Description
On a remote island in the Canadian Arctic, researchers discover the wreckage of a mysterious World War II-era aircraft, a discovery that forces the Russian Federation into a shocking admission. The unmarked plane is a Soviet strategic bomber that disappeared with its crew more than fifty years ago while carrying two metric tons of weaponized anthrax.Desperate to prevent a political and diplomatic firestorm, the U.S. president dispatches a Covert-One team led by Lieutenant Colonel Jon Smith to the crash site. But others have reached the frigid, windswept island first, including an international arms dealer and his crew of vicious mercenaries. As for the Russians, they are lying: a second, even deadlier secret rests within the hulk of the lost bomber, a secret the Russians are willing to kill to protect. Trapped in a polar wilderness, Smith and his team find themselves fighting a savage war on two front—against an enemy they can see and another hiding within their own ranks.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Robert Ludlum's THE ARCTIC EVENT marks yet another posthumous novel for the legendary writer. This one is delivered by James H. Cobb and read by Jeff Woodman. Woodman elevates this serviceable spy novel with an outstanding narration. On its own, the story provides good reading as a mild diversion, but Woodman really animates the characters, handling the different accents and genders well. Listeners can feel a degree of panic as the recurring Covert One character, Jon Smith, and his crew find themselves on an Arctic island, surrounded by hostile forces. A Soviet plane that went down there in the 1950s has an anthrax payload, but there's more to this crash than biological agents--and the Iron Curtain could fall again. E.D.H.

        James H. Cobb is no Robert Ludlum. Although he wasn’t a great prose stylist, Ludlum (who died in 2001) could keep a story engine churning like nobody’s business. Compared to him, Cobb is a plodding, mechanical, cliché-ridden hired hand. And Jeff Woodman can’t do much to make things more exciting—or even interesting—as he reads this tangled tale. Woodman has the vocal talents necessary to make the third-person narration work, and he does his best to create believable voices for the male and female members of a search team and their villainous adversaries—Russians, North Koreans and private mercenaries. But Cobb undercuts him at virtually every turn, the story moving like sticky syrup as a top secret Covert-One team of specialists hunt for a crashed WWII bomber and a deadly toxin that could destroy all life on the planet. Simultaneous release with the Grand Central paperback.

        Ponderous prose and a less than credible plot-line weigh down Cobb's Covert-One novel, the seventh in a series (The Hades Factor, etc.) based on a concept created by the late Robert Ludlum. After the chance discovery of a crashed aircraft in the Arctic Circle, the Russians, who are on the verge of signing a landmark antiterrorism pact with the United States, inform President Samuel Castilla that it's a Soviet plane that went down in the 1950s while carrying a ton of weaponized anthrax. Castilla, who suspects that there's more to the story than the Russians are letting on, orders series Jonathan Smith, chief operative for the shadowy Covert-One intelligence service, and his team to investigate. Two women whose field skills are matched by their physical attractiveness join Smith, setting up predictable situations when they fall into the hands of the bad guys. Veteran thriller fans are likely to find the underlying premise behind the Russians' duplicity unconvincing.

        The latest Covert-One novel finds the intrepid, globe-trotting adventurers winging their way Arcticward to locate a half-century-old crashed Russian airplane that may be carrying two metric tons of weaponized anthrax. Butand this will come as no surprise to readers of high-concept adventure/thrillersother people are also interested in the downed plane. Oh, and the plane might also hold something even scarier than the bioweapon. Can Colonel Jon Smith and his team save the world once again? Well, of course they can: the fun in the Covert-One novels (Ludlum created the series shortly before his death in 2001) isnt wondering whether our heroes will emerge victorious but finding out how they will manage to overcome a new batch of seemingly insurmountable odds. The series has varied in quality, depending on its writers (some named, some not). This one, by the author of a handful of well-written thrillers, is quite good: fast paced, exciting, and boasting prose thats easier on the eyes thanmuch of Ludlums own appoint. Should be a winner.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2007, American Library Association.)
