In this Golden Age noir classic, a falsely convicted man is released from prison only to find he’s being framed for multiple murders In the 1930s, when pulp magazines like Black Mask reigned and noir fiction was in its heyday, mystery author Raoul Whitfield ranked with Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler as one of the genre’s heavy hitters. Widely acknowledged by those in the know as a pioneer of hard-boiled detective fiction, Whitfield wrote action-packed tales of murder and mayhem that noir aficionados adored. His debut novel, Green Ice, is considered by many to be his masterpiece. Mal Ourney has spent the last two years in Sing Sing for a crime he didn’t commit, taking the rap for a lady friend whose carelessness behind the wheel resulted in someone else’s death. Always a champion of the underdog, Mal has done his time quietly and without complaint while lending a sympathetic ear to the small timers who were unwittingly led into a life of crime by big-time, low-life gangsters. Now that he’s a free man, Mal’s got a plan to make the big guys pay. But he’s barely stepped through the prison gates when people in his life start dying, beginning with his ex-girlfriend. It seems someone is determined to frame Mal Ourney, and it has to do with a missing cache of priceless emeralds. Now the innocent ex-con will have to do some fancy footwork if he hopes to sidestep the electric chair. This ebook includes an introduction by Boris Dralyuk.

Browne’s riveting thriller, a down-on-his-luck American makes one last gamble to reap a fortune in the Colombian emerald business After years of stultifying office work, Joseph Wiley will try anything to get rich in a hurry.

When his latest moneymaker goes up in smoke, Wiley doesn’t even bother to quit his job. He takes every cent he has to the airport and flies south, landing in Colombia, where he will make his millions—or lose his life. In the mountains of Colombia, even an amateur can make a mint digging for emeralds, but an all-powerful syndicate, the Concession, controls the gems. Wiley and his new partner, heiress Lillian Holbrook, play a dangerous, double-crossing game with the Concession and its watchdogs because, for different reasons, they’re both willing to risk everything for the brilliant green stones.

Enger has done it again with Green ICE, the second book in the Lake House Mysteries series. She engages and holds the reader's attention to the riveting climax. She takes Brooke to places you don't want her to go. You want Brooke to stay put, to play it safe, and then she is off again letting her curiosity carry her into danger. J. Strom About the Author: IC Enger lives and writes in the Seattle area. IC has lived in many different cities in the US including New York, San Francisco, Denver and Seattle, and has travelled worldwide in her work. Part of that work kept her in close contact with former FBI agents and corporate security officers. "I quickly came to the understanding that although a crime might be solved outside of law enforcement by a smart, savvy civilian, it was highly unlikely. People who have been trained, who have the resources and experience, those are the people who solve mysteries."
