendship with her, and that Nicole’s nine-year-old takes private swim lessons from her. So therein lies the tension: when will the sociopath begin to threaten our heroines?
I quite enjoyed Heart of Ice. It has its thrills and suspense, but it’s also heavy on drama, always leaning more on the dynamics between the three friends and their personal struggles than the body count.
