Finally available as an ebook (and cheap). I considered buying this in Canada or USA but it would have been too expensive - it is rather short and maybe not even that good. Putting other books on hold for this, started today.

I DNF'd at 77% in. It wasn't holding my interest. A good book keeps me interested and I finish it in a day or so... work allowing and all. This one, I started it before the 23rd... actual date can be found over on BookLikes, but it has been a week or so.

It was too repetitive, no surprises.

I received a copy of this from NetGalley for an honest review. ( )

Here's a timely new release from Penguin Canada.

Red Snow is set in Vancouver, Canada - now. The 2010 Winter Olympics are set to begin February 12, 2010. Slade's novel opens in December 2009. A celebrated snowboarder goes off the beaten trail, on a route he's known to take. Part of him finishes the run. His head doesn't. Additional crimes draw in the Special X investigation unit of the RCMP. (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) The 'X' unit are the 'psycho hunters." It seems an old nemesis is not done with the unit.

This was the first Michael Slade book I had read. (There are 14 others) Past crimes and criminals are explained, but in the beginning I felt like I was playing catch up as there are constant references to the past. I was able to get up to speed fairly quickly and got caught up in the tale. Slade incorporates lots of elements into his novels. The crimes are quite brutal, yet ingenious. Locked room mysteries and forensic techniques are effectively utilized. The weapons used are quite diabolical. Historical details are woven into the tale.

Lots and lots of action - quite frankly, I wondered if anyone would be left standing at the end. Without giving it away, the madman's plot is very, very plausible and quite frightening.

If you've read James Rollins' Sigma Force novels, you would enjoy Michael Slade.

Slade is the nom de plume of Vancouver lawyer Jay Clarke. Clarke specializes in cases involving the criminally insane. His novels draw upon that knowledge, Clarke's contacts within the RCMP and his own family history to give his novels a ring of authenticity. ( )

Just in time to scare the liver out of people heading for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, Michael Slade (a.k.a. Jay Clarke, Vancouver lawyer, with several different co-authors) has a thriller tailored for the slopes.

Whistler is cut off from communication with the outside, while a villain called Mephisto (recurring from previous Slade novels) picks off the members of an elite squad of RCMP. And that's just the beginning. Red snow, indeed.

This one is guaranteed to keep you awake with the lights burning. If you're planning to attend the Olympics, you may want to find some other novel for the trip.
