His personal life is on the rocks. Catching this murderer may be his only shot at redemption...
Doug Bateman is barely keeping it together. Still grieving over his son's death and with his marriage crumbling, the Maine State Police detective's ties to his small town is one of the few things giving him comfort. So he's horrified by the discovery of a mutilated corpse in the local lake... especially when evidence points to torture by methods of the Spanish Inquisition.
Partnered with a quick-witted and talented new deputy from the Sheriff's office, Bateman throws himself deep into the investigation. But as all their clues lead to dead ends, the body count rises, and his interest in his colleague becomes more than professional, the dedicated cop fears he's become part of a butcher's gruesome game.
Can Bateman unmask a madman before someone else he cares about dies?
The Ice Maiden is the compelling first book in the Doug Bateman Mystery police procedural series. If you like spine-tingling thrills, unexpected romance, and authentic settings, then you'll love B.D. Smith's chilling tale.
