From the Back Cover:

What the Critics say About Other Gil Yates Private Investigator Novels

"Inventive, quirky...charm oozes from his pages."
--Publishers Weekly about The Missing Link

"The plot capitalizes on his eccentric behavior, naïvely
humorous predicaments, and lucky breaks."
--Library Journal about The Unlucky Seven

"Boyle's clever storytelling and deft writing are a treat once
again...For lighthearted, witty whodunits, it doesn't get much
better than this." --Booklist about What Now, King Lear?

"Hilarious adventures. Gil, with his quirky sense of humor,
tendency to mangle the English language, and innate
intelligence, manages to finally unravel a mystery with a
surprising solution."
--Mystery Scene about What Now, King Lear?

"Boyle's off-the-wall humor and unadorned, concise prose is
refreshing...the book moves along swiftly as a good mystery
should, and should satisfy those who enjoy Alfred Hitchcock or
Ellery Queen anthologies."
--ForeWord magazine about Bluebeard's Last Stand

"Boyle remains true to his peculiar form (think Carl Hiaasen in
Southern California); in fact, the banter is so much fun one
wishes Boyle would give Gil another 100 pages or so per
outing."
--Booklist about They Fall Hard

From the Inside Flap:

A rich, famous and difficult heart surgeon hires reclusive investigator Gil Yates to prove that his department store owner son-in-law did not commit suicide by jumping off the store roof. Yates, a cliché-busting, amateur P.I. with exorbitant contingency fees, reluctantly jets across the country to take the case. Although both the police and local private detective maintain there is no evidence of foul play, the doctor doesn't take no for an answer. Yates' investigation eventually leads him to the stunningly beautiful widow, an assistant with ulterior motives, and a cast of colorful characters you won't forget.

The Ice Maiden Cometh Not is the ninth exciting Gil Yates mystery by Alistair Boyle.
