A female racecar driver gets wrapped up in an ice skater's gruesome murder in this page-turning thriller. Mauve Bridger is climbing out of the frozen lake when the ice breaks beneath her and she falls into the water. She hauls herself back onto the ladder, but someone pushes her back down. She swims blindly through the icy depths, finally escaping to the far side of the lake, but the killers are waiting for her there. They take her back to her house, kneel on her chest, and cut her throat with her own skates. First on the scene is L.C. Converse, a former racecar driver turned mechanic who happens to be on a date with the detective who catches Mauve's case. L.C. witnessed her father's murder five years ago, so finding Mauve on the floor brings back grisly memoriesand this won't be the last death. This quiet Connecticut town has been marked by murder, and to escape it, L.C. will have to race faster than she ever has before. L.C. is a classic Richard Forrest hero: an ordinary woman in a deadly situation that spirals out of control. Forrest was an expert at writing realistic emotional thrillers, and The Killing Edge shows him at his best.
