"David Lyons delivers a perfect blend of technology, plot, and character in a suspenseful and rewarding story that kept me wanting more. I look forward to more stories from this exciting new talent."--Andrew Peterson, author of "Forced to Kill"
"Grisham fans will enjoy."--"Publishers Weekly"
"There's action, budding romance, a bit of dry humor, and a plunge into New Orleans/Cajun culture. High society to Zydeco icehouse bars, Lyons covers the gambit. This should be a series worth following."--"Suspense Magazine"
"The plot centers on a substance (real) found in the Gulf, with potential to provide energy in enormous quantities. A very exciting first novel."--"Sullivan County Democrat"
"David Lyons' excellent debut thriller set in New Orleans speaks to the real world issue of the instability of our foreign oil suppliers and the ecological dangers of offshore drilling. . . . The references to the architecture of historic New Orleans, Cajun and classic cuisine and restaurants, and Southern culture greatly enhance the story. Readers will anxiously await the return of Jock Boucher."--"The Mystery Reader
""Ice Fire" is a thriller based upon the real life issues of renewable energy, natural resource protection, and ensuring our future as a species on this planet. It's also a stellar debut novel that paints a picture of the beauty and tragedy of New Orleans, even as it leaves the reader breathless."--"Mystery Scene Magazine"
"Introducing Jock Boucher, black Cajun federal district judge, who may be young and recently appointed but isn't afraid of ruffling feathers in his hometown of New Orleans. . .An auspicious beginning for a mystery series featuring one of the most agreeably easygoing heroes on this side of the Atlantic."--"Kirkus "
"From David Lyons comes "Ice Fire", a novel with almost clairvoyant timing, a fascinating plot and complex characters. It hits with style and power like the judge's hammer coming down at the end of a case."--Graham Brown, New York Times bestselling author of The Eden Prophecy
"David Lyons brings a fresh eye and sure hand to the thriller genre with his debut novel, "Ice Fire". Mixing science, corruption, and good ol'-fashioned murder into his plot, Lyons casts a colorful Cajun federal judge as a likable, unconventional hero in a story with environmental and political overtones. A nice bit of local Bayou color completes this promising debut. Look for more from Lyons--and hopefully his action-oriented justice, Jock Boucher--in the future."--Jim DeFelice, New York Times bestselling author of American Sniper and The Helios Conspiracy
""Ice Fire" is a fun, fast read. United States District Judge Jock Boucher is an unusual action hero, the plot about deep sea mining is original and the post Katrina, New Orleans setting is exotic. I look forward to reading Jock Boucher's next adventure."--Phillip Margolin, New York Times bestselling author of Capitol Murder
