A Cold Treachery
Mass Market  Mass Market  
December, 1919: Deep in England's frozen Lake District, constables discover a scene of unimaginable carnage: the bodies of five family members splayed across a bloodied cottage kitchen.

Even as a search is mounted in the frigid, empty countryside for the youngest boy, apparently missing from the dreadful scene, a call goes out to Scotland Yard for immediate assistance, and Inspector Ian Rutledge is pulled from a court case and sent driving north through the night.

But there is no sign of the missing boy--or of any strangers who might have committed such a terrible crime. As Rutledge wends his way through a tangle of jealous relatives and family secrets, he will discover more reasons for murder than the people of this bleak hamlet are willing to reveal--and somewhere amidst the peaks and valleys of Armandale lurks a murderer who considers so much spilt blood the least of his revenge.
