|Plot Summary of Ice|
|"This is a cop drama in McBain's 87th Precinct series. It's set in a fictional city in the northeastern US. A killer is on the loose and 2 detectives are out to find out who it is and how the deaths of a drug dealer, a dancer, and a jewelry salesman are linked together. There are various subplots and a full cast of cops working on other assignments. This is my first 87th Precinct book and it doesn't seem like you need to read them in any order, although past events were mentioned."
Shane Tiernan, Resident Scholar
