Cold Pursuit by Nancy Mehl.

About the Book

Ex-FBI profiler River Ryland still suffers from PTSD after a case that went horribly wrong. Needing a fresh start, she moves to St. Louis to be near her ailing mother and opens a private investigation firm with her friend and former FBI partner, Tony St. Clair. They’re soon approached by a grieving mother who wants them to find out what happened to her teenaged son who disappeared four years ago. River knows there’s almost no hope the boy is still alive, but his mother needs closure, and River and Tony need a case, no matter how cold it might be.

But as they follow the boy’s trail, which gets more complicated at every turn, they find themselves in the path of a murderer determined to punish anyone who gets in his way. With a killer on the loose set on finishing the job he started, will River be pulled back into her tormented past or finally face the demons that haunt her?

With her trademark blend of page-turning thrills and intricate plots, Nancy Mehl delivers a spine-tingling thriller that will keep readers up all night.

Danielle’s Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.

Cold Pursuit by Nancy Mehl is the first book in her Ryland & St. Clair suspense series.

This was a thrilling, and fascinating, story. River and Tony worked so well together, and I loved how they supported one another. The mystery unfolded with lots of tension. And the struggles of the characters — whether PTSD, physical challenges, or Synesthesia — made each real and relatable.

Though River is the main character, with multiple point-of-views, readers can understand the motives of other characters, including Tony. I especially liked reading his scenes and it made me hope a romance could develop between him and River. I’m looking forward to seeing how things unfold in book two!

If you enjoy unraveling a cold case alongside two behavioral specialist PIs, then given this suspense a read.
