An excellently-written, almost poetic in description, paranormal story which I literally read in one sitting. By turns thriller, Supernatural, gently romantic, corporate-greedy, with a large cast of characters to entertain, delight, and scare the reader. Not to mention, anyone who isn't cowed by this wildly-imagined "monster"--well, doesn't have a lot of imagination. BITTER COLD has my HIGH recommendation. Can't wait for more from this author!
