Evelyn Talbot has spent her life trying to find out what makes a psychopath and how to better understand them. She was tortured and almost killed by her high school boyfriend, Jasper, and is dealing with that as best she can. Jasper has never been captured and Evelyn lives in fear of him each day of her life and of course when this story picks up 20 years after the high school incident Jasper has truly come back.
Evelyn’s managed to obtain funding for a facility in Alaska to house some of the top criminals to begin a study on the nature of these killers which will be known as the Hanover House. When the facility in Alaska is vandalized during construction she travels there to oversee the damage and hire security. Evelyn begins a friendship with Amarok, the local state trooper. For the first time in a long time she let’s herself begin trusting a man and feeling some sort of attraction.
I absolutely loved this book. Wonderful writing and a truly intense story with Jasper and the beginning of a beautiful relationship with Amarok. Evelyn is someone you can’t help but truly feel for when she tells about her life and absolutely admire her for what she is doing even though it has to be hard on her. Amarok is a true gentlemen that really seems to start caring for Evelyn and helping her start to heal. Their relationship is truly touching in what is otherwise an intense book.
A definite page turner and would recommend to anyone looking for a good thriller. My only complaint I can think of after finishing this book is it will be such a long wait until Whiteout, the next in the Hanover House series, comes out in September 2016.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
