While David Ramus's characterization of Ben Hemmings, a decent man trapped by forces bigger than he is, is outstanding, the scenes of prison life are among the best in the book. That may be due to Ramus's firsthand knowledge of the world behind bars: he was a high-stakes art dealer in the '80s who got involved in drugs, corruption, and federal investigations. Having rehabilitated himself with two other solid thrillers (The Gravity of Shadows and Thief of Light), Ramus scores a bull's-eye with this one. - -Jane Adams. Ben Hemmings is that rare animal, an innocent man in prison.

An innocent man convicted of a crime he didn't commit finds a way out of prison just before his whole world-wife, kids, and business-goes to hell.

I am 14 year old reading this novel and I love it. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 18 years ago. I can not put the book down, its wonderfullly written from what I read so far. I am not even barely aware that i am in my room when reading this,it keeps my attention and it does not stay on one thing for to long. I like the way Mr. Ramus describes the characters. Its got everything I like, the horses, the fights, suspense, and a little bit of romance.

I don't know what got into me. I have never bought a hardcover book by an author I've never read before, but a saw a review in the local paper that praised this book and the premise intrigued me, so I took a chance. I am so glad I did. This book has it all. A fast paced plot that never lets up, delightful dialog and standout characters. I enjoyed every minute spent reading this book and highly recommend it.

Although he knows the FBI charges were bogus, Ben Hemmings is stunned to find he will spend three years in an Alabama minimum-security cell. However, the prison was right next door to a high security correctional institution whose overflow of patrons were sent to the same "country club" that Ben now calls home. Some of the incarcerated like Rollie Shore own the prison and you either follow his rules, be prepared to protect oneself, or suffer the consequences.

Eighteen months of Rollie and the need to keep his wife and children safe lead Bento cut a deal with the FBI. Now he is free and seeking stolen horse sperm even as Bengoes up against an also liberated Rollie.

ON ICE is an intriguing tale that provides the audience with an insightful look at prison life. When the story line profiles an insider view at the incarceration industry from the perspective of its prime supplier (convicts), the plot is interesting and amazingly filled with ardor. The who-done-it and the civilian battle with Rollie seem stretched, but well written because readers will continue to feel Ben's anguish. Though not quite as exciting nor straightforward as his art mysteries (see THIEF OF LIGHT and THE GRAVIYTY OF SHADOWS) David Ramus paints an entertaining tale, especially the life behind the bars subplot.

This is not a wretched book; I just could not take to it because of its condescending nature. From the very foundation of this novel, Ramus dumbs down all of his characters. It sort of felt like I was reading a book on the level of Dukes of Hazard. Only the writing, detail, and characters were more adept than the silly plot. Which was kind of odd and sort of sad.

First of all, it is almost inconceivable that the main character would have ended up in prison the way that he did. Secondly, all of the problems that he goes through while in prison were set up with a very insane chain of events. The implausibility of it all just gets you down and it's hard to over look as the book progresses.

I have a soft spot in my heart for Ramus. I have read all three of his novels and will read the next one he puts out. I hope that he lives up to his potential and writes a real taught thriller aimed at the thinking adult rather than brain dead plebe next time.

This book was suggested to me by another Amazon reader & reviewer. I am so glad I took the advice about "Ice".
The main character, a deeply involved & respected family man in the Atlanta area, Ben, is wrongly imprisoned. His struggles to survive incarceration are intriguing. And when the Mafia becomes involved....excuse the play on words....it is an emotional offer the reader cannot refuse!
I enjoyed this thriller. I have found a new favorite author in David Ramus.
other reading suggestions: "Plumb Island" by Nelson Demille, "The Devil's Teardrop" by Jeffery Deaver

In ON ICE, Ramus, has written a thriller that transcends the genre. I couldn't put this one down. Ben Hemmings is that rare animal, an innocent man in prison. Offered a chance at an early release by an unscrupulous FBI agent, Hemmings is forced to confront a true mobster named Rollie Shore in order to recover a collection of missing genetic breeding samples stolen from an equine breeding lab. What separates this book from most thrillers is the depth of the characterizations and relationships. Ben's struggle to get home to his wife and children is a battle I empathized with every step of the way. This is a great read, even better than Ramus' first two novels, Thief of Light and The Gravity of Shadows. Buy this book!
