New York Times bestseller Julia Spencer-Fleming returns with the eighth novel in her much-loved series: THROUGH THE EVIL DAYS.
Clare Fergusson and her new husband, Police Chief Russ van Alstyne, are awoken in the night by an urgent call: a farmhouse has erupted into flames, killing the couple sleeping inside.
But the couple had not been alone - their eight-year-old foster child, Mikayla, has vanished. Still recovering from a life-saving operation, Mikayla will sicken and die if she doesn't receive medication, and now the police force of Millers Kill has just eight days to find her.
As snow drives down, they face a near-impossible task. And Clare and Russ discover that the icy storm isn't the only threat being posed... Can anyone unpick the trail before it's too late?
