Part of Evan Tanner series by Lawrence Block. Page 1. Chapter 1. I flew from New York to Los Angeles, then nonstop to Seoul. I had a few hours before my flight to Bangkok, and I rode a shuttle bus into downtown Seoul, walked around, snacked on fried shrimp, drank a beer, and caught a bus back to the airport. Nothing looked remotely familiar, but then it had been quite a while since I’d been in Korea. I hadn’t spent much time in Seoul, but this time around it was noisy and bustling and furiously modern, a far cry from the Korean cities and villages I remembered.

Lawrence Block is best-known for his popular mystery series featuring bookseller/burglar Bernie Rhodenbarr and ex-alcoholic detective Matthew Scudder. But in the late 1960s and early 1970s, he created a globe-trotting adventurer with a highly developed taste for exotic locales--Evan Michael Tanner. Tanner's been on an extended vacation and, at last, Block has brought him back. Ever since his New Jersery assignment went awry in 1972, Tanner has--believe or not--been stuck in deep freeze. He has been thawed out however, and is ready to catch up on lost time. No sooner does he make himself available when he is recruited for another covert assignment destabilizing the government of Burma, the victim of a rebel movement. Exotic surroundings, drug trafficking, an exiled Russian beauty, and a mysterious dead man create an edgy and entertaining puzzle for Tanner to piece together. In a novel both zany and suspenseful, fans will finally learn where Tanner's been all these years--and where he's going next. * Lawrence Block fans have been waiting for a new Evan Tanner mystery for 25 years. * Signet will release the early Evan Tanner books in mass market editions. * A teaser chapter of Tanner on Ice will appear in the Rhodenbarr mystery, The Burglar in the Library.

Tanner is back after an absence of almost thirty years. Lawrence Block's sleep-deprived accidental spy had numerous entertaining adventures many years ago, but Lawrence Block turned his attention to other stories and Tanner disappeared from the world. Now he's back, but where has he been? Turns out he was frozen in a basement in New Jersey. Thawed out, he discovers that the world has changed around him, and he's got to learn to adapt. Fortunately, he doesn't sleep, so he's got 24 hours a day to learn everything he needs to know. HIs old chief is still around too, and still erroneously thinking that Tanner works for him, he sends him off to Burma (now renamed Myanmar) to destabilize the government there. What follows is a madcap caper involving stolen gems, a Russian/Jewish/Indian beauty, and a resistance movement that is just too comfortable and happy to rise up in revolt.

You have to love the imagination of Block. Tanner's escapades are ridiculous, but fun. This time he was involuntarily frozen for 25 years and then came back to life. Then he returned to his apartment, which his roommate had saved for him. The zaniness doesn't stop there. If you can suspend your disbelief for enjoyment, why not?

This is possibly the last (although Block says maybe, maybe not) Evan Tanner story and it is very clever in how it moves Tanner from the 70's to the 90's. The concept involved is of course far-fetched but not really sci-fi stuff anymore, so it works. Block is a great wordsmith and knows how to make his characters completely engaging and worth keeping track of.

will tanner die? The main character is so different then most murder mysteries it is a refreshing change. It's nice when the good guy is not so perfect himself and is very aware of it and sees others faults but tries to help rather then judge.
Coiriel
Another story about Tanner and his sleeping problems and how he uses this to his advantage.
fightnight
All of Blocks characters and storylines are interesting and entertaining

It's great to see Evan Tanner back after a very long absence. As usual, Mr. Block has a clever way around the decades of his absence and the book is a refreshing reminder of the rollicking style of the series in its heyday.
The older Tanner books were a blast to read. Had me laughing out loud. Tanner's
the man." This book has no zest, no fun, no laughs. But, it does have the blahs. Very much a disappointment.
