    • Action packed, great writing, fast-paced and I didn't work it out until the twists were revealed (which sometimes happens with me when reading crime novels). Took a little while to get into but I really enjoyed the novel.


    • Time taken to read - 7 days (on and off)Pages - 358Publisher - Simon & SchusterBlurb from There's a time to love, a time to hate, a time to heal . . . and a time to kill.On a freezing cold winter's day, the body of a young woman is pulled from an icy canal in London. To D.I. Dan Carter it looks like a tragic accident rather than the work of a murderer. But D.C. Ebony Willis is not so sure. Why has the woman's face been painted with garish make-up and wrapped in a plastic bag?Meanwhile cosmet [...]



    • I really liked this book. the story revolves around a person who kidnaps young single mothers, tortures them and finally kills them. The task to capture and stop this person falls to the team of MIT 17 (major investigation team number 17) based in London. The story throws up a number of different subjects and the reader is kept guessing until near the end who this person is and then it is a race against time to save some of victims. A good read.


    • This is the best book I've read in a while. So many red herrings that took me down a different path every time I thought I had worked everything out. Did manage to be right about some of it; but kept me hooked right until the end


    • This is a pacey thriller, which is quite chilling in places. Good characterisation and superb plot which keeps you guessing right up until you get to know who the killer is. The one you least suspect!



    • Very goodThoroughly enjoyed this book. Great story. I thought the first book was better but this one was still very good.


    • I received this copy from the publishers for an open and honest review. Having recently completed a long run of Young Adult novels I was looking forward to reading another crime thriller, one of my favourite genres thanks to the likes of Linwood Barclay and Sophie Hannah. This was my first taste of Lee Weeks' writing and I was certainly not let down. 'Cold As Ice' is a page turning thriller that had me gripped from start to finish.Cold As Ice starts with a bang with the discovery of a young woma [...]


    • On a cold winter’s day a body of a young women is pulled out of an icy canal in London. D.I Dan Carter see’s it as an accident not a murder, but D.C Ebony Willis is not so sure! Meanwhile Tracy Collins receives an unsuspecting phone call from her daughter who she put up for adoption twenty years ago. Tracy decides to kindle a relationship with her daughter and grandson. But when her daughter goes missing Tracy is plunged into her own nightmare. With the discovery of a new body being found it [...]


    • Another chilling mystery from Lee Weeks.Months after going missing, a young mother is found dead in the River Thames.

She tracks down her birth mother after having been adopted as a baby and begins to form a relationship with her mother.Danielle also goes missing leaving Tracey to come to terms with taking care of her Grandson and deal with the fallout of he [...]


    • Follow up to Dead of Winter this is Lee Weeks the female author - leeweeks and twitter @leeweeksauthor.I really enjoy Lee's writing, she can carry a story and the plot here is much more believable than her first novel in this series about a London MIT - murder squad. However, this is a crowded area in crime fiction and I am left asking if there is much originality here that lets it stand out from the rest. The book is a pleasure to read and the characterisation excellent but I wonder about Dan C [...]


    • I really loved Lee Weeks' previous book 'Dead of winter' so I thought this one would be on the same level. I have to admit it did not quite match up to the previous book, I still like her style of writing, its easy to read and very engaging, however I felt more alliance with the characters in the first book and found the plot more engaging. With this book I feel it got a little lost at times, I could never really connect with the storyline about the husband who had been sacked and was living awa [...]


    • I enjoyed this even more than the first in the series. It was a fast paced book, with an ending I really didn't see coming.


    • An engaging, if unsettling, page-turner - but that's what thrillers are about. There is a mixed cast of characters, our suspicion falling on several as the author leads us up a few dead ends.The plot revolves around the usual scenario of missing women, opening with the disappearance of a daughter given up for adoption who makes contact with her birth mother. Less usual is the detail that they are eventually found wearing a piece of jewellery not their own and are daubed in bizarre make-up. The p [...]


    • Book 2 Ebony Willis seriesThis was OK. The story was good up until you found out what the modus operandi of the murderer was, and then it got a bit ridiculous. I quite liked the books by this author but this is the weakest to date.Ebony Willis is called to a crime scene when a young woman is found in a frozen canal. Initially her death is thought to be an accident but it soon becomes clear all is not as it seems. Another student from the same college group goes missing and Ebony is sent undercov [...]


    • Crime novels are my favourite and this one didn't disappoint, didn't take me long to read as I couldn't put it down! Kept guessing who did it the whole way through and the writing makes you feel like you've predicted the murderer early on only to completely throw you at the end! However I did feel like some parts of the story dragged a little, perhaps this was just my sheer impatience to get to the end? But will definitely be reading other books by this author!


    • Good book to read, good character basis with not too many characters. Not the strongest of storylines in relation to the deaths but there is reasoning behind the killings. I found it very easy to visualise what was written in the book and extensive research had been put in even with the little things about the young Down syndrome boy! Good book!


    • I had to quit reading at page 218, about halfway through. I can't deal with serial killers who torture. When someone set the dog on fire I had to quit! I gave 2 stars instead of one, because the author does write fairly well, but the amount of nastiness was just too much for me. I really did want to continue on to find out who the bad guy was but could not!


    • Loved this book. A true gritty and gripping crime novel. A bit grimy in places and had me squirming but not over the top and still believable (not that you'd want to believe there were sick people in the world). Was quite surprised to read other reviews where they hadn't guessed who the murdered was though. I found it glaringly obvious


    • I'd give this book 3 and 1/2 stars, decent storyline and characters. Kept me keeping the pages turning and interested in what was going to happen nexta good book which certainly doesn't put me off the author, will be reading more from her! :)


    • The second of Ms. Weeks' winter novels featuring DI Dan Carter, DC Ebony Willis and their cast of colleagues. An engaging thriller with a scary denouement and several juicy red herrings thrown in along the way.





    • Crazy killings.Rather gruesome killings. Several suspects, so keeps you guessing. Investigators all dedicated, each with their different problems and hang ups.





    • A gripping read!A gripping read which was full of suspense. Definitely for lovers of crime thrillers. I couldn't put this book down!
