Ice Man by Ron Cutler

First sentence: 

"It was December."


"Snow was falling when they found her floating downriver. She was naked, still chained, her beauty forever frozen in a block of ice. Jason Briscoe, the man convicted of the crime, claims it wasn't murder. Just rough sex gone too far. Prison psychologist Holly Alexander agrees. Sex offenders are her specialty, and she approves the handsome Briscoe's parole. But that's before Holly meets his living victims. Before the strange signs surface. Before the tables are turned and she becomes the hunted. Now Holly knows everything, but can prove nothing. And somewhere in the cold shadows, he waits to kill again..." -- from the back cover

My thoughts:

This is a very intense thriller that kept my interest throughout. As the main character, Holly Alexander, becomes increasingly isolated from friends and family, I wondered how she would survive and overcome her enemy. Cutler doesn't make things easy for Holly and while sometimes I found the obstacles seemingly endless, I now appreciate the problems Holly faced.
