Bone Cold is the story of Anna North who was the victim of a kidnapping when she was a young child. This kidnapping caused her to be more cautious as an adult which caused her to change her name and become a writer of thillers. However, her past has come back to haunt her. Someone knows who she was and is scaring her by killing red headed woman that look like her.
I truly enjoyed this book. I have had a hard time with the books I have been picking up to read and finishing them but this one I read in two days. I love the New Orleans setting and the characters. I thought the love attraction between Malone, the cop assisting with the killings and North were not too much. They were both just trying to find their way through their own situations but also dealing with their growing love for each other.
I love the plot to this story and know it is a little over the top but at least it was a great read. Would highly recommend.

Kept me guessing right till the end! I was glued to all 506 pages and finished it in a day. Then again, I was sick in bed so "real life" wasn't interfering.

What a book! Erica Spindler has woven a fascinating story with so many twists and turns in the plot; I can't even begin to review all of them without giving away vital information that would spoil the book for you. Ms. Spindler has outdone herself this time. If I had any complaints, I felt like the heroine was a little wimpy at times. But, I was so engrossed in the story, it was just a minor annoyance. If you like romantic suspense, this book is for you!

Anna North was kidnapped and terrorized as a child. She escaped her captor, but not before he cut Anna's pinkie off and killed her friend.

Now Anna is grown and living in New Orleans, still hiding from the kidnapper that she escaped 23 years ago. However, she begins to get strange letters... and then redheads like herself are found murdered... also missing their pinkies. Is Anna the main target?

All I can say about this one is "WOW!" The action starts immediately and doesn't let up until the very end. The plot twist in this one is a real shocker! If you like suspense, you'll love this book.

I enjoy Erica Spindler's writing very much. This book kept me know my toes, changing my idea of who the villain was. I read the last 100 pages before I could go to sleep. I just had to know how it ended, it was 1am by the time I finished! A very good read.

Exciting romantic thriller, February 15, 2001
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner - See all my reviews

In 1978 Southern California, with the help of a nurse, Kurt kidnaps thirteen-year-old Harlow Grail, daughter of a renowned actress and a popular plastic surgeon. Also abducted is the six-year-old son of the Grail family housekeeper Timmy, who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. When Kurt learns that the Grails talked to the police and the media, he suffocates Timmy and slices off Harlow's pinkie. Knowing Kurt will kill her once he collects his ransom, Harlow escapes.

In 2001 New Orleans, author Anna North still suffers from nightmares from when Kurt kidnapped her twenty-three years ago when she was Harlow. However, hell has just begun as Anna's mother inadvertently reveals that Harlow is a best selling author of mysteries living in New Orleans. Murders are beginning to hit the city turning the Big Easy into the Big Scary. With a pinkie sliced off one of the victims, Anna thinks Kurt is back to finish his job and only homicide detective Quentin Malone stands in his way.


BONE COLD is an exciting romantic-psychological police procedural that will entertain fans from both genres. The story line is fast-paced and filled with twists, keeping the reader on edge while wondering what will happen next. Though the twists require some acceptance, the audience will find it worth the leap as the suspense keeps growing until the reader finishes best selling author Erica Spindler's latest thriller
