After an early spring thaw on the Alaskan coast, Anchorage police discover a gruesome new piece of evidence in their search for a serial killer: a dismembered human foot.
In Kincaid Park, a man is arrested for attacking a female jogger. Investigators believe they have finally have their suspect. But one deputy is sure they have the wrong man.
In the remote northern town of Deadhorse, Alaska, Supervisory Deputy US Marshal Arliss Cutter escorts four very dangerous handcuffed prisoners onto a small bush plane en route to Fairbanks. Cutter’s expecting a routine mission and a nonstop flight—or so he thinks. When the plane goes down in the wilderness, all hell breaks loose. The prisoners murder the pilot and a guard and torch the plane. But their nightmare’s just beginning. Back in Anchorage, deputy Lola Teariki has traced the dismembered foot to a missing girl—and the serial psychopath who slaughtered her.
It’s one of the prisoners on Cutter’s flight…
Now it’s a deadly game of survival. With no means of communication, few supplies, and ravenous grizzly bears and wolves lurking in the shadows, Cutter has to battle the unforgiving elements while the killer wants his head on a stick. Here in Alaska, nature can be cruel—but this time, human nature is crueler…
“Well-developed characters complement the nonstop action. Cameron viscerally conveys Alaska’s austere beauty as well as its unexpected dangers.” – Publishers Weekly

Praise for Cold Snap
“Cold Snap by Marc Cameron is another riveting novel featuring his main character, Deputy US Marshal Arliss Cutter. The author worked in law enforcement as a US Marshal, so he keeps the plot realistic. Cameron puts the reader in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness. They feel the wind at their face, and the bitter cold from the downpour of snow. Animals also become a factor with wolves and an 800-pound grizzly bear trying to get their next meal. There is no means of communication, few supplies, and prisoners who want nothing more than to kill Cutter. He must use all his skills to protect himself and others found in the wilderness. The plot and characters are enthralling.”
“Bestseller Cameron’s exciting fourth novel featuring quick-thinking Deputy U.S. Marshal Arliss Cutter (after 2021’s Bone Rattle) takes Cutter once again from his home state of Florida to Alaska… Cameron piles on the complications in the thrilling finale, played out in a remote wilderness setting, with an icy storm on the horizon and a hungry 800-pound grizzly looking for his next meal. Well-developed characters complement the nonstop action. Cameron viscerally conveys Alaska’s austere beauty as well as its unexpected dangers.”

—Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW on Open Carry
“Spectacular on all fronts…The action is fast-paced and will have you glued to each page. The way the author describes the austere and beautiful Alaskan landscape makes you feel like you're really there. The protagonist is captivating and the supporting characters each carry the story in their own ways. But perhaps the greatest feather in the cap of this novel is the emotional depth, which brings a rare degree of realness to the novel…Marshall Cutter is everything you'd want in a U.S. Army Ranger-turned-law-enforcement-officer. He's stoic like the star of a Western film, he's crafty like a modern-day Sherlock Holmes, and he always takes the most practical route in stopping criminals…I can honestly say that this novel was one of the best I've read in a good long while and it will keep you hooked—page by page, chapter by chapter.”
—We Are The Mighty on Open Carry

His understanding of the ins and outs of small Alaskan communities makes for a rich sense of time and place. Readers can only hope they won’t have long to wait for Cutter’s third outing.”
