What the Critics Say

"Quintin Peterson's Cold as Ice, which features an O. Henry-like twist and a happy ending, has a downbeat feel, reminding us that victories wrought by violence are still losses." (Booklist, Keir Graff )

    "Good vs Evil"
    What did you love best about Cold as Ice?

    I think how the author drew you into the story itself. A wonderful job of giving inside information from a detective's point of view. The evil main character is the kind of guy you want to go down, but he is super elusive and untouchable in his mind.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Most definitely so. Without giving away the story in general, it leads you to believe it is headed in one direction and then on a dime it did a bizarre twist of fate. I didn't expect that at all.


    What about Jeffrey Kyle Carpenter’s performance did you like?

    I really liked his depiction of the main evil character in the book. His voice brought out the despicable nature of him vividly. In my minds eye, I could see this thug for all his worthlessness. A great job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moment of encounter at the comic book newsstand was the one that really stood out to me. Being the initial confrontation of the two characters, it planted not only the story line but also the contrasting differences between the two guys. It was very nicely done.


    Any additional comments?

    The author does a tremendous job of making a short story come to life in a big way!
