"While this book does contain explicit sexual language and graphic violence, it could easily be taken from the daily headlines. The content is plausible and realistic as we look at the world around us. The events in the book are not overly done but give a pragmatic look at the terrifying actions killers can and sometimes do take."


It was a matter of beginner’s luck, but rookie detective Steven Quaid’s career and reputation as an elite investigator skyrocketed when he captured one of the most sadistic serial killers in Alaskan history: Stowy Jenkins, AKA the Snowman. But that was ten years ago.

And now…Jenkins is back. Escaped from prison and on the move, his bloodlust is stronger than ever, and his methods of torture are even more horrifying than before. As his bloody rampage continues and the number of mutilated bodies mounts, terrified Alaskans increasingly doubt Quaid’s ability to catch the killer again. The detective’s reputation is on the line, and he’s going to need a lot more than luck, because this time, Jenkins is driven by more than the thrill of a random kill.

This time, it’s more personal. He’s out for revenge…and his ultimate target is Quaid. In a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, Jenkins starts picking off the people in Quaid’s life…slowly, gradually tightening his circle of corpses and drawing ever closer to the most important person in Quaid’s life...his wife. Can Quaid do the impossible again? Can he outmaneuver the killer, or has the detective's luck finally run out?

Author Yolanda Renee
For those who aren’t familiar with the author, here’s a bit of background on her in her own words.

At one time Alaska called to me, and I answered. I learned to sleep under the midnight sun, survive in below zero temperatures, and hike the Mountain Ranges. I’ve traveled from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez, and the memories are some of my most valued. The wonders, mysteries and incredible beauty that is Alaska has never left me and thus now influences my writing.
Despite my adventurous spirit, I achieved my educational goals, married, and I have two handsome sons. Writing is now my focus, my newest adventure!

  1. Hi Bish and Renee - that excerpt sounds horrific ... but can see the reality of it all - some people are just very depraved. The act of revenge - I rather hope Quaid gets him before Jenkins kills too many ... seems it'll be a 'good' read - take care and all the best - Hilary

    1. Thanks, Hilary. I agree. There are many Quaid's that eventually get their man! :)

  2. Bish, thanks for being a part of Yolanda's tour and sharing this with your readers. Yolanda's book does ring of reality making me hope there's a lot of people like Quaid in the world to help keep us safe.

    1. Hi, Mason. Fr every crazy there's a sane person out there trying to put them away! :)

  3. "circle of corpses" is such great (and horrific!!!) imagery!!

    1. LOL, you're right Jemi, thanks for following the tour!

  4. Thank you, Bish, for hosting my blog tour! Support from fellow authors and readers is key to success! Thank you for being part of mine!

  5. Hi,
