By Shawna Mayer Iced is an engaging novel. Iced by Robert Grindy, Livingston Press: His novel is about a writing professor who is writing a novel he titles Iced about a writing professor. Literature lovers will recognize references to various well-known works.
It will also gratify anyone jaded by academia. The central character, Henry Streator, is burned out. He misses his ex-wife, who left for a plum teaching job out of state. Students who turn in assignments late or rarely show up to class. Then shortly after, the student is found dead in what appears to be a single-car accident on an isolated country road.
They issue an ultimatum. With his job on the line, he can see only one way out -- to write something that will make money. The only idea he has belonged to his dead student.
Inspiration born of desperation spurs Streator to steal the idea and write the book. With no job, and his book deal in danger, Streator starts to investigate the two strange deaths.
Many remember Streator from before his divorce, when he was an engaged and passionate teacher, and are willing to share what they know. This information leads him further down a road which may get him killed. As Streator puts the pieces together, the plot picks up speed like a freight train of processed corn products headed to market.
The book skillfully belies common mystery tropes. Streator discovers more depth in the community than his original cynical assumptions permitted.
Good still exists in his stinky town on the prairie, enough perhaps for the professor to ultimately redeem himself. Shawna Mayer is a writer of short stories, a poet and an editor.
