Publisher's Summary

Lt. Col. Jon Smith, an army research doctor and secret agent attached to Covert-One, is tapped to lead a team to Wednesday Island, an icy patch of land between the northern coast of Canada and the Earth's magnetic Pole. There, the remains of a mysterious plane were discovered during a routine educational expedition. The plane seems to be a Russian spy plane, and the Russian government secretly revealed to the U.S. president that a lot of very dangerous anthrax may be on board. But Jon and his team aren't the only ones making their way to the plane. And when the members of the educational expedition slowly start disappearing and a team of Russian pirates take over the island, Jon's team will be lucky to get out alive.

The Arctic Event is top notch. I hope the writer will pick up the torch and continue the series. The characters become more alive than in any of the previous Covert One books. The reader does a fine job from beginning to end.

Good Story - Sound Effects Ruin Listening

This is actually a pretty good story, not nearly as random and unbelievable as most of Ludlem's stuff. The listen experience is very nearly ruined by the ridiculous sound effects added to the recording (gunshots, helicopter rotors, explosions, etc.) These effects make this is a hard book to listen to
