This was a first read for me by a wonderful author who certainly knows his history and weaves it into a mystery that is one I could barely put down! Looking forward to more from this author on stand-alone books.

a quick read due to the cardboard characters. think he was trying to write an action movie.

pretty mediocre adventure - thriller Reads like a weak Ken Follett novel

Cover looks like a WWII thriller but it really is a contemporary story set in Iceland, with a link to something that happened in WWII.

I would of give 5 stars to the quick moving action story but the "something" was disappointing and not as farfetched as the story implies.

I tried to like this book, I really did

Interesting concept and plot, poorly executed. Could have been so much better

The syntax was akward in places (obviously they did not have a native English speaker proof read after the translation)

Spoiler Alert

Several plot specifics in the following critique

And the author has not concept of how some things actually work in the real world.

ie The defense departmant does NOT tell the State Dept that they are taking over an Embassy.

the Army does NOT operate fixed wing transports, the Air Force does,

Would a Search and Rescue training exercise really let two young men go off by them selves to "test the new snowmobiles"?

and on
and on

Not his best but as good as most on the theme of CIA conspiracies, NAZI secrets. Cleaver method of including Erlendur & Sigurder Oli in what is otherwise not one of thier tales.
