About this title

Synopsis:

Lawrence Block is best-known for his popular mystery series featuring bookseller/burglar Bernie Rhodenbarr and ex-alcoholic detective Matthew Scudder. But in the late 1960s and early 1970s, he created a globe-trotting adventurer with a highly developed taste for exotic locales--Evan Michael Tanner. Tanner's been on an extended vacation and, at last, Block has brought him back. Ever since his New Jersery assignment went awry in 1972, Tanner has--believe or not--been stuck in deep freeze. He has been thawed out however, and is ready to catch up on lost time. No sooner does he make himself available when he is recruited for another covert assignment destabilizing the government of Burma, the victim of a rebel movement. Exotic surroundings, drug trafficking, an exiled Russian beauty, and a mysterious dead man create an edgy and entertaining puzzle for Tanner to piece together. In a novel both zany and suspenseful, fans will finally learn where Tanner's been all these years--and where he's going next.

* Lawrence Block fans have been waiting for a new Evan Tanner mystery for 25 years.
* Signet will release the early Evan Tanner books in mass market editions.
* A teaser chapter of Tanner on Ice will appear in the Rhodenbarr mystery, The Burglar in the Library.

Review:

Evan Tanner, the spy who never sleeps, was placed in cold storage at the end of the Cold War--literally and figuratively. But in Tanner on Ice Block defrosts one of his earliest and best series heroes and sends him to Burma to stir up the guerillas, destabilize the country's authoritarian regime, and incidentally assassinate the Nobel Peace Prize-winning daughter of the country's national hero. Before long, Tanner's been set up for murder, drug smuggling, and blowing up Burma's most sacred shrine. Accompanied by a beautiful Russian/French/Vietnamese woman who wants out of Myanmar for her own reasons and has a dwindling cache of precious rubies to pay her way, he snakes through Burma disguised as a monk. Along their journey the two dodge SLORC trackers, insurgent Shan tribesmen, and the henchman of Tanner's mysterious spymaster. In Block's skilled hands, the much anticipated return of Tanner is a perfect summer hammock read. --Jane Adams
