Publisher's Summary

The story went something like this: Troy Jensen, who sailed solo around the world and conquered the seven summits, fell off a crab boat called Arctic Fire and drowned in the Bering Sea. Troy’s brother Jack, who doesn’t buy the story for a minute, heads to Alaska to uncover the truth. Jack discovers a connection between Troy and a secret intelligence organization known as Red Cell Seven (RCS) that will stop at nothing to protect America from threat (even if they have to kill thousands of Americans to do it). The problem is, the more Jack learns about Troy’s involvement with RCS, the more RCS learns about Jack. Arctic Fire is an adrenaline-pumping tale of one man’s descent into an underworld populated by terrorists, assassins, and viciously bad good guys.

    Story
    "Fuel for the edrenaline junkie!"

    In "Arctic Fire," Stephen Frey introduces us to Red Cell Seven (RCS), an ultra-secret arm of the U.S. intelligence apparatus. RCS has been operating for over 40 years and is apolitical, protecting the interests of the United States rather than any one political ideology. The new president, however, is not willing to let RCS operate with impunity any longer and is threatening to dismantle the organization. Certain rogue elements within RCS will not allow that to happen, no matter what it takes to survive.

    Troy Jensen is an operative in RCS, unknown to all his family except his father, former Marine Colonel and CEO of one of the worlds largest banks. Jack Jensen, Troy's adopted brother, thinks Troy is just a spoiled rich kid, traveling the globe in search of adventure. But while Troy is off climbing mountains or fighting bulls, he is actually gathering intelligence and using his "hobbies" as cover. His latest adventure sees Troy working on a crab boat in Alaska, one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. But it would seem Troy tempted fate once to often and his family is notified that he was washed overboard by a wave during a storm.

    Jack had never come to terms with his being adopted. In addition to wondering who his real parents were, he never could seem to live up to Bill's expectations. Troy was seemingly the perfect son and the pride Bill had for him was painfully evident. Jack thought part of the reason was that blood was thicker than water. But Jack cared for Troy as only brothers can, adopted or not, and he did not believe the story of Troy's death. Troy was a survivor. There was no way Troy would have been the only person washed overboard. If anything, he would have been the one to save the others as he had done in the past. Jack quits his job as a bond trader and treks to Alaska in order to find the truth. But Jack makes some very dangerous people nervous and is soon running for his life.

    This was an enjoyable read, fast paced and full of action. The plot was, for the most part, very believable if not somewhat scripted. The ending was a stunner and seemed to come out of left field. I am not really sure what the author was intending with it. It is obvious he was setting it up for a sequel, but the ending seemed to raise more questions than necessary. That being said, if you are an action junkie, then you will enjoy this book.

    "Choppy in places but overall good read"

    I really enjoyed the story concept however I think at times the author was looking for page fillers. I am looking forward to future books

    Story
    "Read it to avoid the annoying performance"

    I have enjoyed William Dufris in the past but not in Artic Fire and Red Cell Seven. His character voices get confused and he is CONSTANTLY sighing, loudly. It's so distracting. In Red Cell Seven he has a stuffed up nose making it even more distracting. He also blusters too loudly making his older characters seem psychotic rather than passionate.
    As for the characters, the older brother Jack is a whiny wimp.

    Story
    "Jumpy and Erratic"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Character development. Reasonable transitions between characters and events. Finishing the book rather than printing the plot summary in the last 10 pages.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not Stephen Frye


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    OK


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Setting and plot had promise. It was not reralized.


    Any additional comments?

    Was there a respectable editor? It seems to have ended as is when due, like a high school history report.

    Story
    "Ridiculous"

    Juvenile treatment of Jacks personal relationship with Karen. Overly dramatic performance of the reader, and often inappropriate and just plain ridiculous interpretation of the text. I would have stopped listening if I hadn't started listening simultaneously to "Red Cell Seven"
    which is better written and performed.

    Story
    "Pude tener más misterio o acción"

    La historia se desarrolla con sentido, pero las cosas se dan un tanto fáciles y me dejan muchas incógnitas. Quiero leer la serie para saber en qué termina. La narración es buena, incluso en tono siniestro y misterioso me llevó a querer encontrar más acción.

    "Too violent"

    I didn't like the excessive violence. The author could have decreased the blood and gore and his story would have been fine.
