Still reeling from a personal tragedy, investigative journalist Rooker Lindström finds a grim hideaway from the world. It’s the dilapidated cabin on Minnesota’s Deer Lake bequeathed to him by his late father—one of the most notorious serial killers in the state. If the walls of this murder house could talk, they’d scream.

Detective Tess Harlow needs something from Rooker only he can provide: a window into the mind of a murderer. A copycat is on the prowl, following in the footsteps of Rooker’s father. After reluctantly agreeing to take on the role of consultant, Rooker makes a chilling discovery. Every victim—five and counting—is a depraved taunt meant only for him. Rooker is not just tracking a killer playing sick games. In this brutal Minnesota winter, Rooker is confronting his past.

Maybe working with Tess is Rooker’s last chance at redemption. But to outrun his father’s legacy, he must follow a darker path still to come.

Detective Tess Harlow heads of a team of detectives trying to catch the serial killer who has been murdering women in her Minnesota town. Every lead has been a dead end and they are threatening to take away her rank, so she resorts to her last hope: Rooker Lindstrom, a former investigative journalist whose father had been a notorious serial killer and that he turned in. This killer is a copycat following in the footsteps of Rooker’s father.

Pete Zacharias has given his readers a dark tale, using a brutal Minnesota winter as background for a frightening, tense story. If you need a chill during the hot summer months, this novel will do it for you.

I gave The Man Burned by Winter 5 sheep.
