From the back cover: Two murdered girls, and no motive…
While skiing deep in Lake Tahoe’s backcountry, Private Eye Dan Reno finds the first naked body, buried under fresh snow. Reno’s contacted by the grieving father, who wants to know who murdered his daughter, and why? And how could the body end up in such a remote, mountainous location? The questions become murkier when a second body is found. Is there a serial killer stalking promiscuous young women in South Lake Tahoe? Or are the murders linked to a different criminal agenda?
Searching for answers, Reno is accosted by a gang of racist bikers with a score to settle. He also must deal with his pal, Cody Gibbons, who the police consider a suspect. The clues lead to the owner of a strip club and a womanizing police captain, but is either the killer?
The bikers up the ante, but are unaware that Cody Gibbons has Reno’s back at any cost. Meanwhile, the police won’t tolerate Reno’s continued involvement in the case. But Reno knows he’s getting close. And the most critical clue comes from the last person he’d suspect…
I have not read the previous Dan Reno adventures so I had no idea of what was in store for me. Let me tell you this book begins with a bang and just keeps on going. Dan Reno is skiing and, literally, skis over a dead girl. He is a very observant person and he provides lots of details which will come in useful later. Later another girl is discovered leading to the possibility of a serial killer. The father of the first girl hires Dan to find the killer. Easier said than done. There are those that do not want him to succeed. Danger, mayhem, thrills and murder all figure into this highly complicated plot. Dan is a lot of fun and a highly interesting character. “Dark Ice” is loaded with twists and turns and red herrings that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Mr. Stanton has provided us with a fairly exciting book. I am glad I found this talented unique author and am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
