'Jesse Parker, ex-Denver police detective, has returned to his hometown of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, to spend the winter working the ski patrol and taking it easy. But he is reluctantly dragged back into a world of violence and murder when a serial killer begins a killing spree in the sleepy ski town.
'The town's popular sheriff, Lee Torrens, asks Jesse to help her out with the investigation as the killer continues to stalk the town, leaving little clue as to his motive. Are the murders random acts of a psychopath, or a cold, calculated escalation of terror?
'As the two friends work together, the embers of an old union reignite, but the growing notoriety of the Silver Bullet Killer brings complications that will shake the foundations of the small town. No-one is safe.' (Publisher's blurb)
'When guests at a ski lodge in Utah are taken hostage by a group of mercenaries, Jesse Parker, who has left Steamboat Springs to try to salvage his career after a horrific skiing accident, discovers he's in the right place at the right time.
'With a high-profile senator one of the hostages, the White House and FBI are notified and Special Agent Denton Colby is sent to Utah to negotiate the ransom with the assassins. But the head of the hostage-takers is playing a dangerous game. As his demands become more erratic, and half the hostages are killed, Colby suspects that money may not be the only thing they're after.
'Jesse has remained undetected by the captors and, with the help of a female ex-Marine, is able to formulate a plan that might just stop these murderous terrorists in their tracks...' (From the publisher's website.)
