Product Description

Product Description

What seems like a routine assignment for charter pilot John Preston turns out to be anything but. He’s suddenly drawn into a nightmare world of intrigue and violence. It begins in a remote corner of Greenland’s treacherous east coast when a man’s mutilated body is found among the ice floes. The body is taken to a nearby weather station by local fishermen.

Preston is approached by two strangers who want to fly to the station because they claim they might be able to identify the body. From then on the action is fast and furious and Preston becomes the desperate quarry of a band of ruthless killers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic thriller 5 Dec 2012
By Ian H
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Every now and then, one comes across a book, a story, a plot which makes the reader go "wow", and this is such a book. Set in the scenic environment near Greenland, the author tells the story in a beautiful free prose, vivid characterisation & thrilling plot that builds up with every turn of the page.

There are many incidental pleasures to be had, not least the way the author combines deep knowledge of local geography, planes, boats etc with an absorbing plot line. It is clever, thoroughly researched and an engrossing read. I certainly found it compelling and exciting – just the thing to make even the most book-weary reviewer feel refreshed.

Throughout, there's a sense of a novelist in total control of his material; the narrative is seeded with incidental detail that becomes crucial when you least expect it. It's a wonderfully atmospheric read from an author who gets better with every book (I can say this having read James Raven's other books). Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual Story-line 18 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like thrillers that have an unusual story-line and this is one of them. The action switches between the icy wastes of Greenland and Iceland and features a charter pilot who gets mixed up in a murderous plot. It's fast-moving and well written with vivid descriptions of the frozen north. Short book that's a really enjoyable red. Recommended.
