Les Standiford's Deal novels, including Presidential Deal, hit best-seller lists across the country like thunderbolts. Readers can't get enough of the adventures of contractor John Deal as he clashes with the twisted villains of the south Florida underworld. While Deal is trying to salvage his relationship with his estranged wife Janice, a string of murders rocks Miami. The first victim is independent bookseller Arch Dolan, Janice's boss. But the next two are more powerful figures in the publishing world. Deal and Janice become investigative partners, if not romantic ones. Their search to find out who is behind the killings will take them into the midst of a deadly battle for a media empire. Ron McLarty's performances of the Deal series have received rave reviews. The Midwest Book Review describes them as "a powerful blend of high crime and strong characters, fueled by Ron McLarty's flair for dramatic character inflections." After enjoying Deal on Ice, look for the rest of the series: Deal to Die For, Raw Deal, and Done Deal.
