The Iceman’s Curse

The Ice Man’s Curse by Gary Jones has everything a great story needs, murder, mystery, love, and a thrilling plot. An iceman has been found in the Swiss Alps, and a Swiss professor smuggles the DNA samples into the US. Unfortunately, the suitcase that the DNA samples are in accidentally gets swapped with another suitcase that contains drugs. Grant, who was tasked with working on the ice man’s DNA samples, learns that those who have been around the body have been getting ill. Grant begins searching for the Swiss professor and DNA samples while Sybil, part of the CDC, also learns of the infected tissue samples. Both Sybil and Grant are put to the test when they are faced with finding the Swiss professor before Frank, the drug lord, finds him.  

From the moment I picked up this book, it took me by surprise. The mystery and suspense build page after page. Even though there are parts with some scientific terminology that some readers may not understand, it does not take away from the plot. The characters are believable, and I enjoyed following Sybil’s character. Sybil is spunky and has a great heart, hiding behind a tough exterior. I also appreciated that the author incorporated a female character in the field of science into the story.

The plot keeps you on your toes as you are on the hunt for professor Antoine hoping that the good guys find him first. In addition, Jones provides in-depth internal dialogue so that the reader is able to understand the motives behind each character’s actions, and we get an inside look into their thoughts.

The Ice Man’s Curse is a thrilling suspense and action novel. I highly recommend this fast-paced novel to those who enjoy a good medical mystery as the action and tension are throughout the story.
