Publisher's Summary

Revenge has never been served so cold.

Joe Kurtz, former investigator and convicted felon, is on parole. But the years he spent in Attica didn't make his old haunts any safer. Back on the streets of Buffalo, he's already marked by a local Mafia don.

As if watching his back weren't enough work, Kurtz has also been hired by a gravely ill John Frears, whose daughter met a grisly fate at the hands of a murderer. Frears wants one thing before he dies: for Kurtz to find the fiend that the authorities couldn't. But the calculating killer - a master at changing identities - has a little unfinished business of his own. Dodging a contract on his head and tracking a serial killer on the loose, Kurtz plunges headfirst into the icy waters of revenge as both victim and avenger.

What the Critics Say

"Simmons' novel uncoils into a deliciously brutal chess game between a chameleon serial killer and ex-con PI Kurtz...action scenes that'll leave your hands clammy on the page." (Booklist)

"A bristling climax...Kurtz makes a riveting protagonist for the noir-is-beautiful crowd." (Kirkus)

"Simmons at his hard-driving best....[A] high-octane thriller." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Solid 5 Star Story and Performance"

    I've been reading Dan Simmons books for years and his work has NEVER disappointed me. Hard Freeze is Book two in the Joe Kurtz series and the story is fantastic. Great character development (as usual) and non stop thrills from the opening paragraph until the very last syllable. The audible narration was spot on perfect for this series.

    His Joe Kurtz series reminds me of works by Elmore Leonard, another great author of crime stories. If you enjoy Elmore Leonard, Vince Flynn, or Thomas Perry and you will **love** Joe Kurtz. If you enjoy thrillers additional titles to check out include: Term Limits by Vince Flynn, Without Remorse by Tom Clancy, and Butcher's Boy by Thomas Perry.
