Book reviews - Ice

Ice


Author: Ed McBain
Snow whips through the city’s streets like lethal daggers when a young actress leaves the theater after her latest performance. She walks home instead of taking the subway, and soon the snow on the ground is stained red with her blood. A cold, hard winter is blowing in, and it’s bringing greed and murder.

For Detectives Carella, Kling, Meyer, and Brown, the sudden storm that has covered the city in a suffocating sheet of ice is only the beginning of their problems. From a multimillion-dollar showbiz scam and diamonds spilling out of a dead man’s vest to a cold-hearted rapist prowling the streets and a stone-cold murderer on the loose, the frozen grip of fear is strangling the city. It is up to the men of the 87th to bring the heat.

Bestselling author Ed McBain pulls out all the stops in Ice, a classic installment of his famed 87th Precinct series that blends intense plotting, biting dialogue, and gripping suspense. The New Yorker hails Ice as “a real stunner!”
