I am fascinated by locked-room mysteries set in wintry locales (check out Shari Lapena's "Unwelcome Guest" or Ruth Ware's "One by One") It may be the atmospheric setting (cozy inn, high-tech chalet, or luxury hotel converted from a former sanatorium-take your pick!), the claustrophobic effect of the weather (blizzards all around!), or the enforced intimacy between characters be they coworkers, friends and family or even complete strangers. Likely it is a combination of all three that makes a terrific thriller and "The Sanatorium" is a great escape!
