I am delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for The Snow Killer by Ross Greenwood. Here is my review.

The Snow Killer is described as ‘a cracking, crackling crime story with a twist in its tale which will surprise even the most hardened thriller readers.’

Following a horrendous crime where a family is gunned down, the sole survivor seeks revenge and the Snow Killer is born.

But then the case goes cold until fifty years later when something is reawakened.

The novel follows the story of the Snow Killer and the investigation team who face a race against time to catch the perpetrator before any more murders are committed.

This is the first in a new crime series featuring Detective Inspector Barton. The plot twists and turns at a fast pace. The weather adds a sense of urgency as the police soon make the connection between the timing of the murders and the arrival of snow.

The story is told from the viewpoints of the Snow Killer and DI Barton. This allows the reader to have an insight into both sides which means that we are often one step ahead of the detectives and this adds to the suspense as we follow the investigation.

We see the personal lives and back stories of everyone involved which creates characters that are more complex than just simply fitting into the categories of detectives, criminals or victims. They often find their own perceptions and beliefs challenged as the truth is finally revealed.

If you are a fan of crime thrillers, I recommend reading The Snow Killer. It concentrates on the details of the investigation and reveals everything just at the right time to lead into the final twist.

Ross Greenwood is the author of six crime thrillers. Before becoming a full-time writer he was most recently a prison officer and so worked everyday with murderers and thieves for four years. He lives in Peterborough and his first title for Boldwood – the beginning of a series – is The Snow Killer to be published in November 2019.
