What you need to know before your trail

In the snow-covered silence of Swedish midwinter, a terrible accident and a deadly secret draws several strangers together…January in Gotland. The days are short, the air is cold, and all the roads are covered in snow. On a deserted, icy backroad, these wintery conditions will soon bring together a group of strangers with a force devastating enough to change their lives forever when, in the midst of a brief period, a deadly accident and two separate crimes leave victims in their wake.

Four years later a single phone call is all it takes to bring back the terror of that day and to set in motion a plot for revenge. For Sandra it started as an unremarkable wintery day of shopping followed by a kind gesture from a stranger. For Jeanette it began with the thrill of an illicit rendezvous with her lover. Both women had driven past the same icy ravine, but only one was in the car that caused a deadly crash, and only one left a man to die alone in the snow.

Each carried a secret from that day, a secret that, if revealed, could connect them to a larger, more terrible transgression… And there is someone out there who knows the whole picture, and who would rather kill than allow it all to come to lig

Travel Guide

The black ice of Gotland

Long dark roads that twist and turn around the mountains. The roads seem to disappear in to the darkness or the woods, its hard to tell. This is not an easy place to drive so no one should be going fast here, but someone does. A car drives off the road. Someone is left to die. Are there witnesses here? Here, in the middle of nowhere?

Outside it was already ark, The snow was whirling down in huge flakes , and the thermometer in the window was showing several degrees below zero.

Each carried a secret from that day, a secret that, if revealed, could connect them to a larger, more terrible transgression… And there is someone out there who knows the whole picture, and who would rather kill than allow it all to come to light.
