"The stylish debut of a new series set against Maine's dark and foreboding forests. I'm hooked!"
"Fast and dangerous, an extraordinarily entertaining read, Winter at the Door grabbed me from the thrilling first page."
-Linda Castillo, New York Times bestselling author of The Dead Will Tell
"Sarah Graves has pulled off a small miracle. Through artfully precise language and a plot that kept me turning pages well past my bedtime, she transported me to a North Woods village that seemed utterly real. What a fantastic setting, and what a great character in Lizzie Snow. I can't wait for the next book."
-Paul Doiron, author of The Bone Orchard
Ex-Boston homicide detective Lizzie Snow has moved from the big city to remote Bearkill, Maine, trading past tragedy and personal betrayal for a shot at finding her missing niece. But to Lizzie, northern Maine is as cold and foreign as the dark side of the moon, and while she struggles to adjust, something wicked is watching her, waiting for its chance.
As a punishing blizzard bears down on Bearkill and the town's dark secrets claw their terrifying way to the surface at last, Lizzie gears up for a desperate showdown that could leave the driven snow stained blood-red - and Lizzie herself buried in a frozen grave that no one will ever find.
A wicked Maine winter, a stone-cold killer....the woods are dark and deep.
