    One thought on “Cold Blood”

    1. Cold Blood is an exciting and fast paced story which any fans of authors like Andy Mcnab and Stephen Leather will love.Aidan Snow used to be in the SAS but having left that life behind has started a new career as a teacher. Unfortunately sometimes events from the past don't stay buried and they return to haunt us.I have to say to start with I did slightly struggle to get into the story as it is so fast paced. It jumps around from different characters and to different countries. Once I got into i [...]

    2. What most interested me about Cold Blood, a political crime thriller by British author Alex Shaw, is its setting, the former Soviet Union controlled country of Ukraine now dealing with its new status as a market economy in the new Europe.Most thrillers use standard, ‘safe’ location that are familiar to most world travellers, such as New York, Washington DC, London, Paris and Rome. The Kiev presented in Shaw’s novel feels like the tension levels have been kicked up several gears, with crimi [...]

    3. The story starts in Poland 10 years earlier (1996), where Aiden Snow is part of a 4 man SAS training team. They were there to advise the Polish Police counter-terrorism team. Lucky them, in their first real action, they happen on a bank robbery in progress. Unfortunately for them, the leader of the gang, Bull, was ex Russian Spetznas and had set up two vehicles with car bombs to aid in their escape. The bombs were detonated just as Snow's convoy was driving by them and he ends up pinned to his s [...]

    4. The first half is a slow burn with a slew of characters to keep track of. The action kicks into high gear at the midway point and builds crescendo to a rewarding climax. Aidan Snow is my kind of protagonist, an anti-hero with inner demons seeking redemption, backed by a well-defined supporting cast. The writing is strong, as is the dialogue and the descriptive geography. If this is your preferred genre, you won't be disappointed.

    5. Cold Blood is a post-cold war thriller set mainly in Ukraine and Britain. Aiden Snow is an ex-SAS man haunted by a mission that went wrong. He is biding his time in the Ukrainian capital as an honest-to-goodness school teacher when his past catches up with him. Post-soviet politics is a very complicated affair, the novel makes clear, with no clear-cut good guys and bad guys, and where loyalties bleed into one another - literally. I would say rather too complicated. After starting with a bang, au [...]

    6. A masterly crafted thrillerAidan Snow, a trained SAS soldier, is in Poland to help train Polish soldiers using SAS methods. Whilst training, a call goes out that a bank is being robbed. As they are the closest people to the robbery, they respond. What they are not expecting is for two bombs to detonate at either end of the road. Many of the team are badly injured or killed and Aidan is trapped in the vehicle they’d used to travel to the site. The mastermind of the attack looks Aidan in the eye [...]

    7. Cold blood. Alex ShawBook one in the Aidan Snow series. Snows past is laid out in the first part of this action thrilleren the story and action intensifies. Snows S.A.S. training kicks in, as he fights to survive. A very believable thriller, full of an intriguing cast of villains. A great read!!

    8. sometimes difficult to track the different characters with proper and common names in different languages used interchangeably. however, the story line and twists and turns were leading and enjoyable!

    9. the author has a magnificent plot! however, jumping time periods and an over-abundance of eastern european, unpronouncable (therefore unremembered) names makes this a real tough read.
