"ICE is a strong start to a new series that will have fans of Lauren Carr thrilled to be introduced to another set of memorable and entertaining characters. Carr's Geezer Squad has brought sexy back to mature men and women, whose kickass attitude and smarts sizzle as they melt the clues to those cold cases!" Laura Fabiani, Library of Clean Reads
"Lauren spins an amazing web of lies, murder and love that will have you on the edge of your seat...I love the way Lauren spun this novel - I could not put the book down! I had to know what happened to Sandy and her unborn child and how this disappearance was tied into a string of other murders. I never saw the end coming but it was perfect and suited the novel. A definite must read novel!" 5-Star Review by Carla at Working Mommy Journal
"An enthralling story, ICE follows a former FBI agent who joins forces with a group of retired specialists who solve cold cases. As they search out clues from crimes in the past, dark secrets will finally be brought to light, thawing out cases that were once ice cold.
A dark shadow hangs over Chris Matheson's head as he settles back into the small town he grew up in. The small town the recent widower brought his three girls to thinks he had something to do with the disappearance of Sandy Lipton. Matheson soon makes the acquaintance of a small group of retirees who pride themselves on thawing out cold cases.
" Disguised as a book club, the self-named Geezer Squad, whose number one rule is to never talk about the squad, boasts a broad set of skills, courtesy of its members, all former law enforcement agents. They welcome Chris, recently retired from the FBI, with open arms, working with him to close numerous cold cases--including, hopefully, Sandy's disappearance.
"ICE will engross readers from beginning to end. The various mysteries are intricately woven together, leaving one guessing and turning pages to find the answers. Chris has a great, distinctive character arc. Readers will want to continue with the series just to find out more about Chris and his involvement with the Geezer Squad. While at times difficult to keep track of, the numerous colorful supporting characters, with compelling backstories and witty humor, added depth to the narrative. There is a nice romantic element that rounds out the story nicely.
"With memorable characters and gripping suspense, ICE will leave readers eagerly awaiting the next installment." 4.5-Star Review of Ice by The iRead Review
"Multiple cases, multiple villains, and a mighty geezer squad to help gather information for the police and the FBI! Carr continues to up the stakes when you read her books. With this book and the number of bodies involved, I didn't even try to determine whodunit! This first in series has set the framework for a wide diversity of future novels. I'm already anxious to move on to the next and this one is not even out! Carr's ability to successfully integrate amazing characters into a solid family and community environment of loving individuals is truly amazing. The unique touches for each character, including the animals, reveals a loving, caring writer that works to ensure her readers are pleased with the world in which they have entered, and when finished, wanting more!" 5-Star Review of Ice by Glenda Bixler, Book Readers Heaven
They Say No Good Deed Goes Unpunished. Such Is The Case For Chris Matheson.
When Sandy Lipton And Her Unborn Child Disappeared, The Court Of Public Opinion Found Young Chris Matheson Guilty. Decades Later, The Retired FBI Agent Returns Home To Discover That The Cloud Of Suspicion Cast Over Him And His Family Has Never Lifted In This Mystery Novel from Lauren Carr.
With The Help Of A Team Of Fellow Retired Law Enforcement Officers, Each A Specialist In Their Own Field Of Investigation, Chris Matheson Starts Chipping Away At The Ice On This Cold Case To Uncover What Had Happened To Sandy And Her Baby And The Clues Are Getting Hot!
"Narrator Mike Alger deftly conveys this involved story replete with diverse characters, making audio the preferred format for it. Chris Matheson was unjustly accused of murdering his girlfriend 24 years ago. Now, having returned home to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, he's distressed to learn that many people still believe he's guilty. Alger's Matheson is believable as he tries to prove his innocence with the assistance of the Geezer Squad, a group of retired former law enforcement officers who are surprisingly helpful. Most entertaining is Elliott Prescott, whose raspy voice and bulldog determination make listeners thankful he's on Matheson's side. When members of the Geezer Squad talk over each other, it's hilarious, and colorful descriptions of the locale, along with clever detecting methods, create atmosphere. A satisfying conclusion adds to the fun." - Review in Audiofile Magazine
"For the whodunit murder mystery buff who loves ever-increasing suspense and danger, Lauren Carr's newest series of mystery books featuring the Geezer Squad offers up a big dose of both. Murder and mayhem seem to be Chris's new companions after returning home following the loss of both his wife and his father. Juggling the parenting responsibilities of his three daughters with his mother is not something Chris was expecting at this point in his life, but life isn't something that goes as planned." 5-Star Review at Blooming with Books
