The Ice Harvest, one of the most acclaimed noir debuts of 2000, is now followed by The Walkway - both its prequel and sequel. Sidney's stepfather, Gunther Fahnstiel, got lucky in The Ice Harvest. Lucky to the tune of 250,000 dollars in untraceable notes. Ten years later he's escaped from the Lake Vista nursing home; confused, frail and desperate for a haircut. Sidney has prospered since his days running the bar at the Sweet Cage; he's now the owner, in fact, and strip clubs are big business. So a 12,000 dollar reward is posted for Gunther's safe return. The only problem is Gunther's just run into the daughter of an old flame and memories of dark deeds from decades before begin to surface...

It was made into a movie in 2006 starring John Cusack, , Connie Nielsen, Billy Bob Thornton and Oliver Platt, directed by Harold Ramis and adapted by Richard Russo and Robert Benton.
