Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Deputy Shelby Lake was abandoned as a baby, saved by a stranger who found her in the freezing cold. Now, years later, a young boy is missing - and Shelby is the one who must rescue a child. The only evidence of what happened to 10-year-old Jeremiah Sloan is a bicycle left behind on a lonely road. After a desperate search fails to locate him, the close bonds of Shelby's hometown begin to fray under the weight of accusations and suspicion. Everyone around her is keeping secrets. Her adoptive father, her best friend, her best friend's young daughter - they all have something to hide. Even Shelby is concealing a mistake that could jeopardize her career and her future. Unearthing the lies of the people in Jeremiah's life doesn't get the police and the FBI any closer to finding him. As time passes and the case grows cold, Shelby worries that the mystery will stay buried forever under the deep, deep snow. But even the deepest snow melts in the spring. When a tantalizing clue finally comes to light, Shelby must confront the darkest lie of all. Exposing the truth about Jeremiah will leave no one's life untouched - including her own."--Publisher description.

    From the author of the Jonathan Stride mystery series comes a crisply written story about a small-town sheriff's deputy whose investigation of a missing-person case exposes lies and secrets about people she thought she knew. Shelby Lake, the star of the show, is a terrific character: abandoned at birth, raised by the town sheriff (who has recently begun displaying early signs of dementia), and possessing a complicated history with a man who might have murdered his wife, she's a tough, compassionate woman who absolutely will not be distracted from her search for the truth. Freeman takes a bit of a risk by having the story play out over several years (there is a significant time jump roughly midway through the book), but it pays off, the time span adding to the dramatic weight of the mystery and of Shelby's own story. The book was released in 2019 as an Audible Original, and this print edition should bring the novel a new and very enthusiastic audience. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
