Blazing Ice is a graphic portrayal of show business. It tells what really goes on behind the scenes of a multi-million dollar production. This is the true story of a young man who dreams of being an ice show star despite his lack of training and experience. He has a gimmick that he thinks will help him achieve his goal: he can juggle fires while he skates. He goes by himself to Europe to prove he can succeed in becoming a star with Holiday on Ice. During his climb up the ladder, he finds himself in the middle of all sorts of scandals: the casting couch, drug smuggling, prostitution, backstage accidents, suicide, wife beating, a police raid, sex of every imaginable description, and a constant stream of back stabbing. The old-timers in the show, most of whom have never risen above the rank of chorus kid, resent seeing someone new pass them by. Our skater has never encountered gays before, and he finds the gay world to be quite shocking. Dealing with these people forces him to cope with his own sexual insecurities. By the time his first year with the show is over, his whole life is turned upside-down. Blazing Ice also describes what it is like to tour Europe. The show performs in Paris, Rome, Zurich, Amsterdam, Prague, and many other great European capitals. Our skater swims in the beautiful blue Mediterranean, wins money in Monte Carlo, explores the catacombs beneath the Vatican, climbs the Eiffel Tower, investigates nearly every major art museum in Europe, and does all sorts of wonderful and fantastic things. Does our skater find glamour and excitement? Yes. Does he find heartache? Definitely. Is stardom worth the sacrifice? The reader will just have to read Blazing Ice to find out!
