Thin Ice is Huw Thomas's fourth title and the first that I have read of his work.

In "Thin Ice" we are introduced to two Danny Harpers. The first Danny, the main character, is riding a bicycle on a country road and is in an accident with an out-of-control car sliding on black ice.

After a banged up and bruised Harper wakes up in the hospital, he soon discovers that he is no longer in the England he knew or the same body.

In addition, Rebecca, his fiancée and the woman he loves doesn't know him in this alternate England causing Danny to fall into a depression. He decides he has to win this Rebecca's (Becca to Danny) heart, which makes for some interesting reading to see how he manages to pull this off -- or not.

In this alternate universe, the first Danny discovers he has inherited the unhealthy body of a Danny that was a heavy drinker and smoker. In addition, instead of being an editor with a secure job, Danny is now a reporter on "thin ice" in danger of losing his job.

It doesn't take long before Danny discovers that a wealthy and powerful deranged serial killer already in jail in the England he came from hasn't been caught yet in this alternate world, and Danny knows where the bodies of several dead woman will be found after they are murdered, but some of them are not dead yet. Armed with this knowledge, Danny risks his life and sets out to stop and catch the killer and save some of the intended victims.

"Thin Ice" is a cleverly crafted book, which kept my attention from start to finish. Although I found that the novel could use a professional copy editor to clean up a few misplaced words, those minor glitches did not distract from enjoying the story.

Danny Harper is involved in an accident while riding his bike, and awakens to find he has lost his former life and is stuck in a parallel timeline – one where he has not achieved his previous level of happiness and status. He has all his old memories, but former coworkers and friends do not, and are frankly skeptical of his story as well as his mental health. As he tries to reclaim what he feels is his rightful place in society, he encounters a serial killer who has not yet been exposed in this universe, and struggles to reveal the crimes before the man can kill again.

A complex, absorbing tale – mystery, suspense, and thrills galore. Well-written and cleverly crafted, the author easily pulls the reader into Danny’s nightmare, and keeps your attention to the end. A few typos were noted, and a couple mis-used words, but certainly not enough to detract from the story. Great job, Mr. Thomas!

This is a very well-written book with a well-crafted, interesting story. Only thing I took issue with is the abrupt ending, which left a huge question for me regarding Harper's parallel universe thing. Toward the end of the book it appeared that something might happen and we'd know one way or he other (i.e., Harper stays in new universe or goes back to old) but the book ended without an answer, which I found frustrating. Hope I find more books by Huw Thomas.

What a fantastic tale of suspense and intrigue. Danny has the perfect life, At least he did until that fateful day when an accident changed everything. Is he suffering from a concussion or is it some sort of psychosis? I loved the characters and story line. Beware there are some chapters which will keep you wondering how and where they fit in. I highly recommend to mystery lovers.

At first I was a little confused. But once I understood what the author was establishing I got excited. So much like sliding doors or movies where people are in a coma but can help in a parallel universe. Awesome read.

An engrossing read. At times, I felt as torn as the protagonist. Danny's dual challenges, psychosocial advancement and facing the Oedipal dilemma create a top notch psychological tale. Will he master this stage or will he succumb to protracted adolescence? A few typos (or are they actually clues?) briefly distract from the crises.

I found this book an extremely interesting read. Had to make myself put it down!! Somewhat a slow start, bit by bit pulling me into the story until I felt like I was looking in a window watching the drama unfold...Thank You for sharing such a gripping page turner!!

I will not give a summary of the tale since the description and other reviews do a fine job of that. I found this book to be well-written and entertaining. I liked the unique concept and the way the author delivered the tale. It kept me interested. I would read more by this author.
