The Ice Beneath Her by Camilla Grebe

The Ice Beneath Her is a superbly written, deceptive thriller that blurs the lines between delusion, obsession and reality.  A woman is found brutally murdered in the home of a prominent CEO, but her identity is unknown. The hunt begins for the CEO’s whereabouts and speculation runs wild as to who the woman is and what the motive for her death could possibly be.  The story is told from multiple points of view and I must admit, moved a little slowly for me initially.  However, things picked up midway through and I could not put this book down.  Nothing is as it seems in this case, and it takes a team of detectives and an aging criminal profiler to put all the pieces of this puzzle together.  I did not like Peter’s character at all, so that knocked a star off the rating for me.   Other than that, I thought it was an excellent tale of obsession and love gone wrong.  4 out of 5 stars.  Many thanks to Netgalley and Ballantine Books for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.   I am now a fan of Grebe!!
