It is Christmas Eve in Wichita, Kansas and snowing steadily. The streets are deserted, traffic is light and most people have returned home for the start of the festivities. But family get-togethers are the last thing on Charlie Arglist's mind, and home is the last place he needs to be. For Charlie has to get out of town. For good. In nine and a half hours, to be precise. But first there are just a few things he has to do..."The Ice Harvest" is a rollercoaster ride of double-cross, black humour and, very possibly, the last twenty-four hours in Charlie Arglist's life...

Scott Phillips is the national bestselling author of The Walkaway and The Ice Harvest, which was a finalist for the Hammett Prize, the Edgar Award, and the Anthony Award, and has recently been made into a film Starring John Cusack and Billy Bob Thornton. In the UK he has been short-listed for the CWA John Creasey Award and the Macallan Dagger Award for best crime debut. His latest novel, Cottonwood, was published by Picador in 2004. He lives in southern California with his wife and young daughter.Review:
'Quirky and deeply noir, The Ice Harvest is edge-of-the-seat stuff, but the tension's subtle and the humour's black. Like the film Fargo, The Ice Harvest oozes atmosphere' The Mirror 'This venture into white noir is very much in the league of masters like James M. Cain and Jim Thomson. Truly the real thing and a future classic. Stunning' The Guardian
