Snowblind by Christopher Golden
Summary (via the book jacket)
The small New England town of Coventry had weathered a thousand blizzards...but never one like this, where people wandered into the whiteout and vanished. Families were torn apart, and the town would never be the same.
Now, as a new storm approaches twelve years later, the folks of Coventry are haunted by the memories of that dreadful blizzard and those who were lost in the snow. Photographer Jack Schapiro mourns his little brother, Isaac, even as - tonight - another little boy is missing. Mechanic and part-time thief Doug Manning's life has been forever scarred by the mysterious deaths of his wife, Cherie, and now he's starting over with another woman and more ambitious crimes. Police detective Joe Keenan has never been the same since that night, when he failed to save the life of a young boy...and the boy's father vanished in the storm only feet away. And all the way on the other side of the country, Miri Ristani receives a phone call...from a man who died twelve years ago.
As old ghosts trickle back, this new storm will prove to be even more terrifying than the last.
Spellbinding in scope and rooted deeply in classic storytelling, Snowblind is a chilling masterpiece that is both Christopher Golden's breakout book and a standout supernatural thriller.
I read this in the middle of July in Iowa but I could feel the chill. That's really good writing.
This book wasn't on my to-read list, I got it from the library by mistake when I clicked on the wrong "Snowblind" in the catalog (the one on my to-read list is by Ragnar Jonasson and my library actually has both). Even though I discovered this before starting I read it anyway. I really am a random reader.
Quote from the Book
"How a grown man could vanish from the face of the Earth in the twenty-first century boggled her mind, but it had happened."
