MixedNew York Journal of BooksMuch of Thin Ice reads like a cozy with the same tone, tenor, and rhythm found in that popular mystery subgenre ... There are a few instances in this slow moving somewhat talky novel where the reader might question the validity of Beth\'s reaction to her circumstances. On the way to Benedict in a bush plane, having just escaped from the hospital, injured, in pain, and terrified, her demeanor seems a bit out of character. Even so, readers will sympathize with Beth, and be enthralled with the colorful descriptions of Alaska[.]
PositiveNew York Journal of BooksA quirk in the editing will jolt some readers out of the story ... For some reason, the editor has seen fit to use some peculiar contractions in the prose, contractions that work perfectly well when speaking, but are strange and annoying in prose ... One more thing. There seems to be a trend nowadays of inserting controversial, politically driven \'issues\' into fiction even though those \'issues\' have little or nothing to do with the actual story. That aside, Jeffrey Deaver has come up with another sharp, smart story with intelligent, emotionally mature characters. Plenty of twists and turns and subplots involving the techy world of internet gaming deftly handled by the author are sure to keep readers engrossed and turning pages to the end. Deaver is a joy to read.
