Publisher's Summary

The Thriller Award-winning series continues as Detective Jude Fontaine finds a decades-old connection to missing children that will freeze her blood.

A boy’s frozen body is found trapped in the ice of a Minneapolis lake. The horrifying discovery leads Detective Jude Fontaine and her partner, Uriah Ashby, to more bodies in the ice, all of twelve-year-old boys missing for twenty years. 

Then, in one of the worst blizzards the city has ever seen, a four-year-old is abandoned on Jude’s doorstep. The child can’t tell them where he’s from, who his parents are, or how he got there. He doesn’t even know his name. 

But in his unspoken language, Jude reads something horrifying - a connection to the dead boys. Now a four-year-old with no name may be the only key to a twenty-year-old, very cold case.

Amazing Book

The new Jude Fontaine series, I believe is Anne Frasier at her absolute best. She has creates such an intricate character and we are swept away with her trials and tribulations, her mod swings, her tragic history, her fight for justice for the victims, her sense of right and wrong, her caring personality even though she rarely shows it and most of all how she struggled to come back to some semblance of life. This 3rd installment was chilling. It was dark, and mysterious and heart wrenching. We see Jude become someone who does have the emotional capacity to care not only with the Boy but also with Uriah. I truly could not put this book down. However, I am so sad that this is the end of this wonderful character and all of the stories that could be told about her and the rest of the characters that inhabit her world. Thank you Anne Frasier for many amazing stories and the time spent enjoying them. Maybe if enough of your loyal fans tell you how upset they are about Jude not returning, you may change your mind. One can only hope!

Emily Sutton-Smith is one of the best narrators IMHO and she did not disappoint with the delivery of the story.

OUTSTANDING!!!!

This is the third book in the Jude Fontaine series. For anyone who hasn't listened to the previous books I would suggest listening to them before this one if you want the full impact of this story. If you choose to listen to this book first it will work as a stand alone.
The publisher's summary gives a very good overview and you can go with that. It doesn't delve into the real meat of the story. Jude Fontaine is a damaged woman who is also a homicide detective. The victim of a kidnapping and hostage for three years she has a unique understanding and insight to body language of both abused and abuser.
There are two major plots and a few minor plots going on simultaneously. Three will converge in the end for a blockbuster of an ending. There are two dead boys frozen in a lake and a story of human trafficking that is heartbreaking. There is an abandoned four year ill whose somehow involved but with a deeper story yet. There's Jude's nosey neighbor who inserts himself when he's not invited and a partner who is ill but the closest friend she has.
There's a lot going on in this well written book. All coherent, all believable and plausible with fleshed out vivid characters.
Emily Sutton Smith does a wonderful job narrating.
This book and series have my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS.
If you have kindle unlimited this book is FREE to borrow with the kindle edition.

Compelling

I'm really enjoying this series. when a new one comes out I get it and read it immediately. During one section of this book I was relaxed, lying down, thinking I should set the timer to 15 minutes that shuts off my reader. I was leaning towards taking a nap. Then the chapter became so interesting I hopped up to listen intensely and for the next 15 minutes my heart was pounding with anticipation of what was to happen next! The ending of the book was satisfying. I can hardly wait for the next one.

Great ending to the series


I enjoy this author's writing very much. The three books of this series are well written and haunting. Main Characters are evolving throughout the series which gives even more depth to the stories. Highly recommend this for others looking for excellent read!

absolutely brilliant!!!

This series is hands down the best written book series I've ever read. The characters are well developed and multilayered. The storyline is masterfully woven. I cannot praise this series enough to do it justice. Jude is one of the best female characters ever created.

Couldn't stop listening!

I love these kinds of stories. I was completely captivated from the first book. I am looking forward to more stories about Jude Fontaine. I believe that there's more to tell.
Please, Ms. Frasier, don't make us wait too long.

I loved all three books in the series

I have a new favorite author, she has a great keep them guessing style. You might think you figured something out, but there will still be a surprise! The narrator was pretty darn good too, her reading allows you to really submerge yourself in the story. This is the 3rd in the series and they work best if read in order, if you were wondering.

Loved it. Sad it is over.

I loved this third and final installment of the Jude Fontaine series. I'm really sad it is over. I've only read this series by this author but I've bought a stand alone of hers and will be reading it soon. Excellent narration. It was read by Emily Sutton Smith

Fantastic Series

This was a great series. It may or may not end with this book and I'm ok with that. All loose ends were tied up with a pretty bow and a nearly happy ending, or at least, as happy as a murder mystery can be.

All three books

Have just finished the last of the three books, having never read this author was pleasantly impressed. I enjoyed the way you warmed to the main characters and the storyline and plots were original. Thoroughly enjoyed all three books.

Another Hit!

This is the third book in the series and I absolutely love them. It is well written and flows nicely, and your always wondering what's going to happens next. The narrator is not awful but I'm not a big fan and I am used to her and is now. Would definitely recommend this series and I would say start at book one because all the stories connect and follow on from each other.

Excellent read full of twists and turns

I have loved reading this trilogy, but if there are any more instalments coming, that would be great.

These books are easy to get into and keep you interested through out.
