"The sharp-edged humor in this fast-paced mystery, in which snow is a major player, features Minneapolis Detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth. Mel Foster is a clear narrator who easily portrays rookie Sheriff Iris Rikker of rural Dundas County, computer expert Grace MacBride, and various members of the Minneapolis PD. The darker developments of the double-murder investigation that takes place after the frozen bodies of two policemen turn up are rendered with dignity and empathy. Foster uses pacing, volume, and laconic, slightly humorous tones to capture the tension, emotions, and flow of this cleverly constructed and slightly bizarre procedural. S.C.A.
