Overview

Solving A Crime at A Ski Resort can be All Downhill! P.I. Regan Reilly has high hopes for her Aspen vacation. But a mystery soon has the chic detective snooping rather than skiing. Million-dollar paintings have been disappearing, and an old friend of Regan's-a folksy ex-con named Eben Bean-has vanished too. Everyone except Regan believes Eben has gone bad...again. Her hunt to find him leads away from the tourist crowd into the founding families of this former frontier town. She never expects to get in hot water with a wild and woolly seventy-something lady who has a shocking secret she'd die to keep. Or get in over her head trying to save a famous portrait a dangerous criminal would kill to steal. Now the snow is falling, the plot is thickening, and Regan is engaged in a different winter sport, one that's right up her alley-trying to catch a thief!

It's Christmas in Aspen and P.I. Regan Reilly is vacationing with her parents and hoping to meet an unmarried man. Soon, however, all thoughts of romance turn to sleuthing when million-dollar paintings start disappearing, along with an old friend of Regan's--who happens to be an ex-con. The snow is falling, the plot is thickening, and the danger is closing in on Regan.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In a continuation of the Regan Reilly series, the detective's Christmas holiday in Aspen is interrupted by the theft of some high-priced paintings. (June)
Library Journal
Clark's two previous mysteries, Decked ( LJ 7/92) and Snagged (Warner, 1993), sold well in spite of lukewarm reviews. In Iced , intrepid sleuth Regan Reilly encounters murder most foul while vacationing at a swank ski lodge.
School Library Journal
YA-Regan Reilly, private investigator, finds mystery on her Christmas vacation in Aspen, Colorado. She wonders who is stealing the paintings from wealthy owners as she doesn't believe that it's the person the police have accused. Readers know part of the answer, but they don't learn until the climax the surprising identity of the ``Coyote,'' who has been glimpsed throughout as he makes plans to steal from the thieves. This fun, fast-paced novel is a good choice for teens, who will enjoy the wit, the characters, and the modern setting. The text is mainly easy-to-read dialogue and there is plenty of action. Although there are many supporting characters and the chapters shift frequently between them, the plot is simple to follow as the mystery develops.-Claudia Moore, W.T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
Emily Melton
Given the huge popularity of Clark's first two Regan Reilly mysteries, plus the astonishing amount of hype her publisher is prepared to provide for her, plus the instant name recognition (Mom is superstar suspense writer Mary Higgins Clark), Clark can hardly fail with her third effort. Thirtysomething private investigator Reilly is headed for the ski slopes of Aspen for the Christmas holidays, parents in tow. Mom and Dad are to be houseguests of television actress Kendra Wood while Regan visits with an old friend who's opening a new restaurant. But the Reillys walk into more than just a cheery holiday ski party--Kendra Wood's valuable art collection has been stolen, and her trusted housekeeper, Eben Bean, is missing. That's all Regan needs to know to send her off in pursuit of Eben and the sneaky thieves. After assorted hijinks, adventures, false alarms, and--yes--plain old silliness, the plot finally gets all tied up in a nice, neat, mostly happy ending that will no doubt charm even the most Scrooge-like reader. Solidly entertaining, mostly clever, occasionally funny, and always fun, this one is sure to please the author's growing audience.
From Barnes & Noble
The bestselling author of Snagged & Decked adds a third suspense to her breezy detective series. This novel finds the unsinkable Regan & her mystery-writing mom in trendy Aspen & on the trail of crime when million-dollar paintings start to disappear from chic chalets all over town.

Meet the Author

Carol Higgins Clark
Carol Higgins Clark is the author of ten bestselling Regan Reilly mysteries, including Decked which was nominated as Best First Novel for both the Agatha and Anthony Awards. She is the daughter of America's # 1 bestselling suspense writer, Mary Higgins Clark, and they have co-authored four bestselling holiday suspense novels. Before turning to writing, Carol studied acting. She has recorded several audiobooks and received AudioFile's Earphones Award of Excellence for reading her novel Jinxed. She lives in New York City.

Biography

If Mary Higgins Clark is the Queen of Suspense, then her daughter, Carol, could be considered the Princess of the Pratfall for the quirky comedy she liberally sprinkles throughout her bestselling Regan Reilly mysteries. As a reviewer once said, "Mary Higgins Clark goes for the jugular; Carol Higgins Clark goes for the funny bone."

Clark's apprenticeship to her mega-bestselling mom began early on. In 1975, when she was a student at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, mama Mary was still working full time, supporting five children on her own while trying to get her fledgling career as a novelist off the ground. Daughter Carol did her part to help, pitching in between term papers and acting classes to peck away at her mother's pages on a manual typewriter, making savvy edits along the way.

She recalled to the Philadelphia Inquirer her early days as an unsung editrix of her mother's work: "In one of her books, Loves Music, Loves to Dance, she had a serial killer who was making dates through the personal ads and then killing the girls. So the best friend of one of the girls he killed is trying to figure out who might have done it, so she's going out on these dates. So I was reading it and going over it with my mother and she had all these bars in New York. I said, 'No one goes there, no one goes there.' So I changed all the bars and restaurants. And People magazine said in its review: 'Clark offers a well-informed tour of New York's singles haunts.' So that was my contribution to that book. But I was really learning a lot."

After a few acting stints in off-Broadway theater, movies, and television -- her first role was as an extra on the soap opera Ryan's Hope -- Clark decided to try her hand at writing her own novel. She conjured up a semi-autobiographical heroine, sleuth Regan Reilly (who just so happens to have a celebrity author mother), and Decked debuted in 1992, garnering nominations for both an Agatha and an Anthony Award for Best First Novel. Clark relishes researching each new Regan Reilly adventure, gleaning inspiration from real-life capers both daffy and decadent.

After establishing herself in her own right as a farcical force to be reckoned with -- all of her Regan Reilly novels hit the New York Times bestseller list -- Clark teamed up with her mother in 2000 to pen their first holiday-themed thriller, Deck the Halls. We think it's pretty safe to say Carol didn't have to do all the typing!

Good To Know

Some outtakes from our interview with Clark:

"My first job was at a dry cleaner's. You'd be amazed at what you find in people's pockets! All sorts of clues about their lives! I had a character in Iced who worked at a dry cleaner's."

"I started out as an actress, and that background has helped me with my books. I love going to the theatre."

    Regan Reilly Series

    I now have all of the Regan Reilly series in paperback and #3 was really an exciting read. I stopped watching tv to finish this book. I wish there were more writers out there like Caroll Higgins Clark.

    Good story - much better than some of her more recent books.

    I read Iced after I read some of her more recent novels, like Fleeced, Burned and Hitched. With the exception of Hitched and Laced, I think Carol's earlier books of the Regan Reilly series were better. The suspense and the twists in this novel as compared to the more recent stories are definitely better. If you've been disappointed in her novels lately, try reading this book and Snagged.

    This is the first Regan Reilly book I have read and the first book by this author. I enjoyed it so much, I just finished Decked and Snagged. It only took me about a week to read all 3 books! I just purchased Wrecked and can' t wait to start it!

    A pleasant read

    This is my first of this series. Was it a great book? No, not really. Will it become a new favorite? No, probably not. Would I read another? Maybe. It was a pleasant, light read. The characters were engaging enough, I might be inclined to visit them again

    Great book!!!!!!!!

    I really liked this book. But I have to admit she's not as good as her mother, Mary Higgins Clark.
