"A THRILL RIDE . . . AS CURRENT AS TODAY'S FRONT-PAGE NEWS!" --Colleen Coble, USA Today best-selling author

A curse.
A killer.
A chill in the air. 
Temps are dropping and time is running out. 
In her new role as Emergency Operations Center director for Fairbanks, Alaska, Darcie Phillips prevents disasters. But none of her training can prepare her for the terror that's coming. 
As a cybersecurity specialist, Jason Myers is determined to ferret out any threats to the town he now calls home--and that includes his reckless brother and his ecoterrorist friends. 
When an old woman's wild prediction--widespread destruction as soon as the Fairbanks temperature falls to 26 below--hits national headlines, neither Darcie nor Jason sees a real risk to anything but tourism. 
Then the bodies start dropping. 
Darcie is relying on her experience and intelligence to stop a killer; Jason is relying on God to guide the way. But they'll have to work together to find the truth and prevent their Alaskan town from becoming a city of nightmares. 
"An action-packed page-turner that . . . blew me away. If you like stories of intrigue, action, romance, and biblical hope, this is the story for you." --Tracie Peterson, ECPA and USA Today best-selling author

Book Excerpt

Apparently an older, native woman held everyone’s interest. From what Darcie understood, the woman hadmade small waves all summer with her dire predictions. But she appeared in random locations and disappeared without a trace. Most people had said she was superstitious or crazy. Then a news crew just happened to be in the right place at the right time and had caught her on video. That’s when it went viral. Everyone was talking about it now.


As long as the woman kept people’s attention elsewhere, Darcie was content to let them talk. It was nice to not be in the limelight. Not that she wanted to sweep anything under the carpet, but she needed control—to have all the answers to all the questions—before anything was printed about her new position.


A blast of cold air greeted her as she swung open the door. The heating and cooling system in the building probably didn’t know what to do with these temps that were crazy for this time of year.


Thank God she didn’t have to program the thermostat.


The words filled her mind before she even realized it. That sounded like her mom. Praise God for this and thank God for that . . .


Faith in an almighty creator was from her past. She’d gone to church until her parents split up when she wastwelve. Yeah, she’d been sincere when she’d given her life to Christ. But she’d been a child. As an adult, she was all too aware that the world’s blows were far stronger than whatever faith she’d once had.


First thoughts of her dad. Now her mom. Ugh. She didn’t need this right now.
