Cold as Hell by Lilja Sigurdardóttir & Quentin Bates Book Summary

ÁrÓra returns to Iceland when her estranged sister goes missing, and her search leads to places she could never have imagined. A chilling, tense thriller – FIRST in an addictive, nerve-shattering new series – from one of Iceland's bestselling authors...

'Icelandic crime writing at its finest ... immersive and unnerving' Shari Lapena

'Best-selling Icelandic crime-writer Sigurdardottir has built a formidable reputation with just four novels, but here she introduces a new protagonist who is set to cement her legacy' Daily Mail

'Another bleak, unpredictable classic' Metro

**Winner: Best Icelandic Crime Novel of the Year**


Icelandic sisters ÁrÓra and Ísafold live in different countries and aren't on speaking terms, but when their mother loses contact with Ísafold, ÁrÓra reluctantly returns to Iceland to find her sister. But she soon realizes that her sister isn't avoiding her ... she has disappeared, without trace.

As she confronts Ísafold's abusive, drug-dealing boyfriend BjÖrn, and begins to probe her sister's reclusive neighbours – who have their own reasons for staying out of sight – ÁrÓra is led into an ever-darker web of intrigue and manipulation.

Baffled by the conflicting details of her sister's life, and blinded by the shiveringly bright midnight sun of the Icelandic summer, ÁrÓra enlists the help of police officer DanÍel, as she tries to track her sister's movements, and begins to tail BjÖrn – but she isn't the only one watching...

Slick, tense, atmospheric and superbly plotted, Cold as Hell marks the start of a riveting, addictive new series from one of Iceland's bestselling crime writers.
