They found her on the beach, frozen, like a statue carved in ice...

Post-war Boston is down on its luck, and desperate to reinvent itself. But promises of a brighter future sound ever more hollow as the worst winter in recent memory tightens its grip.

No one is interested in a string of murdered women - everyone would much rather pretend they don't exist. But the latest victim was loved...

Old friends Cal and Dante are both struggling to find a way to live in a city that seems to be leaving them behind. The hunt for a killer gives them new purpose, as well as making them powerful enemies. But they believe in justice and second chances, and they will see this thing through - whatever the cost.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Brutally realistic...The authors give us one last, lingering look at the good-bad old days * New York Times Book Review *
This is a bone-crunching, gut-wrenching novel that captures the atmosphere of a city in decay and its inhabitants. It delivers noir fiction like we always want it to be * Kirkus Reviews *
O'Malley and Purdy bring postwar Boston to life, making neighbourhoods feel as distinct as separate countries...They have delivered a love-letter to a Boston that's long gone. * Publishers Weekly *
Gorgeous...A noir novel can be the high, slippery tightrope of mysteries. It's difficult to sustain a dark, moody balance; many writers slide right off into caricature. But O'Malley and Purdy let in just enough daylight - even if it's harsh winter light - to hold out hope of redemption. * WBUR *
