    Private Detective Nils Shapiro gets a call from his good friend, Detective Anders Ellegaard to take a look at a murder scene with him. Maggie Somerfield was found dead in her bedroom, covered with the dust from hundreds of emptied vacuum cleaner bags. The dust continues all through the house. Since any and all DNA has been compromised, the cops and Nils “assume” that Maggie knew her killer. But without any clues or leads, this may become a cold cold case. I only received a short preview of this book. This is the debut book of this author and one that needs to be watched. The characters, even in a very short period of time, are well defined. Nils has a rough sense of humor, and can be a bit sarcastic as needs be, but he is totally likeable. Ellegaard is more down to earth, maybe because he has a wife and three young children. These guys make wonderful series characters. Set in winter in Minnesota, the author has a wonderful descriptive way of writing. And although I am in Arizona, I felt a yearning to get up and put a pair of socks on my feet. The story premise is a good one. There’s nothing quite like a well-written crime thriller. This is one book I will definitely be looking for . I was given just enough to whet my appetite .. now I want the full course. Many thanks to the author / Macmillan-Tor/Forge / Netgalley for the advanced digital preview copy. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
