When three hunters find a crashed plane filled with cocaine, each one has their own reasons for taking it – one is in debt to some shady people in Las Vegas; the other has lost all of his and his client’s investments on Wall Street; and their guide is trying to save his ranch from being taken over by an energy company. This deep in the cold, Montana wilderness, there’s no one to interfere in each of their attempts to take the drugs for themselves. But, when two manage to succeed, they find themselves running from not only the cops, but a hitman for the cocaine cartel, a Yale MBA and Harvard graduate cartel boss, their guide, the DEA, and Las Vegas hitmen.

More than just a thriller, Snow lights up the complexities of American culture, the tensions of morality and obligation, and the human search for love and freedom, all of which makes it clear that Bond is a masterful storyteller. Exploring the psyche, and the depths of human reasoning and drive, Snow is a captivating story, sure to thrill and startle readers, keeping them on edge from the beginning of the first chapter, to the end of the last.
