9780060176204: Deal on Ice: A Novel

John Deal's old friend Arch Dolan, owner of Miami's premier independent bookstore, is assassinated just days after the announcement that bookselling conglomerate Haskell & Monroe will open its biggest superstore yet across the street from Arch's shop. Clutched in the dead man's fist is a tract from the Reverend James Ray Willis, the suave, arch-conservative, multimillionaire preacher. Determined to bring his friend's murderer to justice, Deal uncovers the good reverend's large cache of hidden agendas, which, chillingly, include a plan to gain a stranglehold on the media-from books to the Internet. Rekindling his old partnership with his beautiful, troubled ex-wife, Janice, Deal strikes out for Willis's snowbound "maha headquarters " just as a pair of down-home assassins close in for an icy kill.

Review:

Of all the good action writers stumbling around South Florida in the shadow of Elmore Leonard, Les Standiford shows the most signs of growth and longevity. His John Deal is a contractor by trade, which gives him solid roots in the community, and the crimes he investigates are always connected to him by more than the accident of somebody walking into his office. This time the link is Arch Dolan, Deal's friend and favorite bookseller, killed just as a monster mega-store is set to open across the street. Standiford's last outing, Deal to Die For, is available in paperback--as are Done Deal, Raw Deal and Spill.
