For Will Innis and his daughter, Devlin, the loss was catastrophic. Every day for the past five years, they wonder where she is, if she is—Will’s wife, Devlin’s mother—because Rachael Innis vanished one night during an electrical storm on a lonely desert highway, and suspected of her death, Will took his daughter and fled.

Now, Will and Devlin live under different names in another town, having carved out a new life for themselves as they struggle to maintain some semblance of a family.

When one night, a beautiful, hard-edged FBI agent appears on their doorstep, they fear the worst, but she hasn’t come to arrest Will. “I know you’re innocent,” she tells him, “because Rachael wasn’t the first…or the last.”
Desperate for answers, Will and Devlin embark on a terrifying journey that spans four thousand miles from the desert southwest to the wilds of Alaska, heading unaware into the heart of a nightmare, because the truth is infinitely worse than they ever imagined.

SnowboundIt happened in the blink of an eye, one minute they were a happy family, the next Rachael is missing and Will is the chief suspect. What will their young, fragile daughter do on her own without either of them to watch over her? Will is left with one answer; run, fast and far and avoid putting down roots too firmly. Even the best plans can get waylaid when an FBI agent finds them, in spite of their new identities. Kaylan doesn’t want to arrest Will or take Devlin away, she doesn’t even have the authority to do so. Kaylan wants more, she wants Will’s help in finding both his wife and her sister, because she has a very good idea of what happened to them. Five years have passed, could Rachael still be alive?

How far would you go to find a loved one? What would you do? SNOWBOUND by Blake Crouch tells us just how far people will go to find the ones they love. It tells an almost impossible tale of daring, danger and most likely just plain dumb luck and true grit as two unlikely people uncover and infiltrate a sex trafficking ring in hopes of finding answers, if not the people they seek.

Follow a rapid-fire chase across countries, feel the tension, believe in the unfathomable and the power of love to face danger head on. Sometimes a little too unbelievable, but still a riveting and gut-clenching tale that will raise the hackles of readers, this tale has moments of vicious hatred, dogged determination and some wicked crazy heroics. Sit back and hang on for a ride that will most definitely entertain, and remember, this is fiction, the author has a story to tell and his characters are on a mission they never knew they would be presented with, closure at the least, a nightmare ended at best. Then, ask yourself again, how far would you go to save a loved one, there just might be a little Rambo in all of us.
