I received this book for free from Publicist in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Arctic Fire by Stephen Frey
Troy Jensen could do it all: he conquered the Seven Summits, sailed solo around the world twice, and even fought a bull in a Mexican slum on a dare. So when word comes that a rogue wave has swept Troy off a crab fishing boat in the Bering Sea and into a watery grave, his brother, Jack, doesn’t buy it. — Against his better judgment, Jack decides to quit his job as a Wall Street trader and head to Dutch Harbor, Alaska, to investigate. Minutes after revealing his plan in his father’s New York City office, Jack is nearly run down in the street. He doesn’t think much of it at the time, but as he digs deeper into Troy’s disappearance, Jack unearths information about RED-CELL-SEVEN (RCS), a super-secret American intelligence group that has operated for forty years in almost total secrecy and with complete impunity—and its leaders intend to keep it that way at any cost.
An adrenaline-pumping tale of one man’s descent into a hellish underworld populated by terrorists, assassins, and very bad “good guys,” Arctic Fire explores the disturbing difference between doing what is good and doing what is right when it comes to protecting America from her greatest enemies.
Today I’ve invited my boyfriend’s mom, Chris, to the blog to review a book for me. Though Chris is an avid reader, she is new to the online book world. I have already introduced Chris to Goodreads (connect with her there!), and we’re now beginning the scary book blogging introduction! So please welcome Chris to On a Book Bender!
Sometimes trust viciously bad good guys
My Thoughts on Arctic Fire
This is a fast paced story that will not let you decide who are the good guys or the bad guys. Trying to make up your mind keeps this book almost impossible to put down. The dichotomy of a gentle man who is afraid of heights willing to risk all to find his reckless daredevil brother is a compelling tale. This is a terrific read, and fits perfectly on the same shelf as conspiracy thrillers by Dan Brown, Lee Child, and Vince Flynn.
Although paranormal and time travel (to the past only – I know, it’s a quirk) will hook me every time, conspiracies and black ops with a save mankind imperative will always have room on my to read list. I will definitely read more of Stephen Frey’s body of work.
