'Tis the season for mistletoe and holly, Santa . . . and
suspense. And the gift that keeps on giving is Ice:
premier thriller author Linda Howard's breathless tale of
a man, a woman, and a battle for survival against an
unforgiving winter-and an unrelenting killer. Oh what fun
it is to read.
Gabriel McQueen has only just arrived home on holiday
leave from the service when his county-sheriff father
sends him back out again with new marching orders. A
brewing ice storm, and a distant neighbor who's fallen out
of contact, have the local lawman concerned. So he enlists
Gabriel to make the long haul to the middle of nowhere,
and make sure Lolly Helton is safe and sound. It's a trip
the younger McQueen would rather not make given the bitter
winter weather-and the icy conditions that have always
existed between him and Lolly.
But there's no talking back when your dad is the town's
top cop. And there's no turning back when night falls just
as Gabriel arrives-and discovers that the weather outside
isn't the only thing that's frightful. Spotting strangers
in Lolly's home-one of them packing a weapon-is all it
takes to kick Gabriel into combat mode. And his stealth
training is all he needs to extract Lolly from the house
without alerting her captors. But when the escape is
discovered, the heat-and the hunt-are on. And the winter
woods are nowhere to be once the ice storm touches down,
dropping trees, blocking roads, and trapping the fleeing
pair in the freezing dark.
