Surviving Ice

(Burying Water #4)


K. A. Tucker


Surviving Ice is the fourth and last of the Burying Water series by K. A. Tucker. 

Surviving Ice is set in San Francisco and features Ivy the prickly tattoo artist from early offerings in the series. 

Yet again Kathleen Tucker writes her novel so that it could be read as a standalone or part of a series.  There is just enough background to tie characters together without overwhelming (series) readers with too much already known information from previous books.


In a nutshell, Ivy narrowly misses out on coming to a tragic end and then slowly falls in love with the mercenary who was sent to end her short life.  If required.


Surviving Ice also does away with foreign villains and uses home-grown American citizens as villains of the day.

Our youngest commenced a new job

today, Monday, May 25.


As yet we are not sure who received the biggest

surprise upon his arrival at work.

No. 2 Son’s body temperature triggered

the thermal CV 19 detector.

He had twenty minutes to cool down.
