This book is misleading by the title. The author still claims to this day the Jamie Stevenson is called the ICEMAN, every true crime reader in Glasgow knows this is not true and came from a mistake printed in the Sunday Mail, the reporter stuck with this mistake then went on to write a book calling Jamie the ICEMAN when in fact it is well knows Jamie is the Bull and Frank McPhie was the ICEMAN.
It doesn't matter who many times it is said Mr Findlay you cannot write your own version of history, its inaccurate and misleading. Jamie Stevenson was over heard saying on his last home leave that this book was funny and full of crap but it suited him as it painted a total false impression of him, just like the press has.
If the titles a lie then think of what the rest of the book is full of??

I really enjoyed this, once I realised that it was, in fact, a documentary rather than a novel. A friend who lived in Glasgow in the time this was set really thought it was true to life. Would make a great film.

Apologist guff about faded criminals by sycophantic cheerleaders this is not. It may be about a Scottish criminal but it has a pan-Europe appeal that spells out in sharp detail how organised crime really works in the 21st century. Stevenson and his ilk are a worrying phenomenon. Theirs is a vast and global businesses that reach into ALL our lives. While reading the Iceman, sometimes you will laugh, other times you will feel sick to the pit of your stomach. At last - a crime book that does not celebrate the criminal.

Amazing insight into the global operations of drug dealers and the lengths they will go to as well as the impact the PoCA has had.

This gives an honest perspective in not only the realism of current drugs problem but the politics of gang related crime, and police investigation. A very unsightly true crime account.

As a former detective this gave me a great insight into the organised criminal gangs that blight our country and destroy lives with the import of drugs
