Synopsis

Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town -- the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Not so, lately. Four women have disappeared from Cleary over the past two years.

And there's always a blue ribbon left near the spot where each of the women was last seen. There are no bodies, no other clues, and no suspicion as to who their abductor might be. And now, another woman has disappeared without a trace.

It is to this backdrop that Lilly Martin returns to close the sale of her mountain cabin, marking the end of her turbulent eight-year marriage to Dutch Burton, Cleary's chief of police. Dutch's reluctance to let her go isn't Lilly's only obstacle. As she's trying to outrun a snowstorm, her car skids on the icy road and strikes a man who emerges from the woods on foot.

She recognizes the injured man as Ben Tierney, whom she'd met the previous summer. They're forced to wait out the storm in the cabin, but as the hours of their confinement mount, Lilly begins to wonder if the greatest danger to her safety isn't the blizzard outside, but the mysterious man right beside her.

Is Ben Tierney the feared abductor? Or is he who he claims to be...her rescuer from harm and from the tragedy that haunts her?


故事梗概

北卡罗莱纳州的科里里是一个寂静的小山村。在那里,最严重的犯罪行为恐怕就是违规停车了。但是,最近可并非如此。在过去的两年中已经有四位妇女失踪了。



离现场不远,在每位失踪妇女最后出现的地方,总会发现一条蓝色的丝带。那里没有尸体,没有其他线索,也无法猜测是谁诱拐了她们。现在,又一名妇女消失了,而警方毫无线索。



就在这时,莉莉·马丁结束了与丈夫长达8年的婚姻生活,回来关闭山间小屋的营生。她的丈夫达什·伯顿是科里里的警官,他们经常争吵。达什阻拦莉莉的离开并不是莉莉回山路上的唯一障碍。在暴风雪中,她的车在冰路上打滑失控,撞到了一个从树林中走出来的男人。




她认出这个男人其实名叫本·蒂尔尼,去年夏天他们曾经见过面。他们不得不在小木屋中躲避暴风雪,但是随着时间一小时一小时地过去,莉莉开始意识到最大的危险并不是外面的大风雪,而是她身边的神秘男人。





本·蒂尔尼是否就是令人害怕的诱拐者呢?还是他自己所说的那样,是她的拯救者呢?
