From the Editor

If you’re considering reading Cold, clear your calendar. This explosive thriller takes the reader on a compelling and fast-paced journey from the mountains of Utah to the Queen’s residence at Windsor Castle to the dark underbelly of modern Russia, and it is not for the faint-hearted.

The tale of how Joe Tiplady, an Irishman in London, comes to be swept up in a tidal wave of violence and retribution is a riveting and visceral read. Talking with the author, award-winning investigative journalist John Sweeney, I discovered that much of the book is inspired by real people and events—which explains in part why it is so hard to put down.

Alongside the dangerous force that is driving the story, Cold brings to life a cast of baddies led by an obese, lavender-scented madman, who haunted my thoughts long after the final page.

Can the goodness that we find in the love of a father, in the honour of a general, in characters like the young artist and in our hero, Joe, face up to such a profound evil? If you’re brave enough to go to some of the darkest corners of the globe, find out with this unforgettable thriller.

- Jane Snelgrove, Editor
