Tim Bowler’s supernatural thriller Frozen Fire is still popular several years after its 2006 publication. When Dusty hears the last words spoken by her missing brother, “I’m sorry, little, Dusty, Goodbye, little Dusty, from a stranger on the phone, she knows she should hang up, but she is transfixed.  The boy on the phone says he has taken an overdose of drugs and is dying. Dusty hears a noise that leads her to believe he is in the park across from her house and she goes out into a snow storm to find him.  The supernatural puzzle that evolves keeps Dusty following clues that she hopes will lead to her missing brother.  She is sure that the stranger has the answer and refuses to give him up to the police or the gangsters who are after him.  They say he is guilty of several horrible crimes, but she is not sure that‘s true.  This supernatural mystery will keep readers turning pages as the tension builds to a bizarre climax.  (Sharon Nehls for Colorado Blue Spruce Award, 2013)
