(The first book in the Nicole Cobain Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
The brutal murder of a teenager and a deadly medical drama plunge a small-town sheriff into a vortex of treachery and greed in the debut novel of Emery Hayes's A Nicole Cobain Mystery series.

First female sheriff of Toole County, Montana Nicole Cobain earned the position through mental and physical grit and when a young girl is found murdered on icy Lake Maria, every bit of it is tested. But what begins as a chase for the killer quickly unravels into a high stakes medical transaction with harrowing consequences.

Eight years ago, Nicole fled her fast-track position as a homicide detective with the Denver Police Department in an act of desperation to save both her son and herself. Answering a recruitment ad, she showed up in the foothills of Glacier National Park and was elected sheriff six years later. She has a measure of peace in her new surroundings, her son is thriving, and she has effectively distanced herself from her past. Until Benjamin Kris shows up again.

Benjamin is the father of Nicole's son and a big-time charmer who has quickly scaled the crime ladder. He has a large clientele and is looking forward to a big pay day that lands him in Toole. But when it becomes clear he could be a suspect among several others in town with opportunity and motive, it's up to Nicole to sift through the tangled threads to find the killer before they strike again.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"Cold to the Bone is such a thrilling and atmospheric read. It felt as though I was 'working with' Sheriff Nicole Cobain to solve the murder and routing for her every step of the way. I can't wait to read more about her in this addictive series." - Lisa Cutts

"Cold to the Bone sizzles with angst-riddled characters testing their own limits, the suspense boiling over on a level that would make Craig Johnson's Longmire or C.J. Box's Joe Picket series proud. A crime-thriller extraordinaire." - Jon Land
