As Pure As Snow: A Gripping Tale of Tragedy, Revelation and Reckoning is a work of fiction in the interpersonal drama subgenre. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Cory Maddalena. Set in an industrial town years after a disaster in a steel factory results in the deaths of eight hundred people, the book follows several characters as the effects of the disaster continue to damage the community. As they search for answers in the wreckage of the factory and their lives, the dangerous secrets that have been kept threaten to bring yet more tragedy into their lives.
As promised by the title, this book very quickly got its hooks into me and had me gripped, unable to put it down as each chapter left me keen to find out what happened next. Author Cory Maddalena has created an intricate and absorbing mystery at the heart of this thriller, and the web of characters' lives that surrounded it was incredible to witness expand and develop as the story went on. Each of the characters that formed a part of this tapestry was wonderfully nuanced and presented, every one of them feeling like a living organic creation who enhanced the story with their ambitions or flaws. Overall, As Pure As Snow offers up a compelling and complex tale about the aftershock of tragedy and the way that a major disaster continues to affect the people it touched long after the dust has settled. A powerfully told tale of suspense and drama, I recommend this book to all.
