Overview

In the first Afton Tangler thriller, the unforgiving cold of a Minnesota winter hides the truth behind an even more chilling crime...

On a frozen night in an affluent neighborhood of Minneapolis, a baby is abducted from her home after her teenage babysitter is violently assaulted. The parents are frantic, the police are baffled, and, with the perpetrator already in the wind, the trail is getting colder by the second.
As family liaison officer with the Minneapolis P.D., it s Afton Tangler s job to deal with the emotional aftermath of terrible crimes but she s never faced a case quite as brutal as this. Each development is more heartbreaking than the last and the only lead is a collection of seemingly unrelated clues.
But, most disturbing of all, Afton begins to suspect that this case is not isolated. Whoever did this has taken babies before and if Afton doesn t solve this crime soon, more children are sure to go missing . . .

Schmitt, the author of three cozy series under her Laura Childs pseudonym, tries her hand at a thriller with mixed results. Marjorie Sorenson, a human trafficker who kidnaps babies, specializes in creating reborn dolls, constructed to eerily resemble real infants. At a doll show at a Minnesota shopping mall, Marjorie’s booth attracts Susan Darden, the affluent mother of a three-month-old girl, Elizabeth Ann. Marjorie and her creepy son, Ronnie, tail Susan home, and the pair abduct Elizabeth Ann after overpowering a babysitter. Plucky family liaison officer Afton Tangler assists the frantic Susan and her husband with their trauma as the search for the child continues. Meanwhile, Afton can’t help noticing that the lead FBI agent in the case is “tall and lanky with steel gray hair and warm brown eyes the color of precious amber.” The denouement is both predictable and less than plausible in this tale for readers who don’t mind cartoonish villains and gratuitous injections of romance into a grim and disturbing plot line. (July)
