2nd book with Rick Beanblossom as the main character. It's difficult to put this book down, and any interruption is very annoying! Beanblossom in the middle of a replay of the Lindbergh kidnapping, with the baby being his own son this time around. Lots of interweaving of past and present. Thayer is a great storyteller. Lots of highly interesting characters don't clutter the story, but enrich it immensely. I recommend this book to readers who like mysteries with substance.

"The author uses his mastery of historical detail to build his own spellbinding version of the original kidnapping. He also blances the icy clarity of his investigative thinking with the welcome warmth of his characterizations. And in the end, he leaves us with the chillng thought that the snow might never melt on some buried secrets." from New York Times book Review

As the height of a savage Minnesota blizzard, beanblossom's son is stolen from his nursery--a terrifying re-creation of the Lindbergh crime. To get his son back, Beanblossom must bury his pain and rely on his reporter's instincts to follow the kidnapper's footsteps from the present to the past through...SLIENT SNOW

I thought this story was a terrifying re-creation of the Lindbergh crime in 1932 and strange that the copycat crime was reinacted on the anniversary of the 1932 Lindbergh kidnapping. Great historical details of the orignal crime. Through the story you didn't know who was doing the actual crime until the end. And the ending kept you guessing still. A fasinating story!

I'd forgotten I'd read this one a while back when I ordered it. But I was glad that I had done so. Interesting premises in the book. I recommend it.

A story similar to the Lindbergh kidnapping... One of those books that's hard to put down.

I thought this book was good. I really liked that it was based in MN and mirrored the Lindberg baby kidnapping. Growing up 10 minutes away from Little Falls and a couple hours away from the Twin Cities, I loved that I knew where the author writing about! It had a great storyline and I was interested through the end. Glad I found this book!

Rick Beanblossom, an investigative reporter, and his wife, a beautiful television anchor, are themselves catapulted into the news when their one-year-old son is kidnapped and held for ransom in a crime eerily reminiscent of the Lindbergh baby kidnapping. Guidall is at his best narrating this highly suspenseful story. The listener can't help but get caught up in the excitement, which is magnified by the sometimes breathless performance. The voices are utterly convincing and, despite frequent flashbacks to the Lindbergh case, are maintained so well that there's never any doubt who is speaking. The intensity of the drama is enhanced by Guidall's superb reading. S.S.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
