Hard Cold Winter by Glen Erik Hamilton

Uncorrected Proof Paperback
I read the uncorrected proof paperback edition of Hard Cold Winter by Glen Erik Hamilton that I'd received for free from Goodreads Giveaway.

Below is my honest, unbiased review of Hard Cold Winter by Glen Erik Hamilton.

Hard Cold Winter by Glen Erik Hamilton is the first novel I've read by Glen Erik Hamilton. It's also the second novel to feature Van Shaw. 

I liked the leading character of Van Shaw quite a bit as he's a likable character with an interesting past. I also enjoyed Glen Erik Hamilton's writing and how he draws readers into his novel, Hard Cold Winter, from the start and keeps readers interested through to the very end. If you enjoy reading enthralling thrillers with good plots, then you'll enjoy reading Hard Cold Winter.

The following is the plot summary for Hard Cold Winter by Glen Erik Hamilton from Goodreads:
Former Army Ranger and thief Van Shaw is thrust into danger as lethal and unpredictable as the war he left behind in this emotionally powerful and gritty follow up to the acclaimed Past Crimes. 
When an old crony of Van Shaw’s late grandfather calls in a favor, the recently-discharged Ranger embarks on a dangerous journey to the Olympic Mountains, in search of a missing girl tied to Van’s own criminal past. What he finds instead is a brutal murder scene, including a victim from one of Seattle’s most influential families. 
But the dead bodies are only the start of Van’s troubles. A fellow Ranger from Afghanistan turns up at Van’s doorstep, seeking support from his former sergeant even as Van wrestles with his own reemerging symptoms of PTSD. The murder investigation leads to heavy pressure, with a billionaire businessman on one side and vicious gangsters on the other, each willing to play dirty to get what they want. 
The price of his survival may be too high, demanding moral compromises that could destroy Van’s relationship with his iron-willed girlfriend, Luce. And when a trusted friend’s betrayal pushes him to the edge, Van has to enlist help from some unexpected places—including someone he believed was lost forever. 
The Ranger will need every ally he can get. A powerful, unseen player is about to unleash a firestorm on Seattle that will burn Van and his people to ashes—and it will take a miracle to stop it.
All in all, I highly recommend reading Hard Cold Winter by Glen Erik Hamilton. I am giving Hard Cold Winter by Glen Erik Hamilton a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars. I would now like to read the first novel in the Van Shaw Series just to see where it all began.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
