Overview

ARCTIC WARGAME is the first book in the wildly popular Justin Hall spy thriller series, hitting Best Sellers lists in 2012 and 2013.

Canadian Intelligence Service Agent Justin Hall—combat-hardened in operations throughout Northern Africa—has been demoted after a botched mission in Libya.

When two foreign icebreakers appear in Canadian Arctic waters, Justin volunteers for the reconnaissance mission, eager to return to the field. His team discovers a foreign weapons cache deep in the Arctic, but they are not aware that a spy has infiltrated the Department of National Defence.

The team begins to unravel a treasonous plan against Canada, but they fall under attack from one of their own. Disarmed and stripped of their survival gear, they are stranded in a remote location. Now the team must survive the deadly Arctic not only to save themselves, but their country.

Arctic Wargame is an action-packed spy thriller in the bestselling tradition of Black List, The Fallen Angel, and The Last Man. Readers will enjoy a great tale of courage, fear and betrayal.

The bonus content includes the prologue and the first six chapters of TRIPOLI'S TARGET, the second book in this series, which came out in October 2012 and reached Best Sellers lists in 2012 and 2013.

    In his debut novel ARCTIC WARGAME, Ethan Jones allows readers to

    In his debut novel ARCTIC WARGAME, Ethan Jones allows readers to sample the world of Justin Hall, Canadian Intelligence Secret Service Agent. It is the first in a series of spy thrillers featuring the agent, and, as is expected of stories within this genre, is fast-moving, action-packed, and delivers a high death count.

    Given that I am one of those people who'll hold their breath throughout movies that take place underwater and avoid novels based on the sea because I can't stand the thought of not seeing land, I had reservations about being stuck in Arctic Canada for the time it would take to read the book. Really, that's a long time to shiver and not be able to visualise the green of a tree! Once I embarked on my frosty study, however, I was pleased to learn that I wasn't going to be transformed into Ice-woman with a bad case of leukophobia after all. Thank-you, Ethan, for the frequent shifts in setting! And not only did these setting changes serve to curb my neurotic tendencies, but they propelled the story along at a fast pace. This, together with the novel storyline and straightforward prose used by the author, made for an effective and engaging narrative.

    I can't help but comment on previous reviews in which some readers expressed that both character development and dialogue in this thriller was a bit thin. Of course, readers are only relaying their own perceptions and preferences in this regard and this is to be respected. Personally, though, I think that with action-driven thrillers such as ARCTIC WARGAME, eloquent dialogue can be granted a back seat. There are bigger things going on! Being the first of a series of these thrillers, I also don't think we can expect characters to be as fully developed as those in one-off novels. And do we want them? I know I don't. I want something to be left to learn about the central characters in subsequent books. Then I'll have something to look forward to. For me, the character development by the author and his use of the show-not-tell approach was well done.

    I believe this was a great effort for a debut author and I look forward to catching up with Justin and Carrie in subsequent books in this series and watching the author's writing technique refine over time. Well done, Ethan!

    A thriller in the style of Jason Bourne The greatest compliment

    A thriller in the style of Jason Bourne
    The greatest compliment I can pay this book is to liken it to the “Bourne” series. Obviously it is different but I feel if you like that style of story you will love this book, By the way do not be put off by the location in the prologue, it is there to give the characters a flying start, which it certainly does and continues to keep them flying from page to page.
    If you want a really good read go get this book today.

    I

    I am hoping this improves as i get farther into it. It reads like it was written by two people...one is familiar with the technical side and the other filling out character development. I know nothing of the technical aspect, but the descriptions and dialogue of characters are very weak.
