A mystery with magic, the Mob and a frozen beauty queen.


What if an author of pulp detective novels has to solve a real murder before he gets bumped off by the Mob?


Charlie McGinley writes detective novels. At least he did, until writer’s block kicked in. He owes his publisher a book, multiple wives alimony and several loan sharks are about to break his thumbs.


When Charlie hightails it out of L.A. two steps ahead of the police and his latest ex, he runs into Ben Fox, a mysterious Native American hitchhiker who just happened to know Hemingway – Charlie’s favorite writer.

Charlie’s life gets even more complicated when he and Ben get dragged into a murder at a cryonics lab, while attempting to avoid the police, not get killed by the Mob and keep a beauty queen from being frozen to death.
