Black Ice Bonus Chapters
Here are two bonus chapters from "Black Ice." These deleted chapters were cut from the final book but you might find them interesting.
Mable and the Laundry
Author’s Note: This is a deleted chapter from “Black Ice” that I ended up not using. I wanted readers to sympathize with May, Tom’s wife, and this makes her sound too weak and indecisive. Originally, May was going to be named “Mable,” and this would be the opening chapter of the book. Mable is cleaning her house and all of her clothes as she prepares to commit suicide. She assumes Tom has left her and can’t deal with the loss. I hope you enjoy this.
JOE TAKES A SHOT
Author’s Note: This is a deleted chapter from “Black Ice” that I ended up not using. Instead of the confrontation at the lake near the end of the book, I originally planned on having Joe ambush Frank—and the best place to do that, and take out some of the cops at the same time—would be to attack him at the police station. He’d cased the place and discovered a vantage point where he could attack the station and escape undetected. In this version of the story, Frank and the cops had figured out it was Joe earlier on and Joe was forced to go on the offense—against the entire police force.
