A household name for more than thirty years, Robert Ludlum has sold hundreds of millions of copies worldwide and set the standard by which thriller novels are measured. Hachette Audio is proud to publish the next installment in his beloved Covert-One series.
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 US 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.

Robert Ludlums THE ARCTIC EVENT marks yet another posthumous novel for the legendary writer. This one is delivered by James H. Cobb and read by Jeff Woodman. Woodman elevates this serviceable spy novel with an outstanding narration. On its own, the story provides good reading as a mild diversion, but Woodman really animates the characters, handling the different accents and genders well. Listeners can feel a degree of panic as the recurring Covert One character, Jon Smith, and his crew find themselves on an Arctic island, surrounded by hostile forces. A Soviet plane that went down there in the 1950s has an anthrax payload, but theres more to this crash than biological agents--and the Iron Curtain could fall again.
