Summary (From the publisher):

On a frigid winter night, Harvey Ellis is trapped on a coastal road-stranded by a blizzard in a line of eight cars. Within a few hours, he is dead, viciously stabbed at the wheel of his truck.

The crime seems impossible: How could the killer have struck without being seen, and without leaving a single footprint in the snow? To make matters worse for Peter Shaw-the youngest Detective Inspector on the force-and George Valentine, his veteran, hard-as-nails partner, the crime scene is melting, and the body count is rising as suspects are targeted one by one.

The case would be tense enough for the new partners even if Valentine hadn't previously worked with another Detective Shaw, Peter's father, on the botched case of a child murder that ended his career. Had the old partners, as the judge implied, really faked evidence against the suspect, Bobby Mosse? And was Mosse, as Valentine still insists, so clearly guilty that the case iw worth reopening twelve years later?
