Publisher's Summary

On a clear, brisk night in September 2000, 33-year-old Della Brown was found sexually assaulted and beaten to death inside a filthy, abandoned shed in a seedy part of Anchorage, Alaska. She was one of six women, mostly Native Alaskan, slain that year, stoking fears a serial killer was on the loose. A tanned and thuggish 20-year-old would eventually implicate himself in three of the women's deaths and confess in detail to Della's murder.
Yet after a three-month trial, Joshua Wade would walk free. In 2007, when Wade kidnapped a well-loved nurse psychologist from her home and then executed her in the remote wilderness of Wasilla, two astute female detectives joined forces to finally bring him to justice.
Ice and Bone is the chilling true account of how a demented murderer initially evaded police and avoided conviction only to slip back into the shadows and kill again. Journalist and writer Monte Francis tells the harrowing story of what eventually led to Wade's capture and reveals why the true scope of his murderous rampage is only now, more than a decade later, coming into view.

Can you get away with murder??? Ummm, yea

Just as in some of the recent high profile crime cases, the culprit CAN literally get away with murder - depending on how good the lawyers and prosecutors are - despite the overwhelming circumstantial evidence and witnesses against the defendant. This is a prime example of "the best team wins"...not justice served.

Unfortunately, in one of these cases, it was a two card whammy...lesser experienced prosecutors AND the lack of hard physical evidence. An all too familiar scenario these days. This is the story of what can happen (and sadly, often does) in the aftermath of such a situation.

As usual, Kevin Pierce (narration) takes it right off the pages for me, making me FEEL that shock, anger, suspense and frustration....and has me behaving as if my ranting and raving is going to actually affect the outcome. Hahaaa. This was a VERY interesting story, and I enjoyed listening to every minute of it.

If you are a reader of true crime, you will appreciate this book. Well-paced, never boring, great character development. The narrator is excellent, especially when portraying the various seedy characters!
