The feeling of time and place is immaculate, almost as if different people have written each of the two interlocking noir stories of money, greed and living in the grey world between what's legal and what's not - and Gunther's on the lam, looking for money he's already spent...Reseña del editor:
The Ice Harvest, one of the most acclaimed noir debuts of 2000, is now followed by The Walkway - both its prequel and sequel. Sidney's stepfather, Gunther Fahnstiel, got lucky in The Ice Harvest.

Sidney has prospered since his days running the bar at the Sweet Cage; he's now the owner, in fact, and strip clubs are big business. So a 12,000 dollar reward is posted for Gunther's safe return. The only problem is Gunther's just run into the daughter of an old flame and memories of dark deeds from decades before begin to surface...
