Publisher's Summary

Nina Granville believes her business trip to Alaska will give her a short respite from the merry-go-round that came with her engagement to Congressman Terrence Donnelly. But instead of allowing her the peace she craves, Nina's getaway from the public eye means that no one witnesses her abduction into a very cold hell.
Taken by a mountain man who calls himself Baer and then transported to a remote cabin surrounded by nothing but frozen wilderness, Nina descends into a nightmare of terror, privation, and bitter cold. Nina's privileged life did not prepare her for imprisonment at the hands of this survivalist trapper. If she is to live - and to escape - Nina realizes she must do it on her own.
Undaunted and with startling determination, Nina pits herself against her captor, her fear, and nature itself in a battle for her life - but can she win against such deadly opponents?

Kept waiting for it to come together.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. It seemed to go on forever. I kept thinking if I hung in there it would be wrapped up with a great ending but it didn't.

Has A Cold War turned you off from other books in this genre?

yes

What about Teri Clark Linden’s performance did you like?

I was surprised at how well she was able to switch voices. The main antagonist was not an easy character for a female to voice.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No way. Too unsettling, gross, and too long without reason for it to keep going on.

Any additional comments?

I don't get all the great reviews. Felt like an editor should have stepped in and tightened this up. Too many odd plot parts that took away, not added to the story. Readers should know there is a lot of gross and crude dialogue that goes on with the main antagonist. Plus I couldn't find a character that I really liked. I think I was supposed to like the female lead but I just couldn't. Written well, especially dialogue but not tight, without likable characters or a realistic female lead. And it kept going on and on.

Excellent suspense novel

Choosing between 4 and 5 stars was difficult because the story is a superb one and the author spends far too many words on a specific part causing boredom on the part of the listener. Ideally about 60 to 90 minutes should be cut from the time that was devoted to repetitive details of Nina's being held by Baer in Alaska.

On the very positive side is the creative use of the poem Cremation of Sam McGee by Robert Service. In my view use of that specific poem, with which Baer (the primary antagonist) was enthralled, added immensely to the story.

So I give this novel 5 stars with some reservations. A Cold War is an excellent suspense novel with a nice surprise ending. The major weakness is that is repetitive and boring near the middle of the book.

Not a book I would recommend at all.

Disappointed. I had expected more. It was so so predictable and therefore I lost interest and found it difficult to finish.
