    I have recently read The Diplomat by Ethan Jones. In it, his character Justin Hall, of the Canadian Intelligence Service, must rescue a Canadian diplomat abducted in Nigeria. It has lots of action and great characters. I liked it so well that I have just purchased the Thrilling Thirteen Collection based solely on The Diplomat.

    Having already read Russian Hill by Ty Hutchinson, I was intrigued by the collection.
    I took a look at the sample and read two of the book descriptions before stopping and pressing the buy button.
    I knew this was one collection I had to have. Looking forward to a few days of pleasure. What a great deal.

    I purchased this collection as soon as it was published. I have read Ethan Jones and Ty Hutchinson so I will leave reviews of what I have read that is in this collection.

    The following review is for the Diplomat.

    I was fortunate to receive an ARC of the Diplomat in the hopes that I would post an honest review. I have read everything that the author has published so I was happy to get a jump on this novella.

    Ethan Jones writes special operations novels starring Justin Hall of the Canadian Intelligence Series. His novels are well crafted with the depth necessary for the adventure/thriller genre. I was a bit concerned when he announced that he was writing a Justin Hall novella. Ethan ran several risks in writing a novella. Would the story seem rushed? Would it be a bit trite for the genre? Would he be able to establish the pace of the longer books? Would a reader new to the series be able to associate with the characters?

    Fortunately for readers, especially his fans, Ethan was successful on all points. The one thought that I had while reading this story, was that Ethan is clearly showing his journeyman status as an author. One of my all time favorite authors is Daniel Silva who writes a similar genre of books that have the Mossad as the intelligence service. I have read all his books and froth at the mouth when Mr. Silva publishes a new novel. I bring up Daniel Silva because Ethan Jones matches up well with him. I enjoy them both almost equally as well.

    I know that I gave no background of the storyline. That was by design as I am sure other reviewers will do that. I felt it was more important to address the quality of the writing to aid new and existing readers in deciding to shell out a few dollars for this worthwhile novella. Highly recommended.

    The following review is for Arctic Wargame.

    Another GREAT debut novel. This time from a Canadian lawyer. I only read indie authors and continue to be highly impressed by the fine offerings by the newbies.

    This book is about an invasion of Arctic Canada by an implausible aggressive European mini-country. Ethan makes that implausible plot line work using a twist on the aggressors. The Canadian characters, including the indigenous arctic dwellers,are well crafted. You can actually "feel" them and the relationships between them.

    The storyline is very fast paced and never really lapses. I was engrossed in the story and found myself withing it was much longer so I could keep reading. The Arctic Wargame is highly recommended for anyone that enjoys a good action tale.

    Buy this book and support this author. I want him to continue writing.

    This review is for Russian Hill by Ty Hutchinson.

    The petite Chinese FBI agent Abby Kane is back for another entertaining mystery. That is a very good thing for us and a reason for those unfamiliar with Ty Hutchinson to get on board reading this fine author.

    Russian Hill refers to a San Francisco neighborhood. Most of this story takes place in Chinatown where Abby and a SFPD detective team up to solve an apparent series of serial killer murders. I particularly enjoy the continuous action whether it be on the job or at home with her kids and Po Po. Even the normally mundane events of home life are entertaining.

    Ty has crafted a character that the reader will fully understand and care about. She is not the invincible physically super woman of so many heroines. Abby is a woman that uses her fine mind to transcend her physical limitations. She is, however, the mental equal (or more) of the men that surround her.

    What is really great about this book is a two-fer. I mentioned the serial killer theme. That takes about two thirds of the story and is a great stand-alone yarn. Once solved, Abby (and only Abby) realizes that there is a subplot. I won't create a spoiler so you will have to read this excellent book to find out.

    My recommendation is to get some good green oolong tea, and few rice cakes, and sit back and start reading.

    This review is restricted to Arctic Wargames, the only one I have read.
    The premise of this book takes a little getting used to, namely some Danish military makes an unauthorized attempt to take the northwest passage from Canada by launching a small invasion force. Once that is accepted this is a genuinely exciting action story. Justin, an agent of the Canadian Intelligence Service, is assigned the task of finding out what two icebreakers were doing in northern Canadian waters, and why. The time is April, so it is still cold up there. Justin takes a small team, which includes Carrie, whom he has previously almost married. The initial commander of the team is Alisha, with whom Justin definitely does not get on well. The remaining characters do not provide any great surprises for this genre, although in part this may be because they are needed to drive the plot.
    The team goes north, and we get some good descriptions of life around Baffin and Ellesmere Island, specifically Grise Fiord, Arctic Bay, and some other places I had never heard of before. Rightly or wrongly, I got a feeling for the way the few people there live, so the descriptions of the background are effective, although I cannot comment on their accuracy. There are also background facts, and some may be misleading. One that struck me was a statement that implied that with minus two degrees (Fahrenheit)and ten degrees of wind chill, even with good protective clothing, you could die of hypothermia within an hour. I once spent a year in Canada, and I know that is not true. (Without good protective clothing that may well be true.) Even worse, one part has the hero diving into Arctic water to rescue someone from a submerged car, after having undertaken a long truck chase. Apart from shooting a pistol underwater (not a good idea), survival when he emerged would be difficult, given the long drive back.
    However, let's put such things behind us. I have seen a lot worse in best sellers! Since this book is largely plot-driven, I shall no go further, other than to say that there is a sequence of exciting action sequences, all set in fairly appalling climatic conditions, and the sequence follows logically from what has preceded each part. Bearing in mind the primary premise, the characters are reasonably well-drawn, the dialogue is usually adequate and the story drags the reader in for an exciting ride. Towards the end there is a prolonged battle description. Fictional battles are difficult to write because in genuine battles, thanks to Clausewitz's "fog of war" (which Clausewitz did not actually coin but is a summary of his thoughts), often commanders have only a vague idea what is going on and other participants only have an idea of their immediate problems. This description is realistic, the battle could go either way, both sides suffer heavy casualties, and victory goes to the side that best recognizes the advantages of terrain, and works out a way to utilize it. (You might question why that piece of terrain was where it was, though.) To summarize, the book should take the reader along for an exciting ride, and I found it quite enjoyable.

    What a great collection!  I have only read works by Ethan Jones and so a quick review of ARCTIC WARGAME is paramount here.  




    In what was his debut novel, 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.  If the other dozen thrillers are a match for Ethan's, then the set is well worth the value!!!

    The selections by Ethan Jones were spectacular but the others did not measure up. One was about a camera that took pictures of the future. I could not finish that one and just went on to the next selection. I just think 13 selections are too many to lump together.
