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.

    "Excellent writing/Excellent narration"

    If you are a reader of true crime, you will appreciate this book. Well-paced, never boring, great character development. The narrator is excellent, especially when portraying the various seedy characters!

    "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.

    "Riveting ... I couldn't stop listening!"
    What made the experience of listening to Ice and Bone the most enjoyable?

    Kevin Pierce made the experience of listenting to Ice and Bone enjoyable. Most enjoyable was how thoroughly this book was researched and the fact that was provided. I felt as if I were there.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I did not have one favorite character as Kevin Pierce made me love them all, with the exception of Shane Wade, only because of his criminal acts.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Pierce – was your favorite?

    As I stated above, Kevin Pierce did an exemplary job narrating this book and performing the characters. I could not pick just one because Kevin has the ability to draw you into each character and bring them to life for you.


    If you could give Ice and Bone a new subtitle, what would it be?

    I would not give Ice and Bone a new subtitle as the one already given clearly states what the book is about.


    Any additional comments?

    "Ice and Bone"

    “This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”

    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.

    "AMAZING"
    Would you listen to Ice and Bone again? Why?

    This is by far the best mystery narration I've ever heard. I was at the edge of my seat the whole time.

    "I like the narrator"
    Where does Ice and Bone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've heard this narrator on other books, and I really have come to appreciate his style.

    The book itself was good, and I will compliment the author on giving voice to the victims and their loved ones. Typically, we learn too little about them in books of this genre. Since reading the book, I've found myself very interested in Native Alaskan culture, and the social problems they face. It was something I was unaware of until recently.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The author's depiction of Della Brown's life brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion. His compassion for the victims really came through in the book.

    "Nice, solid true crime book"

    At first, I wasn't able to get into this book. But I kept at it and I'm glad I did. The author does an excellent job conveying the impact the murders of Della Brown and Mindy Schloss had on Anchorage and the victim's families. I Would have liked more about how the Brown murder impacted the Native community specifically. But overall, this is a well written, well researched true crime book.

    "Important True Crime Book"

    Francis shows in this book an angle not always highlighted in other true crimes works: the apathy of police to pursue killings of impoverished or marginalized people. One reason serial killers are so successful is that they prey on vulnerable, socially disadvantaged people, for the most part, and these are the type of cases that are the least likely to be pursued.

    "Chilling!"

    Monte Francis and Kevin Pierce deserve 5 starts for their efforts in bringing this story to the readers. I'm new to this genera, but really enjoyed this book...I recommend it.
    The story of Joshua Wade (and his victoms) is a bizarre one, but Francis wrote it well.
