David is beginning a new life, but the killings begin again, and it appears that David is the only person able to stop them. Should he go back to the town that he does not like. If he actually does, is he going to wind up like his dad? Dead?

The story is very descriptive and tense read throughout; it is definitely worth checking out. A long book that keeps your attention and each of the characters is very believable. The book never pulls its punches when it is describing the depravity and the brutality of the antagonist.

Harper gets drawn reluctantly into this investigation, he will stop at nothing in order to find these girls. He does not care who gets in his way.

These are some fantastic characters, particularly Frank. He can be soft at times, but his strengths still shine through. The guy has a ton of issues and is a flawed character. Greg Enslen does a great job of slowly building up the suspense in this, and is just a good mystery.

“Black Ice” is the second novel in the “Frank Harper” series, which was released in the year 2015. It all seemed like a simple job. Frank is back in Cooper’s Mill in order to spend time with his grandson and daughter, however a bone-chilling winter has settled over this tiny Ohio town.

Greg Enslen does a fantastic job with his cast, and the main guy has got so many issues to work through the progress he makes is erratic at best. The book is an amazing read and tough to put down; it is able to make some readers feel like they are right in the middle of the action.

The books have great stories, believable characters, and Enslen is also able to make you feel like you are in Cooper’s Mill, Ohio.
