Snow Men by Andrew Ceroni is somewhat of an escapist adventure-cum-thriller. Dave McClure is an ex-FBI agent whose job resulted in his not being with his wife and child when they were killed in a car accident. He blames himself and makes the decision to embark on a journey to the wilderness of Alaska, where the harshness of survival will either bring back his reason for being alive, or take his life. A mysterious visit from his former boss prior to his departure hints that all is not as it should be, but Dave turns down the offer of an assignment and sets off on his journey to Alaska. Dave’s expedition, however, soon takes an unexpected turn as he finds a body that has clearly met an untimely death. What he discovers eventually leads to his having to call on all his former training, not only to survive but to avert an international disaster.
This is a stunning story involving espionage, terrorism, murder and survival. The author, Andrew Ceroni, has written an incredibly descriptive account of the Alaskan wilderness that would be a stand-alone story on its own, let alone a thriller, as this former FBI agent uncovers a secret world in the wilds of the northern hemisphere. The various aspects are cleverly woven to become a story of intrigue, tension, and excitement, and it is certainly a page-turner that had me on the edge of my seat. I will definitely seek out other works by this author. For those who love white-knuckle thrillers with adventure and extreme survival, this is one not to miss.
