Publisher Description

War veteran Peter Ash tracks a murderer and his criminal family through the most forbidding and stark landscape he has ever encountered, in the latest thriller from the bestselling author of The Drifter.

Losing ground in his fight against post-traumatic claustrophobia, war veteran Peter Ash has no intention of getting on an airplane--until a grieving woman asks Peter to find her eight-year-old grandson. The woman's daughter has been murdered. Erik, the dead daughter's husband, is the sole suspect, and he has taken his young son and fled to Iceland for the protection of Erik's lawless family.
     Finding the boy becomes more complicated when Peter is met at the airport by a man from the United States Embassy. For reasons both unknown and unofficial, it seems that Peter's own government doesn't want him in Iceland. The police give Peter two days of sightseeing in Reykjavik before he must report back for the first available seat home. . . and when they realize Peter isn't going home until he accomplishes his mission, they start hunting him, too.
     From the northernmost European capital to a rustbound fishing vessel to a remote farm a stone's throw from the arctic, Peter must confront his growing PTSD and the most powerful Icelandic snowstorm in a generation to find a killer, save an eight-year-old boy, and keep himself out of an Icelandic prison--or a cold Icelandic grave.

Different from usual

Wasn’t excited about location at first but was educated quite a bit about Iceland and the people. Ended up enjoying storyline as well as challenging location.

Unnerving

The author says it was difficult to write. I believe him because it was difficult to read. Not Like the other books. I put it down several times. I did finish only because I was on an island and couldn’t get anything else. I am unsure wether to finish the series.

A return to form

This book was an unexpected return to quality, after the sub-average 4th in the series (and its wholly unnecessary flirtation with side characters blessed with woke superhero powers). I’m glad to see the author get back to grit, and to break with some of the conventions he’d built up in the previous four novels, which were getting tired faster than his main character does chasing bad guys through the snow barefoot.

Keep it up.
