Peter Craig goes to the mall with Ava (his wife), kids (Ellie and Jack), and Uncle Buster. Ellie and Jack are rambunctious seven-year-old twins. Ellie and Jack want to ride the electric train around the outdoor shopping center. Ava goes shopping and leaves Peter with Uncle Buster to watch the kids. It is cold as Hell outside, so he goes into the nearby bar to warm up. Peter just wants to watch a couple of minutes of a football game. He notices the time is stuck at 6:42, so he starts worrying about the missing time and his missing children. Peter goes back outside looking for his kids. Buster is gone and so are his kids.
Cold As Hell is short, yet memorable! I didn't know where this story was heading. Cold As Hell is full of twists and turns. The ending hit me like a ton of bricks!
