En-route to the country town of Cransberry to take up his new duties, his route takes him over a moor where he becomes stranded in a sudden blizzard. Fighting his way through the snow, he rescues a girl from a car, and they seek refuge in a small hotel that appears to be closed down for the winter. They are joined by other refugees of the storm as night draws on. He takes a liking to the girl, Cherise Adams, who insists on being called Cherry, But all is not as it seems, and it becomes apparent to Mark that somebody in that hotel wants Cherry dead, and when he discovers the hotelier and his wife bound and half frozen in the hotel garage he realises that somebody is very determined indeed that Cherry will never leave that hotel alive. But who is the would-be killer? How will he or she make their final attempt? Mark is determined to thwart the unknown person’s plans, but in a game of wits played out during that long frozen night he is always one step behind, and then, as dawn is breaking, he has one final desperate chance of saving Cherry, but only at the risk of his own life.
