It all started with a chance encounter in the city with Blair, his late wife.
Chris Matheson and the Geezer Squad, working under the guise of a book club, dig into the events surrounding his late wife’s supposed death halfway around the globe. A state department employee shoots himself in the back three times. A CIA operative goes missing. A woman is targeted by an international assassin three years after being declared dead in a terrorist attack overseas.
Nothing is as it seems.
In his most personal cold case, Chris fights to uncover why the state department told him that Blair, the mother of his children, had been killed when she was alive. What had she uncovered that has made her a target? Who terrified her so much that she had gone into hiding and why are they now after him?

In this second installment, Winter Frost continues Lauren Carr’s A Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery series. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book, Ice, and this one did not disappoint me. Readers can read this one as a stand alone but I would recommend to read Ice first before starting this one. It gives more of a back story of Chris Matheson, his family and his friends.
Winter Frost involves the main character from Ice, Retired FBI agent, Chris Matheson, and his investigative team, the Geezer Squad. They go undercover as a book club to find out the death of his late wife and mother of his children, Blair, on the other side of the world. What they discover completely through me for a loop. I had no idea they would find what they did! I would have never predicted what would happen next. Which involves, federal government employees from going missing to getting shot in the multiple times, foreign terrorists attacks and faked deaths.
Winter Frost is another fun and entertaining read. It is full of colorful characters, including highly intelligent canine, Sterling. He is just so funny that made me laugh all the way through. The plot has action, adventure, mystery and suspense.
I would give Winter Frost one hundred stars if I could. I highly recommend this book. It is not one to be missed! If the reader is a audiobook fan, the narrator for this one does an awesome job with his performance bringing the pages to life. I hope there will be more in the series in the future.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
