  • A cold spy thriller

    By way of a change - Canadian intelligence agents. The action moves from Libya (the Prologue) to the Northwest Passage where international interests collide over the matter of oil deposits. Russian, American and Danish forces engage in some skirmishing - and it is up to a group of civilians to ensure Canadian sovereignty is defended. A fast-moving plot - I read the first two thirds at a sitting.

  • Fast paced, with complex characters

    I’ve had the great good fortune to read both the original book and this new updated edition. I thought the original was fantastic, and this is even better. I think I have to blame my inner critic. When I don't like a book, she has no problems coming up with all kinds of things to say. But if I really enjoyed a novel, I'm often left speechless when it comes time to write a review, and this time's no different. I could say that Arctic Wargame is fast paced, with complex characters, and an engaging plot, but I’m pretty sure everyone else is going to say that too. So, how about my take on “is a Canadian spy believable?” I suspect this is the true beauty of the Canadian security and intelligence communities. Our global reputation is just too 'nice' for us to stoop to levels this sneaky. And if we do make some terrible international faux pas, we could be mistaken for another nationality whose reputation is less pristine. Besides, we’re always the first ones to say “sorry”. I can't wait to see what Justin and Carrie are up to next. I received a complimentary copy of this book.\

  • Loved action & characters. Jones hits a home run.

    Ethan Jones makes life hard on his heroes wherever his novel takes them. From the Searing Desert to the Frozen North. Justin Hall struggles to survive and stop an invasion from an unexpected enemy. The drama and action just keeps coming. My fingers and toes feel numb just reading.

  • Do or die mission

    I loved this book. It is a revamp of Ethan's first book and this revamp is riveting. Sent on a “do or die mission” to redeem themselves, Justin Hall and his partner Carrie end up in the frigid Arctic. They don’t know there is a traitor in their midst until it is too late. Left stranded in the Arctic with no weapons or food it looks like the end for them. Who is behind this traitorous plot? Does it have anything to do with the icebreakers that appeared off the Arctic coast? Can they stop this or will they die trying? Don’t miss this revamped and chilling Ethan Jones thriller.

  • What Happens in the Arctic...

    Arctic Wargame is the first book in the Justin Hall Spy Thriller series and has just been reissued. This was the first book by Ethan Jones that I had read, so I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was a well crafted thriller. This book is the start of the series but is a standalone book. The last couple of chapters hint that there is more to the story and it isn't over quite yet. but the book does not end in a traditional cliffhanger. There is violence. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a good job of keeping a steady pace throughout the book to keep this reader interested. It kept you guessing what twists and turns would be revealed in the pages ahead. After all, why would Denmark be trying to invade Canada? As usual, nothing is quite as it seems on the surface. I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. I intend to keep on reading more about Justin Hall. If you like books from authors like Brad Thor and Vince Flynn, you will enjoy this series as well.

    Thanks for your feedback!
