Two years after losing her hearing, a nurse discovers the corpse of a co-worker in the woods near her Minnesota cabin -- and realizes her life is in jeopardy.

Predictable but still enjoyed the fast-paced action.

Great thriller! Fast paced, well-written, highly developed characters, atmospheric, and an interesting plot. A unique story in that the main character, Amelia, is deaf - having lost her hearing in a hit-and-run accident.

I thought the author did a great job in effectively portraying what it'd be like to be deaf in different stressful situations. I learnt something new about deafness. At first I thought the author had made a big mistake in that Amelia drove a Jeep. I had always assumed (incorrectly) that deaf people are not allowed to drive. However, it appears that being deaf has no negative impacts on a person's ability to operate a vehicle. In fact, they can drive quite safely through using special devices that notify them of car horns, emergency vehicles, etc.

Lots of possible suspects also made for an interesting read. Great ending and highly recommended!
