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.

A good true crime listen

This was a great true crime listen. The details were all there to bring the tale to life for the listener. As an avid true crime fan it was missing a certain something that would cause me to give 5 stars instead of 4, a little dramatic flair to the writing that makes it a "can't put down" kind of listen. But it was very well done, well researched, and definitely not boring. I would recommend for any true crime fan, or someone just starting to listen to the genre.

Kevin Pierce is a master narrator, he never gets less than 5 stars from me. He always has the perfect tone for the storyline and characters.

True crimes revisited. Sad tales of serial killer in Alaska. A good listen for true crime buffs, even though some vulgar language.

The narration was well done.
