Green Ice from the Author: Raoul Whitfield. 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.

Green Ice from the Author: Gerald A. Browne. In New York Times–bestselling author Gerald A. 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. He’s hustled all kinds of products, but each venture has left him deeper in debt, chained tighter to his office desk. 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.

Green Ice from the Author: Jane Ritzenthaler. When it happened the third night in a row, she knew it couldn't be a dream. As Andrea awoke at 3:00 A.M. in a cold sweat with her heart pounding, she remembered the images that had been thrust into her sleep: her twin sister, Alicia, sitting at a rough wooden table in some sort of stone room, calling her name. Like most identical twins, they had been extremely close while growing up, sharing similar likes and dislikes, and taking for granted that unique kind of communication they had. But how did she explain what was happening now? Because Alicia, along with their father, had been dead for over five months, killed in an explosion and fire in the chemistry lab at the National University in Medellin. Follow Andrea as she gets swept into the intrigue of Colombia's emerald barons and Pre-Columbian art.
