Crazy weather, crazy artists, organized crime, and digital wizardry all play a role in a murder mystery that could only happen in the Hamptons.

It’s the worst winter on record. Jackie Swaitkowski has made the transition from lackadaisical, pot-smoking real-estate lawyer to obsessive, pot-smoking criminal defense attorney. And now, not only are there blizzards to contend with, her ne’re-do-well client is headed for a first-degree murder rap.

The case pulls Jackie reluctantly back into her late husband’s extended, and famously outrageous, family. Complicating matters is a handsome journalist whose interest in Jackie exceeds the professional.  Ice Cap marks the return of Jackie Swaitkowski, outlandish lawyer to the rich and criminal, by award-winning author Chris Knopf, who’s been praised by Publishers Weekly for his “hard-boiled dialogue worthy of Elmore Leonard or John D. MacDonald.”

Praise for Ice Cap

Praise for Ice Cap and the Jackie Swaitkowski series
 
“You’ve got to hand it to Chris Knopf: He knows how to have fun.… Wherever Jackie Swaitkowski goes, so goes the snappy dialogue.”—The East Hampton Star

"Whether Jackie or Sam takes the lead, Knopf’s ensemble mysteries are good entertainment."—Publishers Weekly

“Knopf has a knack for big opening scenes that set the tone for his danger-fraught plots and draw the reader into the dysfunctional world of Swaitkowski, who drinks too much, smokes pot, and attempts to evade too-close relationships.”—Library Journal

“[Knopf's] foremost achievement is putting damaged, cynical, determined, and, yes, romantic Jackie at center stage…. She’s sure to win your heart.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch

“[Knopf] tells a rollicking tale with lots of twists and turns, adding up to a great deal of enjoyment.”—The Washington Times

“Knopf has a touch I like---cool, careful, reflective---and a great ear for the comic eccentricities of the human voice.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
