Winter's End by John Rickards


Winter's End by John Rickards

They have the body of a slaughtered woman. They have a half-naked man standing over her. They have no idea how to make him talk. And so they call in ex-FBI interrogator Alex Rourke to the traumatized Maine town of Winter's End. But as Rourke probes the mind of the enigmatic 'Nicholas', he is forced to re-examine his own past .... Strange things have been happening in Winter's End. The question is why. And if the man in custody does hold the answers to crimes both present and past, then Alex will have to get to them - and quickly. Because it soon becomes clear that what Nicholas has been waiting for from the beginning - is Alex Rourke.
