Dead On Ice by Lauren Carr

When poor Albert was found dead in his house under piles and piles of magazines and other things he couldn't throw away, an investigation began.  The investigation didn't begin just because of Albert's death but because a dead body was found in the freezer of his basement.  A body of someone who disappeared more than 20 years ago.

The investigation went from one character to another, and when I thought I had it figured out it turned out I was wrong each time....I didn't even guess the real murderer in the end.  That being said, there were so many characters in this book that I really couldn't keep track of who was who. 

The characters were comical in their own ways and likeable, though.  I would consider this book to have more of a theme of comedy and love along with an embezzlement going on in the middle of everything instead of a murder.

I like Ms. Carr's books about Mac Faraday much more than these characters, but perhaps they need to grow on me.  3.5/5

I received this book free of charge without compensation from the author in exchange for an honest review.


  1. It seemed too mixed up and difficult to follow even though it was comical.

  2. Thank you so much for reviewing Dead on Ice. Glad you enjoyed the comedy, even if you didn't figure out the killer.

    BTW, since you enjoy Mac Faraday so much, his next adventure comes out this Friday, January 11!


  3. This sounds like a fun book, even with all the characters. I will have to look for this one. Thanks for the great review, Elizabeth!

  4. You make it sound intriguing and worth a try...

  5. I've never read Lauren Carr's work, but I love a good mystery! Sounds like an interesting read. (:
