The Arctic Event is the seventh book in the Covert-One Series originally created by Robert Ludlum, and I’m willing to say it’s my favorite so far. The Gayle Lynds novels are particularly good (and some of the best in the series), but Cobb did a fantastic job of capturing his readers’ attention in this unique addition to the Covert-One family. The storyline features a new character – Valentina Metrace (a bond-girl type agent and future love interest to Jon Smith), and a killer setting – The Canadian Arctic. I simply love the foreboding, adventuresome, melancholy of the arctic cold, and this novel made it come alive. Here’s to hoping that Mr. Cobb considers writing again!
