"RED SNOW is crisply-written, sly and exciting. Michael Slade is a writer whoclearly knows how to tell a story and make it real. A warning: it's not for thesqueamish, or for those who suffer from chionophobia (the fear of snow, red orotherwise)." - Robert McCammon, New York Times bestselling author of SWAN SONG,BOY'S LIFE, and the Matthew Corbett series.

Michael Slade's genius lies in being able toscare his readers to death by showing them, with perfect clarity, the terrifyingbanality of true evil, injecting psychotic nightmares into humdrum, everydayreality." - Jack Whyte, bestselling author of the Camulod Chronicles, the Templartrilogy, and the forthcoming Guardians series.
The 2010 Winter Olympics are coming to Vancouver, and Mephisto is ready to strike.
Of all the villains lawyer Michael Slade has created based on his experience in more than one hundred real-life murder cases, Mephisto is the maddest. ("Slade knows psychos inside out."— Toronto Star)
A raging winter storm and a team of mercenaries have cut Whistler Mountain off from the rest of the world. Bent on bloody revenge, Mephisto attacks the members of Special X—the psycho hunters of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police—and that's just the start of his horrific plan. Red Snow is a three-ring circus of mystery, horror, and suspense. It has everything: whodunits and impossible crimes, psychological terror and police procedure. Let the games begin!
