Hard freeze : a Joe Kurtz novel

Revenge has never been served so cold. Joe Kurtz, former investigator and convicted felon, is on parole. But the years he spent in Attica didn't make his old haunts any safer. Back on the streets of Buffalo, he's already marked by a local Mafia don. As if watching his back weren't enough work, Kurtz has also been hired by a gravely ill John Frears, whose daughter met a grisly fate at the hands of a murderer. Frears wants one thing before he dies: for Kurtz to find the fiend that the authorities couldn't. But the calculating killer -- a master at changing identities -- has a little unfinished business of his own. Dodging a contract on his head and tracking a serial killer on the loose, Kurtz plunges headfirst into the icy waters of revenge as both victim and avenger.

  • "Privatdetektiv Joe Kurtz bläst ein eisiger Wind entgegen. Und das liegt nicht nur am bitterkalten Winter in Buffalo. 'Little Skag' Farino, der Juniorboss eines örtlichen Mafia-Clans, will Joe aus dem Verkehr ziehen und setzt eine Horde von mehr oder minder begabten Killern auf ihn an. Seine attraktive Schwester Angelina verfolgt unterdessen ganz eigene Pläne mit dem Schnüffler - nicht alle sind so romantisch wie die gemeinsame Liebesnacht ... Dan Simmons schickt Privatdetektiv Joe Kurtz in sein zweites Abenteuer. Noch spannender, noch erotischer, noch explosiver ... Booklist: "Simmons schreibt Actionszenen, die den Leser zwangsläufig mit schweissnassen Händen an den Buchseiten kleben lassen." Joe R. Lansdale: "In Bitterkalt stellt Simmons die Regeln des traditionellen Krimis auf den Kopf. Verpassen sie das auf keinen Fall." Publishers Weekly: "Hannibal Lecter trifft auf den Paten. Brutal, rasant und reich an Leichen, Blut und Explosionen. Dieser Vollgasthriller wird sowohl Fans harter Kost als auch Simmons-Fans begeistern." Dean Koontz: "Dan Simmons schreibt brillant." Stephen King: "Vor Dan Simmons habe ich Ehrfurcht.""
