A Cold Binge

I’ve had a few mails about which books to read in what order.

Confession time – I turned to Goodreads to figure it out.

If we stick with Greenland and the Arctic, then thriller readers looking for a bit more action should definitely start with The Ice Star. It’s here that we meet Constable David Maratse for the first time. However, crime readers who are looking for an alternative – read “cold” – setting, should perhaps start with Seven Graves One Winter, although, and this is where it gets a little tricky, there are, currently, four short stories that are set prior to the events in Seven Graves One Winter, and The Ice Star for that matter.

Readers don’t need to read any of the short stories (Katabatic, Container, Tupilaq, or The Last Flight) to enjoy Seven Graves One Winter, nor do they need to read The Ice Star. But, the definitive reading order – as of July 2018 – would be this:

Of course, that’s not all the books – either planned or written.

Confused? Don’t be. Goodreads can help, and give you an idea if you even want to begin. 😉 ‘Cos it ain’t over yet.

Iceland Thriller

There’s a scene in Blood Floe where we meet several interesting people at which point a new task force and a news series is born. Without giving too much away, I can say that one of the characters in that scene is Hákon Sigurdsson, a police constable in the Icelandic State Police. He is one of the first members of the Polar Task Force with the fun nickname of PolarPol – the task force, not Hákon. I can’t imagine him thinking that was fun. And, yes, all of a sudden, a whole new series is born. I can’t say too much without giving too much away, but there are 8 countries with territories inside the Arctic – so you can see where this is going. 😉

Northern Light is the first book in the series, and is available at a crazy pre-order price on Amazon:
