The Arctic Event is top notch. I hope the writer will pick up the torch and continue the series. The characters become more alive than in any of the previous Covert One books. The reader does a fine job from beginning to end.
This is actually a pretty good story, not nearly as random and unbelievable as most of Ludlem's stuff. The listen experience is very nearly ruined by the ridiculous sound effects added to the recording (gunshots, helicopter rotors, explosions, etc.) These effects make this is a hard book to listen to
I have been an avid audible listener foot quite some time.it has helped me stay sharp and entertained as well.
This is the author we have been looking for the continuation of this series. This is the best story i have listened to in this series since Ludlum passed away. I too, definately hoped that this author continues to write for the series as this story was excellent and a fantastic read.
An enjoyable adventure with an interesting reader adding to the action. Have read all "real" Ludlum novels and this writer does the series justice. Sit back, put on your hat and gloves and go ARTIC!
This is a variation ,a well written variation, of that novel, where a transport version, separated by years, of a great store where a variant of the B-29, a C-97, has engine troubles, and Land on a laake, the ice breaks, and freezes over. The aircrew was lost as was it's cargo of virulent airborne virsrus. I am sorry for the aside, but the B-29 had many variants. The Tu-4 of this story, including exact copies of patches of damage taken in conbaat, the B-50, the C-97, the KC-97 which served SAC for years. When the B-47 came along, Being designed the KC-135 a jet powered sswept wing aircraft, which became the 707 civilian airliner. One of very few aircraft, and the first jet aircraft to to develop into a civilian airline. The piston engine Locked Constellation was another aircraft to go from military to civilian use.
This plot introduces many twists and turns inherent to aa mystery set in a climate where man is almost an alien intruder. Weaponized anthrax was never used in any US aircraft. But we see weaponized defoliant used in many films from the Vietnam War. With these components inserted into a thriller of the first rate, it makes the plot just that more engaging.
Love the continued twist!
Like the medical and social impacts of our changing technologies.

Haven't read the book.
How the main characters complimented each other---they rose to each challenge and overcame whatever obstacle together.
Didn't have a favorite scene....enjoyed the whole audiobook.
I have read or listened to previous "Covert One" novels....this one ranks up there with the others.
