Snow


Three hunters find a crashed cocaine plane in the Montana wilderness. Each has a reason to steal the cocaine – who will?

The two who do steal it soon find themselves hunted by the Mexican cocaine cartel, the DEA, Las Vegas killers, their guide, and the police of several states.

Zack, a former NFL star now a TV sports icon, owes two million to some nasty people in Vegas. Steve, a Wall Street broker, may have lost all of his and Zack’s investments. Curt, their guide, a half-Cheyenne mountain man, is trying to save his ranch from an energy company takeover.

Diego is an executioner for the cocaine cartel. María Christina, a Harvard grad and Yale MBA, runs the cartel. Whitney Castro is a black girl from the Denver slums, now a brilliant DEA agent. Kenny Stauffenberg is an easy-going Montana sheriff who never gives up a hunt.

From the frozen peaks of Montana to the heights of Wall Street, the slums of Denver and the million-dollar tables at Vegas, SNOW is an electric portrait of today’s American culture, the invisible line between good and evil, and what people will do in their frantic search for love and freedom.
  


My Review


Wow. This is my first reaction after reading this book. I have seen this author's books around but yet, this is my first time actually reading one. Now, that I have, I plan to go back and check out Mr. Bond's prior novels.

From the beginning, the middle and the end; there was plenty of action to keep the story moving. All of the characters had a role and where in the story for a purpose. No one was just in the story as a filler. Even though they were outlaws, I actually felt bad for Zack and Steve. They really were good guys that found themselves in a situation that they could not pass up. Speaking of bad guys, Diego is like one of the guys you would see in a Western movie. The type that you won't want tracking you. Snow is a top notch thriller!



MIKE BOND has been called the “master of the existential thriller” by the BBC and “one of the 21st century’s most exciting authors” by the Washington Times. He is a bestselling novelist, environmental activist, international energy expert, war and human rights correspondent and award-winning poet who has lived and worked in many remote and dangerous parts of the world. His critically acclaimed novels depict the innate hunger of the human heart for what is good, the intense joys of love, the terror and fury of battle, the sinister vagaries of international politics and multinational corporations, and the beauty of the vanishing natural world.
