You might want to read the reviews before you buy.
Here is one from the most respected book magazines in the world, Publishers Weekly. At the very least, you will find out what an Iraqi Icicle is.
Australian author Bernie Dowling applauds this promotion.
“I am pleased Amazon and Bent Banana Books have made Iraqi Icicle available at the eBook price of .99c,” Dowling said from his home  north of Brisbane.
“I created the novel as a deliberate challenge for the reader with a headache from the sugar-hits of formula thrillers. Now, people can read the eBook to decide which friend would appreciate the paperback for Christmas.”
He said the correct answer to what is an Iraqi icicle was find out for yourself.
I have not blogged here for quite some time so I am not sure if you are out there. Helloooow!  Helloooow! Anybody there? 
Any way, if you are out there, you know the drill. We finish with a song. As this post is about a neo-noir novel this one is appropriate. The video is a cultural atrocity but the song is cool.
Cheers, Bernie.

CAN you help me achieve 1000+ free downloads of Iraqi Icicle this week through your social media contacts?
I am not begging, though I will if I have to.

The great attribute of my anti-hero Steele Hill is that once he commits to something he is in boots and all.
The world is full of wishy-washy middle managers. Vacillation is at the heart of their powers, as their lack of commitment appeases all sides.
At the heart of the novel Iraqi Icicle is Steele’s full-bodied engagement of a deadly enterprise he is sure will fail.
Thus it is with my decision to give away copies of Iraqi Icicle for five days. If you have not read my previous post on The Whole World Loves Freedom, please do so. After this join me on my Quixotic and Dulcinean quest.
Please contact your social media contacts to achieve this noble if doomed quest.
