Detective Dave Strauss is still haunted by the one case he couldn't solve. A girl vanished off the streets of Brooklyn with only a trail of blood and a series of untraceable phone calls to hint at her fate. Now, the cold dark night has engulfed another girl-part of his own family. Dave and his wife know fourteen-year-old Lisa has not run away, and they know her disappearance is not a just a tragic coincidence. And once the first phone call comes, they know she's not alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME--THRILLER WITH HEART May 15 2006
By Ivy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved reading One Cold Night, it drew me in immediately and I couldn't put it down. My favorite character is Lisa, a fiesty teenager who is abducted but fights back. The story is full of twists and turns while her parents search for her, meanwhile facing a conflict in their relationship, which is suspenseful in itself. Basically this novel covers one very dramatic day and night in the journey of this family's life. This is a thriller with heart and soul. I highly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would have been a four but... Sept. 14 2006
By mahikahn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When 14 year old Lisa learns that her sister, Susan, is really her birth mother she runs from the loft she shares with Susan and Susan's NYPD detective husband Dave. When she subsequently vanishes Dave realizes it's eerily similar to the only unsolved case he's ever had, another teenage girl who disappeared a year ago.

The story was good, the plot fresh and while the characters could have been more fully developed, they were basically likeable. Dave was a caring man who was able to forgive Susan for her secrets and Susan was able to forgive herself for the choices she made when she was little more than a child.

The reason I gave it a three was the information about Bipolar Disorder, AKA Manic-Depressive Disorder. Such as: "criminals often had manic depressive tendencies, to say the least." "Rage and repentance, that was the usual cycle." In reality most people with mental illness are more likely to be the victims of crimes, not the perpetrators. The manic state of Bipolar Disorder is more often manifested as excessive excitement, enthusiasm and activity, rather than rage. The "depressive" state is more often characterized by sadness, despair, inactivity and withdrawal, not repentance. People who have mental illnesses, key word "illness", are not "insane", except in cases of a true psychopath. I'm Bipolar so not only do I have my own personal experience, I have done a lot of research. Mental illness is very misunderstood. If Ms. Pepper had done sufficient research she would have made it less so, instead of presenting a false picture.

Still, I would probably read another of her books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Page Turner May 14 2006
By Alex Conway - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the best thrillers I have ever read. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. But not only is it a page turner that takes place in 24 hours, I felt pulled into the lives of the characters. This is not a typical thriller filled with cliches, but a novel for people who enjoy good writing. I loved this book and look forward to checking out Kate Pepper's other novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review by Tammy for Fallen Angel Reviews July 3 2006
By Tammy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Susan Strauss has been keeping a secret from her husband and 14-year-old sister, Lisa, and has finally decided to come clean. When Lisa runs out the door after hearing the upsetting news, Susan decides to give her some space and let her have a little time to get used to the secret, except Lisa never returns home and Susan knows that Lisa would not have ran away.

Dave Strauss is a police detective that is on his way home when his wife calls to tell him that her sister, Lisa, hasn't returned home. He figures that the two women in his life just had an argument and Lisa would be home soon but with his previous unsolved case of a missing girl always on his mind, he decides to go looking for her. When Dave and Susan find evidence that Lisa has been kidnapped off the street and a phone call leads them to believe that the same man who took the girl in Dave's missing case has Lisa, they know that time is running out.

Kate Pepper knows how to turn up the suspense while leading you down a road with so many twists and turns that you never see what is coming. This story immediately starts with every parent's nightmare and keeps a swift pace until the very end. One Cold Night is a chilling tale that is sure to have you hanging on to every word, dreading what will come next, while also hoping for the best. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have added Kate Pepper to my list of favorite authors. If you love a great mystery with bold, rich characters and a surprise ending, this is the book for you.
