A Near-Perfect Thriller

4.5 out of 5 stars

Without giving too much away - Cold Kill is a story exactly as Warren describes: "Thomas Caine is being hunted." Honestly, much more information than that will give the entire story away.

I found myself really getting into the story and Warren wastes NO time getting into the action. I felt like I was just thrust directly into the driver's seat going 100 MPH (and I loved every moment of it). Caine is as much of a bad-youknowwhat as you remember - reminding me of the Bourne movies/books that I love so much with a little sprinkle of Bond in there.  He always seems to find himself in these situations that you think "there's no possible way he's going to get out of it..." and yet you're proven wrong time and time again.

The story seems to be a bit of an homage to the great story The Most Dangerous Game - taking someone and hunting them for sport.  The problem is - they don't know just how good Caine really is. I loved the back and forth between the men and Caine (and the men and each other when they realized this wasn't just some other hunt).

Warren is able to write about the cold in a way that makes you turn the heat up in the car when you're driving.  Of course, when I was listening to this, I was driving home from work, in the snow, in April - so it was cold. He was able to run a chill up my spine numerous times from talking about the cold and from the closeness that Caine would come to disaster. A feat that's not easy.

Cold Kill was narrated by Andrew Tell. A first-time narrator to this series, but no rookie to narrating excellent titles.  Tell injects something to the Thomas Caine stories that weren't there before.  I liked the series, but with Tell behind the wheel, I have a new found appreciation for the pacing and storytelling ability of Warren. He just breathes life into the story that you don't get with every narrator.

Overall, Cold Kill is probably my favorite Caine story to date and with the addition of Tell as the narrator - I'm pretty darn happy with this.  I finished it in just about one day and I loved the length of it.  I thought Warren told his story without any extra details needed.

A pretty cool thriller

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily
left this review.

I've listened to several other books by Andrew Tell, so was happy to give this book a shot. I wasn't familiar with the Thomas Caine series, so figured this would be a good introduction to the series. Damn glad I did. This novella was really entertaining and starts with action. The dialog and story are well done and narrated masterfully. I am actually quite eager to seek out the full length books in this series, now.

Excellent addition to Thomas Caine's World

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Have recommended Andrew Warren's Thomas Caine to friends before and will continue to do so. He's created an engaging, resourceful character in Thomas Caine and I look forward to his next book in the series.If you like Bourne, the Grey Man, Will Robbie, Jet, Victor the assassin, etc this is definitely a series you will enjoy reading or listening to.

Any additional comments?

Great Series!!! Now I just have to wait - patience, I tell myself- for the next book.

Thrilling

This is an edge-of-your seat thriller. A lot happens in a very short amount of time in this fast-paced story. Our hero is a quite remarkable character. I thoroughly enjoyed listening.

A thriller you won't soon forget

A thriller that you can’t put down. The action is non-stop and the suspense keeps you turning page after page. You can’t imagine what can possibly happen next. Although we are introduced to Thomas Caine in the novella, Devil’s Due, Cold Kill is a stand-alone story that gives you everything you need to know about Thomas Caine, his former and current life, and the people who are important to him. When these people are threatened, by persons unknown Caine takes action to protect them, but hits a wall with the Russian Mafia. Caine is drugged, flown to Sibera, and dropped out of an airplane in a cage onto the frozen tundra in the winter. And this is only the mild part. The story actually goes from here. Incredible action and suspense. Highly recommend this amazing thriller and look forward to more in this series from this very talented author.

action packed from the first sentence!

This book is well written and equally well narrated. The action is nonstop. Louis L'amour did a book along similar lines that I really enjoyed but I must say that Andrew Warren's effort is as good as that master story teller. In all honesty, I wish that I could unread this book... so that I could have the pleasure of experiencing it again.

Good book and well narrated

I was given this audio book to listen to and as I have never read or listened to any of Andrew's other books I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. I am glad I did listen to it as it is a really good book, full of action and suspense.

The book follows a man called Thomas Caine after he has been taken by the Russian Mafia and left in the middle of Siberia to be chased and hunted by a group of dangerous hunters. He then spends the rest of the book trying to evade them and not get anyone else killed at the same time.

Even though this is book two in the series you don't really need to have read the first one, or any previous books starring Caine as there is enough information in the first chapter that you can work out his history and what he has done previously to warrant the kind of attention he gets in this book.

I listened to the audio version of this book and thought the narrator was really good. He managed to use different voices for each character and also got the American, Russian and Korean accents as well as male and female voices, which added so much to the story and I will be keeping an eye out for more by him as well.
