Publisher's Summary

At 65 degrees below zero, exposed human flesh freezes solid within three minutes.
Retired Marine Master Sergeant Marcus Johnson returned to his family homestead in rural Alaska after 20 years chasing bad men. Now he wants nothing but to hunt and fish and run his trapline in peace and quiet, and no more war.
Meanwhile, lurking deep in a long forgotten bunker in the remote arctic hills is a decades-old secret that could not be destroyed, and was never meant to be rediscovered.

Couldn't put it down!

I was a bit leery about buying this one but am sure glad I did. The narrator is the author himself, which I usually find to not work, In this case he was perfect for the book. Like any book, it had a couple weak spots but overall was a real page turner. It was very fast moving, and even the flashbacks worked fine without distracting from the main story. I highly recommend this one and am looking forward to hearing more from this author.

65 below

Any additional comments?

I found 65 Below to be an enjoyable audiobook to listen to.. It had enough action and intrigue to carry you all the way through the book - it was hard to pause.. And the plot taking place in Alaska gave it some interesting twists. .

Good but its got faults !

If your considering this I'd suggest you listen to the sample as the author is an interesting narrator, and he is appalling at British accents. I am not convinced that he's done himself a favour by reading the book himself. He also should have invested in as good editor, as there are numbers of faults that grate after a while. Mistakes like the Albania being in the Baltics, and the use of "leaped" instead of "leapt" . After a while you start listening for mistakes, rather than the detail of the plot.
Still its a good action yarn that rips a long at a fair pace, so its not all bad.

About 65 points below average

Although I endorse the views expressed by Joy of Ipswich when she points out the appalling factual errors and hideous attempts at British accents, I fear she is rather too kind to the author. I found this book to be so badly written I was desperate to reach the end. The characters are not even two-dimensional and it is narrated in a deeply irritating melodramatic way. The all action hero is as proudly celibate as a monk and writes terrifyingly bad poetry which the author inflicts on us, but none of this is supposed to be humorous. The villains all have an evil glint in their eye while the good guys are square-jawed all-American warriors. Well, you get the picture – I'm a big fan of thrillers, but this was just dire.
