Praise for Black Ice

Definitely one for those who like their crime novels tough and demanding.

Australian Bookseller and Publisher

This stands up against any bestseller of the genre and then its local setting makes it better.

West Australian

With plenty happening, Giarratano is cool and calm at the controls. In a word: suspenseful.

Gold Coast Bulletin

Leah's writing remains tight and true and really quite exciting.

Courier Mail

Although Leah obviously draws on her enormous experience as a clinical psychologist, working with both victims and psychopaths to flesh out her characters, she demonstrates increasing confidence and writing skill with each and every book.
