The Ice Harvest by Scott Phillips
Charlie Arglist is a seedy lawyer who runs a number of bars and strip clubs for local Wichita mob boss Bill Gerard. Charlie and his partner Vic have also been skimming profits from these mob owned businesses. They decide to leave town with the ill gotten goods on Christmas Eve 1979 after saying goodbye to friends and family. That's when the bodies start stacking up in this mildly funny, but wholeheartedly "hardboiled" tale of deceit, greed and irony. This fine debut melds elements of Noir with modern crime, mafia etiquette and tongue in cheek narration.
