Ice Cold, by Tess Gerritson

This Gerritson book really grabbed me! Another Rizzoli and Isles book this one has some refreshing plot twists that fully engaged me.

Set in Jackson, Wyoming the book includes attention to the dangers of charismatic "cult" leaders and dips into issues surrounding polygamist communities. Maura is off on her own and ends up with a much greater adventure than she had ever planned. I found the foolish behaviors of tourists in the Rockies very realistic. I can only hope that it helps make visitors during ski season a little more winter weather aware.

Additionally, it paints a sympathetic portrait of survivalists and young adults males who are shunned by their fundamentalist religious communities.
