Snow falls, but this is no ordinary white Christmas. There's no festive cheer, no carolers, no mistletoe. Three women are running for their lives: a college student home on break, the wife of a murdered DEA agent, a Denver widow. They're frightened and alone. And Lindsay Gray, Jenny Fitzgerald and Tessa Hampton are in peril. A desperate snowmobile chase through the forest; a raspy, anonymous telephone call; a bloody stranger by the side of the road--every step seems to lead farther from safety . . . but toward what? Who waits in the darkness? Friends? Lovers? And on a cold, silent night, when do you call for help?
