I know what you’re thinking, the Sandstone Trail (Cheshire, England) is a long way from Greenland. But you never know when inspiration for your next cold-blooded killer is going to strike.
The idea for Royal Marine Lieutenant Mike Burwardsley was born on February 11th, 2015. The Ice Star was already in its third or fifth reincarnation, but Burwardsley had yet to really take form.
He’s not a nice guy, but he is very good at what he does, when he gets the chance to do it his way. He is also tall. Is he Jack Reacher tall? Who knows – there’s quite a difference in height between the literary Reacher and the one in the movies. Burwardsley is definitely in the middle. He also has a sidekick, a very competent Sergeant, from another legendary regiment in the British Army – hint, not very tall at all.
Just what are the Brits doing in Greenland? Good question. You’ll just have to wait and see.
The Ice Star is available for pre-order from Amazon at a reduced price. Spoiler alert – ex British Army and Navy soldiers play a significant role in The Ice Star.
