In New York Times bestseller Allison Brennan’s Cold as Ice, FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid must get into the head of a psychopath to save her family, and herself
Two years ago, FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid put psychopath Elise Hansen Hunt in juvenile detention for her role in an organized crime syndicate. Now eighteen, Elise has been released with a clean slate, and plans to take her revenge by making Lucy’s life hell. The plot begins with Lucy’s husband Sean Rogan, who has been arrested for a murder he most certainly did not commit.
Lucy is determined to prove Sean’s innocence, but is warned off the case by her boss. As she calls in reinforcements, she learns that Sean’s brother Kane is missing in Mexico, her partner Nate Dunning has been arrested for possession of cocaine, and her friend Brad Donnelly has been kidnapped outside DEA headquarters. Lucy realizes that Elise doesn’t have the resources or patience to execute such a devious plan. Did Elise’s father orchestrate everything from prison? Or is there someone even more calculating seeking revenge on Lucy by hurting the people she loves?
One thing is certain: if Lucy doesn’t find the answers fast, Sean will die.
Oh boy, I am a huge Allison Brennan fan and even bigger Lucy Kincaid fan. This book is part of a series but stands entirely alone. Cold as Ice is a complex story. There are a lot of characters with intertwining storylines, yet it was easy to follow and intriguing to read. I knew that Lucy would be able to prove Sean, her husband, innocent but I also knew it would not be easy. I loved seeing Lucy and Sean’s friends come to support them even though they knew that by doing so it would be putting them in dangers path.
Cold as Ice is a thriller of a book that brought back many characters from Allison Kincaid’s past books. The suspense kept me holding my breathe until I reached the end. I had so much hope in how the story would turn out and was not disappointed in the twists and turns the story took. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading.
