Review: The Snow Graves by Roger Stelljes

The Snow Graves Book Review.

Publisher Description:

The young couple lies still on the snow-covered sidewalk, their gloved hands tightly linked as though they could save each other. But flashing blue lights illuminate the quiet street, and drops of blood scatter the pure white ground…

Agent Tori Hunter is heartbroken at the murders of Cam and Gracie, two college students dating for just a few months, shot dead outside his aunt’s home. With witnesses in this once-peaceful neighborhood saying they saw a black car speed away, Tori is desperately tracking it down when a nine-year-old girl is found sitting alone on a park bench, refusing to speak. No-one in this small community knows who she is… is she somehow linked to the murders?

Visiting little Alisha as she huddles in her pink coat, Tori quickly realises she is deaf. As her hands move in sign language Tori makes out her message: We had to run from the lady in the black car. I want to go home.

Did Alisha witness Cam and Gracie’s killer? Tori is racing to follow her directions to a lonely cabin deep in the pine forest when she gets an anonymous call from a female voice that makes her blood run cold. “Hello, Tori. To keep Alisha safe you need to do exactly as I say…”

Is Tori speaking to the killer, or is putting her trust in this mysterious woman her one hope of catching the true perpetrator? As more phone calls come, it’s clear the voice knows all about a cold case from Tori’s past—and that Tori must confront this twisted mind, and her own darkest demons before more innocent lives are lost.

The Snow Graves Thrilling Reads Book Review: A Riveting Thriller by Roger Stelljes

From the very first installment of Roger Stelljes’ gripping series, I was hooked with this fast-paced thriller series. Now, with the release of “The Snow Graves,” the fifth book in this exhilarating crime series, my appreciation for thriller series has only grown even more. This novel showcases Detective Will Braddock and Former Special Agent Tori Hunter in their most thrilling adventure yet as the investigate the murder two college students.

“The Snow Graves” is a great addition to this exciting serires, especially, since this the fifth book in the series and it doesn’t dissapoint.

It’s the kind of book that keeps you up at night, turning page after page, hungry for more. Roger Stelljes has an undeniable talent for keeping readers on the edge of their seats. The pacing? Fast and furious. The character development? Rich, dynamic, and multi-dimensional.

And just when you think you’ve caught your breath, the climax hits you with an electrifying jolt of adrenaline.

Oh, and basically, as someone who spent two decades in Minnesota, I have a soft spot for stories set against its picturesque backdrop.

This series, with its rural Minnesota setting, evokes fond memories of John Sandford’s Virgil Flowers series.

There’s something about the Minnesotan landscape that adds an extra layer of depth and intrigue to crime thrillers.

Given that Stelljes is known for weaving complex storylines, I wanted to point out that “The Snow Graves” stands out as the most intricate of them all. This complexity did slow down the action a tad for me, but by no means did it diminish the book’s overall entertainment value. With this in mind, this is just a word of caution for those diving in: be prepared for a rich tapestry of plots and subplots.

In summary, “The Snow Graves” is a must-read for thriller enthusiasts. And with book #6 on the horizon, the excitement continues. Dive into this enthralling world crafted by the brilliant Roger Stelljes. You won’t be disappointed, especially if your fan of gritty crime thrillers with compelling characters.

It's safe to say that Alan Petersen loves mystery and thriller books. He writes high-octane thrillers, hosts the MEET THE THRILLER AUTHOR podcast, and reviews thriller/mystery books.
