Iraqi Icicle: Third Edition by Bernie Dowling

The fix is in and the bodies are piling up.

A dead actress, a dead gambler and that’s for starters.

With murder following his every step, determined under-achiever Steele Hill is tangled in layers of intrigue and deviousness.

Pulled from his 1980s cozy world of the racetrack, the rock-music pub and his favorite band in the world, the Go-Betweens, everybody the wise-cracking Hill meets is in danger.

One ally is a reclusive teenage maths whiz, channeling Hendrix, and tapping into prohibited military software and magic mushrooms.

Leaping off the shoulders of Joseph Heller's Catch-22, Iraqi Icicle is a wild and hilarious ride through the murky worlds of gambling, drugs, politics and rock’n’roll.

“Readers will appreciate the author's ability to render colorful characters and understated witty prose.”

– Publishers Weekly
