Publisher's Summary

Finn’s search for his memory of one fateful night leads him to Iceland—only to be followed by an unhinged assassin intent on stopping him—in the riveting follow-up to Steel Fear, from the New York Times bestselling writing team Webb & Mann, combat-decorated Navy SEAL Brandon Webb and award-winning author John David Mann.

“One of the best crime novels of the year . . . a brilliant blend of procedural mystery and geopolitical thriller.”—Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author of Hunting Time

Disgraced Navy SEAL Finn is on the run. A wanted man since he jumped ship from the USS Abraham Lincoln, he’s sought for questioning in connection to war crimes committed in Yemen by a rogue element in his SEAL team. But his memory of that night—as well as the true fate of his mentor and only friend, Lieutenant Kennedy—is a gaping hole.

Finn learns that three members of his team have been quietly redeployed to Iceland, which is a puzzle in itself; the tiny island nation is famous for being one of the most peaceful, crime-free places on the planet.

His mission is simple: track down the three corrupt SEALs and find out what really happened that night in Yemen. But two problems stand in his way. On his first night in town a young woman mysteriously drowns—and a local detective suspects Finn’s involvement. What’s worse, a SEAL-turned-contract-killer with skills equal to Finn’s own has been hired to make sure he never gets the answers he’s looking for. And he’s followed Finn all the way to the icy north.

Great, non-stop suspense: Now just waiting for the movie

I just love the book from beginning to end, I can’t wait till the movie comes out because it’s anything like the book and it’s going to be fabulous.

Outstanding

The story is excellent. Great characters and. Wry well written. But the narration is simply fantastic. Hands down the best narrator I’ve heard, and I’ve listened to hundreds of books. I own the paper version, but when I read it I only hear this narrators voice. Well done!!

Murder in Iceland

Okay I will be honest. Not as good as the first book Steel Fear . But still very entertaining. Chief Finn is an engaging main character. Plot was decent, but some twists and saves seemed contrived. Never the less looking forward to the next book. One cool thing is the book is set in Iceland. I enjoyed little tid bits added about the country. Sorry one additional, the narrator was excellent, capturing the Icelandic dialogue well.

Another outstanding story from the Webb/Mann team

I liked this one even more than their first book. Both were fantastic listens. Looking forward to the next one! The narrator was outstanding! He made it very interesting with his mastery of the Icelandic dialect and his ability to switch so fluidly between characters.

Nice to have Finn back in action

A good follow-up to Steel Fear. While it isn't necessary to have had the previous book you will understand some of the reference points better if you have. The story moves briskly, great new characters introduced, and the descriptions of Iceland and it's culture are very interesting. Some of the plot pieces and devices toward the end don't all make sense (dont passports have holographic anti forgery tech now?) it still is a heck of an enjoyable read and I look forward to the authors next book.

What a GREAT book!

I love stories where the authors are so creative and skillful that I am drawn into the story, can fully feel and see the settings, and am fooled by the plot. Cold Fear does exactly that.

Easily on par with the best of Grisham, Flynn, Child and Ludlum!

Great book!
