Today’s team review is from Karen B, she blogs here https://sassyredheadbookreviews.wordpress.com
Karen has been reading Iraqi Icicle by Bernie Dowling
This book goes through the life of Steele Hill and the various things that happened throughout his life from 1986 until 1992. It goes through the various problems he had in his life and how he handled them. It includes the various characters that he hung out with, worked with and the police who were trying to frame him at one point. Steele seems to run into trouble a lot and his life is full of trouble and colorful characters
I give this book a 3.5-star review and would recommend it to readers who like suspense and are looking for something a little different. While the story was not a bad read, it was different than what I would normally read.
A dead actress, a dead gambler, a dead professor, a dead fisherman …
With murder following his every step, determined under-achiever Steele Hill is tangled in layers of intrigue and deviousness.
Pulled from his cosy world of the racetrack, the rock-music pub and the gambling den, everybody the wise-cracking Hill meets is in danger, as he is sucked into the undertow of forces beyond his understanding. One ally is a reclusive teenage maths whiz, channeling Hendrix, and tapping into military software and magic mushrooms.
The fix is in and the bodies are piling up.
