Agnes Luthi has just transferred over from Financial Crimes to the Violent Crimes unit and is now on her first case. A body has been found lying by a bench and is getting covered by ice from the blizzard of the century raging over the landscape. Agnes is now stuck at a chateau where the murder took place because the ice and snow has made the roads impassable and there is no phone or electricity. She is finding it difficult to get the answers she needs from those in the chateau. Agnes worries for her own safety as she begins to wonder if the crime will ever be solved.
This was a good story about a Swiss-American detective who is stranded at a chateau with the killer. The fact that it took place in Switzerland and that she was stuck with the killer made me want to read this. I found the story to be slow for most of the book. The majority of the book is Agnes and her team trying to find clues to help solve the case with little action. The last 10% of the book is where all of the action took place. It was an enjoyable plot, but I was really in the mood for a more intense story. If you decide to read this book keep in mind it is a slower paced mystery but still a decent one.
I rated this 3/5 stars.
