As John Farrow's Ice Lake opens, a corpse, shot through the neck, is found under the ice in a fishing hut on a frozen lake near Montreal. He also reveals intimate knowledge of the diverse power groups that drive the novel's plot: the biker gangs, the Mohawk Warriors, the Mob, the bigwigs in the lucrative pharmaceutical industry looking to cash in on an AIDS cure, the various police forces with their petty animosities and territorial conflicts.

Ice Lake, by respected Canadian novelist Trevor Ferguson writing as John Farrow, follows City of Ice, which introduced the brilliant and charming, moody and maddening police detective Emil Cinq-Mars, a maverick in the Montreal PD, whose heart harkens back to an earlier time in the city's.

I find Detective Emile Cinq-Mars fascinating and I actually prefer a setting outside of the United States, in this case Canada. It's the dead of winter in a region that Farrow (a pseudonym for literary author Trevor Ferguson, whose critically acclaimed novels include The Fire Line) knows like the back of his hand: its back alleys and distant suburbs, its ethnic diversity As John Farrow's Ice Lake opens, a corpse, shot through the neck, is found under the ice in a fishing.

Once everything becomes chronological, the novel turns into a Hitchcockian tale of betrayal and competing interests, where the audience sees more than any of the individual characters do, and suspense is generated by knowing who the bad guys are and watching as the good guys are gulled (or killed) by them.

Ice Lake is the second novel by John Farrow in the Émile Cinq-Mars series. This novel opens with a dead body discovered under the ice on a frozen lake under a fishing hut in Montreal. In the bitter cold of the dead of winter, Sergeant-Detective Émile Cinq-Mars must figure out who shot this man through the neck. He has a pretty good idea that the man was lured out to the lake by an unknown woman. The identity of the woman is something Cinq-Mars must find out for himself. This book incorporates colorful characters and groups, as well as contemporary themes.

It was not permitted, however, to treat the merely sick with drugs that had not come through government channels and had scarcely been tested on live rats, let alone humans. Competitors could embark on similar designs, and the advantage of a head start might slip away if a rival happened to get lucky. Any spectacular result hoisted a red flag and brought attention where it was not desired.

Lured to a frozen lake, Montreal detective Émile Cinq-Mars comes face to face not with the unknown woman who asked to meet him there, but with a corpse floating under the ice. Something tells him that his nose is being rubbed in this murder - and that this is about to get very personal. In this follow-up to the classic City of Ice, Cinq-Mars must determine the difference between would-be friends and deadly enemies - before it’s too late.

A woman discovers a frozen corpse under the ice in her fishing shack—coincidentally, on the same lake where Detective Cinq-Mars is enjoying an afternoon of ice fishing with his partner just a few shacks away. In this keenly intelligent, strikingly original new novel of suspense John Farrow once again creates a colorful, convincing tableau replete with criminals, cops, corrupt scientists, and dogged activists, all caught up in an intriguing and deadly battle between two big pharmaceutical companies on the trail of an AIDS vaccine. Lured into the fray by an anonymous phone call as deaths begin to mount all over the East Coast, Cinq-Mars must call upon all of his resources to crack the case before he himself becomes its next victim. Gripping, starkly realistic, and tantalizingly complex, Ice Lake astonishes with its deft, assured plotting, fully realized characters, and bone-chilling suspense. With this second thriller John Farrow joins the likes of Michael Connelly and Kathy Reichs as one of the most compelling voices in sophisticated crime fiction.

Love this series.
  • Fast Lovebird
The ice-ridden locale is ideal for the cold hearts at play here. The lake is a frozen wasteland where danger and confusion, snow and ice, compete in masking and unmasking and masking again a criminal conspiracy that is tundra vast. What we don't know is this: Saint Lucy, dupe or conspirator?
Lucy's lover and partner in crime is found dead underneath an ice hole in a fishing shack on the lake, (but who is he, really?). Nefarious Québécois mobsters, police from competing jurisdictions, industrial spies, a femme fatale in Camille Choquette, who makes Lizzie Borden look a sweetheart, all skate in biotech espionage, psychopathic murder, Indian Warrior politics, crime syndicates, and the coldest hearted capitalism.

This series should be in print and available everywhere. Cinq-Mars is less lovable than Gamache, but these are fast-moving stories with an interesting Montreal background.

The book was great. It grabbed your attention from the first page. I hope the author writes more of Cing-Mars books.
