Despite my earlier complaints of lack of man love, I really enjoyed this book. I'm slowly becoming a fan of Ann Somerville. Cold Front goes a long ways to prove she can write a good thriller. I was sitting on the edge, reading at a good pace, waiting to find out who committed the crimes. Then I read for the time when the characters would get a clue. Well done for keeping the suspense on edge.Very nicely, the author brings the couple back together. Dek learns what is important to him. Ren's world of humor and joy becomes tainted. And would you believe, I really liked Hadin even though he's a stick in the mud.
