Pulled by a murder case back into the heart of her late husband's eccentric family during a harrowing Hamptons winter, Jackie Swaitkowski finds her principles of right and wrong challenged by criminal intrigues, a romantic prospect, organized crime and digital wizardry. By the award-winning author of Head Wounds.

McMillan Palgrave

Crazy weather, crazy artists, organized crime, and digital wizardry all play a role in a murder mystery that could only happen in the Hamptons.

It's the worst winter on record. Jackie Swaitkowski has made the transition from lackadaisical, pot-smoking real-estate lawyer to obsessive, pot-smoking criminal defense attorney. And now, not only are there blizzards to contend with, her ne're-do-well client is headed for a first-degree murder rap.

The case pulls Jackie reluctantly back into her late husband's extended, and famously outrageous, family. Complicating matters is a handsome journalist whose interest in Jackie exceeds the professional.Ice Cap marks the return of Jackie Swaitkowski, outlandish lawyer to the rich and criminal, by award-winning author Chris Knopf, who's been praised byPublishers Weekly for his "hard-boiled dialogue worthy of Elmore Leonard or John D. MacDonald."

Bechdel test pass! Our heroine is neither too cute, nor too tough. Good mystery. I'll look for more from this author.
