Ice on the Bay

Book Description

The forecast: Record cold. The crimes: Colder still.

*Case #1:*Hardworking veterinary technician Jayvon Fletcher was honest, friendly, and without an enemy in the world. But two Christmas Eves ago, while covering the night shift, he vanished, leaving behind only a broken window and smears of blood on the clinic's back steps. Neither police nor the private detectives hired by Jayvon's grandmother could find him. Now Detective Lieutenant Rick Peller is asked to take another look at the case, although he doubts he can shed light on the young man's fate.

Case #2: Detective Sergeant Corina Montufar puzzles over a fire in an exclusive area. The details are familiar—two other houses burned the previous year in exactly the same way. But police had nabbed the arsonist. He was already in prison when this new crime occurred. Is this a copycat crime, or is the real culprit still at large and this the next in a series of attacks?

Case #3: It's only mid-January, and already Detective Sergeant Eric Dumas is staring at Howard County's first murder victim of the year. Michio Tamai kept an address book overflowing with criminal cohorts. But even his friends were his victims. Not one of them is sorry he's dead. Any might be his murderer.

While temperatures plummet, cold cases collide with new crimes, and somewhere a killer with blood as icy as the waters of the bay watches and waits.

A thrilling crime drama, Ice on the Bay is the third of Dale E. Lehman's Howard County Mysteries. For more drama and thrills, check out the rest of the series: The Fibonacci Murders (Howard County Mystery #1) and True Death (Howard County Mystery #2).

Ice On The Bay by Dale and Kathleen Lehman is a marvellous contemporary murder suspense. It is the third book in the Howard County Mystery series but can be read as a stand-alone. Once again the reader is in for a gripping ride in this compulsive read. The police officers work together to get the job done. They remind me of the three musketeers with their dedication and their loyalty to each other. A cold case collides with present day crimes of murder, blackmail, arson and burglary. The cases run side by side as the reader tries to guess the connection, if any. Literally a jaw dropping ending that had me hooked and reading with heart racing. Not only is there great action but the reader really gets to know the characters – their back stories and their families. They are not just flat characters in a book but well developed 3D characters that leap out and engage the reader. Meeting up with familiar characters gave an air of consistency and a feeling of catching up with old friends. The police officers are very personable, the reader cares about what happens to them. The ‘baddies’ are well drawn too, eliciting feelings of dislike from the reader. For some, we recognise they are caught in a spiral of crime due to circumstances of their upbringing. For others we see the result of poor choices. These Howard County Mysteries are cracking detective novels. I think they would make a marvellous television mini-series. I am hoping there are many more books to come. Absolutely compulsive and nail biting reading. I received this book for free from The Book Gobbler. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
