About this ebook

The discovery of human remains in a roadside ditch leads K9 handler, Ryder Creed and his scent dog, Grace on a dangerous search. An early October snowstorm isn't the only thing that blindsides the pair, and SUDDENLY THE TRACKERS BECOME THE TRAPPED.

New York Times, USA Today and Amazon bestselling author, Alex Kava, is the recipient of two Nebraska Book Awards, a Florida Book Award and the Mari Sandoz Award.

"Kava melds fact and fiction into a fast-moving, compelling and totally believeable story." —Crime Review, UK


K9 handler, Ryder Creed and his scent dog, Grace return to Nebraska to join FBI Agent, Maggie O'Dell and Special Investigator, Tommy Pakula on the same task force that helped rescue his sister, Brodie a year ago. But their job is interrupted when a rural Postal carrier finds a black, plastic bag discarded in a grassy roadside ditch.

What's inside is shocking to even these seasoned investigators: the partial remains of what appears to be a young woman.


Just that morning another young woman has gone missing. Is her disappearance connected? Did she run away? Or was she taken? And is it only a matter of time before she ends up in a roadside ditch?

Ryder agrees to search for her, but an early snowstorm threatens to replace the warm fall temperatures. His scent dog, Grace has never worked in cold and snowy conditions.


The snow blurs the landscape and grinds life to a halt. As Maggie O'Dell searches for answers about the victim, she begins to uncover a cold-blooded, ruthless killer who has murdered before. By the time Maggie realizes no one has heard or seen Ryder since before the snow began to fall, she fears he and Grace may have walked into the killer's path.
