To appreciate Dustin Long's ICELANDER: imagine Nancy Drew with a dragon tattoo in a loving take-off of all things mysterious.

Description


"Icelander" is the debut novel from a brilliant new mind, an intricate, giddy romp steeped equally in Nordic lore and pulpy intrigue. When Shirley MacGuffin is found murdered one day prior to the annual town celebration in remembrance of Our Heroine's mother the legendary crime-stopper and evil-thwarter Emily Bean everyone expects Our Heroine to follow in her mother's footsteps and solve the case. She, however, has no interest in inheriting the family business, or being chased through steam-tunnels, or listening to skaldic karaoke, or fleeing the inhuman Refurserkir. But evil has no interest in her lack of interest. A Nabokovian goof on Agatha Christie, a madcap mystery that is part "The Third Policeman" and part "The Da Vinci Code, The Icelander" is one thing above all else: a true original.
