I received "Ice Fire" by David Lyons through the Goodreads Giveaway.

The main character,Jock Boucher, was raised on the Louisiana bayou, and just recently has assumed the powerful position of U.S. District Judge of the Eastern District of Louisiana.

One of his first cases on the bench involves Bob Palmetto, a geophysicist,just apprehended, who has been hiding from authorities for twenty years. Palmetto had invented a process that could double the world's available fossil fuel deposits by withdrawing methane gas from the frozen subsea surface.A leading energy company was stealing from him,and using a federal court to do it.

Boucher verifies the corruption claims and, with the help of Detective Fitch of the New Orleans Police Department, seeks justice against the company and its powerful founder John Perry. Boucher is pushed to the limits only to find himself in the line of fire.

This book was easy and enjoyable to read. I loved the character, Jock, as he was believable and likeable.This novel is for those that enjoy a real thriller from beginning to end.
