7/20/1992 The Ice-House is open.

July 20, 1992.  This day saw the publication in the United States of Minette Walters' first novel, The Ice House.  A corpse is found in the ice house in an English village, and there are plenty of candidates for who might be the victim - and why.  Kirkus Reviews said: "Unholy passions seethe inches beneath a proper surface: a brutal, literate debut--especially welcome to fans of Ruth Rendell."  Crime Writers Association called it the debut of the year and gave it the JOhn Creasey Award.
