"In Keil's thriller, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Shawn Shaw is sent by billionaire James Berk to find Chuti Tiu---the smartest person on earth---ostensibly to offer her a $50 million prize; but things are not what they seem.
Berk, trustee of The Destiny Foundation, a mysterious group rumored to have operated in secret for hundreds of years, first approaches Shaw at Parnell's Pub in Midtown Manhattan. After Shaw hesitates, Berk eventually blackmails him and the pub's barkeep, Paddy, into searching for Tiu. Assisting them is Shaw's research assistant, Emma Jarvis, a bipolar woman with unique talents, and Paddy's wife, Kathleen, a nurse with skills of her own. . . .Keil injects just the right touch of noir with hard-drinking Shaw's medium-boiled narration: 'It all started only four weeks ago. I'm at my usual bar stool, third from the end, killing time and hoping for inspiration.' . . .A high-stakes, action packed conclusion starts a full 100 pages before the end and involves physical and cybermayhem, botched surgery, lobotomy, rape, death, and taxes. Throughout, Keil's spot-on characterization and skillful juggling of plot developments render the wildest bombshells logical and completely credible.
A smart, witty, captivating thrillfest packed with suspense, surprise, and awesome technology."
"Packed full of witty dialogue and fast paced across-the-country action, The Girl in the Freezer by Douglas Keil is clearly overlooked if not on the best seller list NOW. An excellent read."
