Meg Gardner has served her time and is doing the best she can to get re-acclimated to society. She's got a new boyfriend, a comfy cottage, and one of the few jobs ex-cons can easily get in Missoula, Montana: repo lady. Though, as listeners soon find out in this thrilling audiobook from Jenny Siler, Meg's next job might be her last. What starts out as just a misplaced briefcase in the back of a jeep Meg repossess, quickly turns into a complex nightmare. Performed with a tight and energetic delivery by veteran narrator Betty Bobbitt, Iced is a dangerous tale of greed, disloyalty, and murder.
On the Jeep's backseat is a mysterious briefcase that is the catalyst for setting off a chain of events: A small-time Russian thief steals the briefcase. Then a knife wielding, tattooed lady comes looking for it. A scared Native American girl is in jail because of it. And lastly, a brutally delivered message tells Meg to find the damned case or her boyfriend dies. Suddenly her rosy-colored future is shattering like an ice statue hit by a sledgehammer. Desperate to protect what little she has, and driven by ghosts from her own past, Meg plunges ahead, and finds herself involved in a dangerous web of infidelity, greed, and murder.
