Spunky Cameron Gates is tasked with solving the murder of Cherry Pickens, a legendary star of pornographic films, whose body turns up in an abandoned freezer. The case has a personal connection to her lover, Joshua Thornton, because the freezer was located in his cousin's basement. It doesn't take long for their investigation to reveal that the risqué star's roots were buried in their rural Ohio Valley community, something that Cherry had kept off her show business bio. She should have kept her hometown off her road map, too - because when this starlet came running home from the mob, it proved to be a fatal homecoming.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
I've enjoyed other Lauren Carr murder mysteries and this one is fine, but it is not up to Lauren Carr's normal standards. Dead on Ice is set in West Virginia and nearby Pennsylvania with the protagonists being PA state police homicide detective Cameron Gates and her lover prosecutor Joshua Thornton. When Thornton's relative and wildly successful elderly lawyer dies of an accident in his own cluttered home investigation finds the body of a female ex-porn star in his freezer. It is a clever plot and is well worth a listen. The narrator is a bit too enthusiastic and upbeat for the material. I will complete the 3 novel series.
