He also uncovers a plot to assassinate the current liberal President of the United States by members of the cell.
"Arctic Fire" is a fast read but by the end...there were several loose ends that had not been resolved and the reader was left hanging. I enjoyed most of Frey's other books more than this one.
The action moves from Mexico to Alaska to the U.S. East Coast and several other locales, with the important parts of the story taking place in Alaska. The descriptions and local color are excellent, as is the writing overall. The plot is compelling and the pace is unrelenting. If you like a good thriller with some military aspects, you'll certainly enjoy this book.
There are a couple of things to note. For one, it's not especially clear who the protagonist is. Is it Jack, the Wall Street guy turned action-adventure hero? Seemingly so. But is it really Troy, who appears briefly at the start of the novel and then disappears? Possibly. Especially because of the ending.
I'm not going to put spoilers in this review. But let's just say that the ending is ... strange. And jarringly unsatisfactory. The author wraps up the story very nicely, then puts in a last chapter that undoes just about everything and leaves the reader wondering. Certainly, it's a setup for a sequel, and I would love to read it. But it's ... well ... you just have to read it for yourself, but as I promised, I won't spoil a very big surprise by revealing it here.
I often close reviews with the question, "Should you read this book?" Yes, you should, and you should be prepared for a huge shock at the conclusion.
The characters are crude cartoons of people from bad tv shows. There are no believable or likable characters. It reads like a bad Vince Flynn story or the last season of 24.
The ending is neither believable nor well written.
Don't waste your time or money on this.
I intend to send this back for a refund, something I have never done before.
The author also tends to tell you the same thing, over and over. I'm done with this writer. No one but one of his friends or family could have given this a 5 star review.

I will admit, crime scene, spy novels not the first book I download. But will admit, I did completely enjoy this book. Thank you, Mr Frey.Published 16 days ago by JMBooher
The writing is very skillful; an edge of your seat thriller. The contrast between good and evil requires a more sophisticated view than most thrillers. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Dixie
I love fast paced books like this one. Couldn't put this book down. Can't wait to read the other 2 books.
