Between 1976-77 four young people were kidnapped and murdered in the suburbs of Detroit. Dubbed the Oakland County Child Killer, it sparked the biggest manhunt in US history ushering in a wave of fear we came to know as “stranger danger”.

More than 40 years later, Children of the Snow revisits this baffling real-life whodunit and reveals what many thought was fact may have been fiction. Be prepared for a dark and unseemly world as we follow an author, a dogged detective, and the victims’ families as they uncover new leads and try to unravel before it’s too late—who killed those four kids.
