Publisher's Summary

In the feeble light of a London winter, Joe Tiplady walks his dog in the snow. He is not alone. Two men are tracking him, as is a woman with wolf eyes. Soon Joe will find himself caught in a storm of violence and retribution that he does not yet understand.
Around the world, a chain of events is in motion that will make Joe a priceless target. A retired Soviet general hunts for his missing daughter after a series of brutal murders. A ruthless assassin loses something so precious he will do anything to get it back. And in the mountains of Utah, a brilliant ex-CIA chief wrestles with his religion.
In the shadow of them all lies Zoba, strongman ruler of Russia and puppet-master of the world's darkest operatives. Can Joe save himself from this dangerous web of power and revenge? Where can he run when there's nowhere left to hide?
Please note: this book contains strong language and scenes of torture.

Too graphic torture scene

Too graphic torture scene. Deleted it. Too hard to follow. The Mormon stuff was interesting

No other word to use except BAD!

What disappointed you about Cold?

I was really anticipating listening to a good spy novel, however I was left extremely disappointed. I would think an author would do some research before publishing a novel. His references to Mormonism are way off. Besides the stereotypical things about Mormons (Salt Lake City, Utah, temple, missionaries, etc.) the author demonstrates very little knowledge about Mormon beliefs. That shows the author is deliberately trying to cast Mormons in a bad light or he is completely ignorant.

The characters did not seem realistic whatsoever. They came across as cheesy and undeveloped. I could only stand listening to this book for about two hours. I wish I would have read other's reviews about this book.

Would you ever listen to anything by John Sweeney again?


Would you listen to another book narrated by Alan Smyth?

Maybe. The Irish accent took some getting used to.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

Watch out for the weird sexual torture scenes.
