Publisher's Summary

A deadly Russian plot to unleash widespread cancer on America is uncovered by an unsuspecting geologist and his team of roughnecks while drilling for natural gas in Iceland. 

On a whim, Briggs Stevens invites a beautiful new acquaintance to travel with him to Iceland. A hiking accident quickly spirals into a lifesaving rescue for his friend and exposes a battalion of Russian soldiers involved in a covert operation to destroy the ozone layer above New England. One soldier agrees to help Briggs rescue his friend in exchange for asylum to America and in the process helps to ignite a love between Briggs and his friend that lasts beyond the waters of Iceland. 

Powerful leaders use the Arctic landscape to set the stage for a new Cold War between the US and Russia. A surprise coup d’état develops in Russia and causes precious time to be shortened for a solution to avoid a thermonuclear holocaust.

More Twists and Turns than a Bag of Pretzels

I normally gravitate to historical novels but after reading my third book in a row on General George Washington, I needed a change. Lethal Light provided that escape with a contemporary story that at times seemed unbelievable but in today’s world, why not?! This adventure centers around a small group of US military veterans who stumble on a sinister Russian plot to silently harm American citizens. With much of the action occurring in Iceland, there is drama, intrigue and even some romance - what more could you want. If you enjoy military, techno-fiction, Gordon Fair’s book is a fun read/listen.

Plausible doomsday thriller always excites!

I relish stories that have big themes, major consequences AND are plausible. Lethal Light fills the bill with a NEW world-destructive WW III-triggering event (to join nukes, chemical/germ warfare, cyberterrorism, et al). That it is within the realm of possibility magnifies the suspense. The narration is a bit off-putting at first, but you come to enjoy it as the audiobook leads to a most satisfying conclusion!

Iceland intrigue

Lethal Light takes you on a journey weaving geology, romance, intrigue, and Russian espionage through California, Green Bay (Go Pack) and Iceland. Although the selected reader’s skills and talents fell short and didn’t enhance the potential of the story I would still commend the author on its book’s readability.

Narration suited it - interesting story

I really enjoyed elements of the story it was a unique take on the whole potential crisis genre. Where I had issues with was I thought there was a bit too much fluff which was unnecessary and didn't add to the story. I really liked the story though and the narration really suited it.
