Alex Shaw’s Cold Blood is an immensely enjoyable and tightly written international spy thriller. The story moves from character to character and place to place with ease, and the glimpses of ex-pat life in Kiev are particularly enjoyable. Snow is a very likable action hero and Bull is a terrific bad guy. Smashing stuff.
Aidan Snow used to be in the SAS but having left that life behind has started a new career as a teacher. Unfortunately sometimes events from the past don't stay buried and they return to haunt us.
I have to say to start with I did slightly struggle to get into the story as it is so fast paced. It jumps around from different characters and to different countries. Once I got into it though I was well and truly hooked.
Aidan Snow is a really interesting character who I felt great empathy for. He is trying to get on with his life and seems to be quite settled with the direction his new career has taken him. Due to an old nemesis who wants an eye for an eye, Aidan has to rely on his time in the SAS to out wit his enemy to try and save himself.
Cold Blood is jam packed full of action and is great for anyone who likes an edge of your seat read.
But unfortunately the past can not stay buried and comes blasting back into his present....The Bull a ruthless gangland criminal is back after nearly killing Snow all those years ago and this time he is bound and determined to get the job done......Moving from the Ukraine to the UK and back again this story sets a blistering pace told from several points of view....The author is obviously knowledgeable of the differing locations and you really feel as if you are in each one. With full on no holds barred violence and a muscular plot this is a meaty read fuelled with revenge.......I was recommended this book by another author so thought I would give it a try and boy was it worth it! A great read and I look forward to reading his other books.
Aidan Snow not only survives, but changes his career and becomes a physical instructor at an international school in Kyiv, Ukraine. His days are filled with teaching and his nights with drinking with his mates. One thing he does maintain from his army days is running first thing every morning.
One night whilst out with his usual crowd, he comes face to face with the mastermind; Taurus “Bull” Pashinski. He’s ex-Russian Special Ops, and since the decline of the Soviet Union, is hell bent on making as much money as possible. Using ex-commandos from his old unit, he kidnaps Aidan’s flatmate Arnaud Hirst and his girlfriend, knowing that Aidan will come to rescue them.
Aidan Shaw has one major problem - who will believe him? Taurus “Bull” Pashinski was supposedly killed in a car accident just years after the bank robbery.
Alex Shaw has written a very intense, involved and captivating plot. Aidan Snow grows from being this ex-SAS soldier with a chip on his shoulder because he couldn’t carry on his chosen career, into once again returning to being a force to be reckoned with. Using Ukraine as the background for the plot also made this story that much more exciting, and bringing in ex-USSR trained Special Forces as the “baddies” certainly worked for me.
Alex Shaw, I can’t wait for the next Aidan Snow instalment. Hurry up and write it!
Breakaway Reviewers were given a copy of the book to review
This novel is more polished, hence I am giving it 5 stars. Although I still loved Paddy Fox in the other one and definitely recommend it.
