Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town—the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Not so, lately. Four women have disappeared from Cleary over the past two years. And there's always a blue ribbon left near the spot where each of the women was last seen. There are no bodies, no other clues, and no suspicion as to who their abductor might be. And now, another woman has disappeared without a trace.
It is to this backdrop that Lilly Martin returns to close the sale of her mountain cabin, marking the end of her turbulent eight-year marriage to Dutch Burton, Cleary's chief of police. Dutch's reluctance to let her go isn't Lilly's only obstacle. As she's trying to outrun a snowstorm, her car skids on the icy road and strikes a man. She recognizes the injured man as Ben Tierney, whom she'd met the previous summer. They're forced to wait out the storm in the cabin, but as the hours of their confinement mount, Lilly begins to wonder if the greatest danger to her safety isn't the blizzard outside, but the mysterious man right beside her. Is Ben Tierney the feared abductor? Or is he who he claims to be...her rescuer from harm and from the tragedy that haunts her?

"Stephen Lang's breathy baritone adds a deep sense of disquiet as writer Ben Tierney buries a body--next to three other bodies. Is he the serial psycho, "Blue," who's been abducting women? The FBI thinks so. But Lilly Burton knows him simply as a guy she flirted with last summer. Lang keeps things intriguing enough to involve listeners as the plot struggles toward its obvious setup: A car accident and a monstrous blizzard combine to leave Lilly and Ben stranded alone at Lilly's cabin. As the pace picks up, Lang keeps anxiety on the front burner. Apprehension mounts, suspense builds, and the climax holds listeners to the headphones.
