I received a free copy of this book in a Goodreads giveawayAn atmospheric thriller set in the mountain village of Hallstatt Austria Nine year old Traudi is trapped in her home by heavy snowfall unsure where her mother and brother have gone and hearing strange noises outside that chill her with fear Leo Hirsch from the Mountain Rescue volunteer team is battling with a job he dislikes and the end of a relationship Then he gets an emergency call that proves to be very different from his previous missionsThis is an evocative mystery with a brilliant sense of place The mountain is both terrible and beautiful menacing yet spellbinding Traudi's small wooden house is a place of safety but also a place of isolation and her growing terror is skilfully portrayed The author takes us into the thoughts of both Traudi and Leo so we come to know them really well I had partially worked out the main twist of the plot at around half way through but it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the story at all primarily because it was so beautifully written and the suspense was maintained There was also the secondary story line of Leo's big decision that kept the attention and was not fully resolved until the very end and which itself had some surprises to reveal This was a gem of a novel engrossing and haunting and I would definitely read from this author
