A really good exciting thriller set mostly in a nuclear submarine and the Arctic. Definitely a satisfying read!

Cayman 2024 - #7 - This was a bit of a disappointment compared to previous MacLean books i have read. Actually it was more creepy than the normal suspenseful adventure of good vs. evil. Structure was unique as we follow the Interpol Drug Officer on a mission to Amsterdam, accompanied by two lovely younger female agents.....having no real idea why or what for. Eventually you get enough info to grasp the task at hand, sort of. Lots of clever, fearless, life-threatening adventures ensue.....but not the happiest of endings....and again....a creepy setting that i never felt comfortable in....i mean the cover speaks for itself!… (més)

Not precisely enjoyable. It's not exciting because it is so oddly dated. On the other hand it is an interesting example of the WWII thriller. It is typical Alistair MacLean, with all the murders by the double agents, and the reveals. I liked the snow plow escape sequence.
