Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 2/19/2014

    " Very Good; stand-alone where a group of terrorists trys to hijack a Coast Guard ship to shoot a launching space shuttle out of the sky; a bit jumbled with the varied story lines "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 2/18/2014

    " Good Read, about space shuttle, coast guard, terrorism.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeannette | 2/12/2014

    " This book is well-written for a political thriller, but I didn't like it nearly as much as the Kate Shugak books. It didn't have the Alaskan setting and the strong lead female character I love in those books. It was ok, for a thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janna | 1/30/2014

    " I prefer this author's Kate Shugak series, but her stand alones are pretty good. I'm generally not crazy about terrorism plots, but this book pulled me along for the ride. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Carter | 1/27/2014

    " Love the insight into the USCG. They don't get enough credit. Terrorism thriller that doesn't disappoint. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 1/27/2014

    " Very well done and a worthwhile read. 8 of 10 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Muriel Kudera | 1/24/2014

    " This was different from other Stabenow books I have read and I thought it quite absorbing and perhaps more timely. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denise | 1/3/2014

    " It was slow to get started but gets better as it goes along. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 12/6/2013

    " scary tale of terrorists, spies, astronauts and coasties "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 11/30/2013

    " This book surprised me -- I've read Stabenow's work on Kate Shugak & liked it but this one is totally different (following a terrorist) and very good. I wouldn't really call it a mystery, really a thriller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 10/28/2013

    " Fun, but the other stuff is better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 10/28/2013

    " Found it a bit too contrived, Dana Stabenow just seemed to try too hard with this one. I love the Kate Shugak mysteries, I have been reading them since the first book came out years and years ago. I'll stick with Kate, this one didn't really do much for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 10/17/2013

    " This is an interesting thriller involving the Coast Guard, NASA and a middle eastern terror plot. A fun read........... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Blackbern | 9/30/2013

    " picked this up on book sale table and really enjoyed it. Lots of research by the author who went on military tour to get the story straight. There was also an astronaut, politician and a great plot of terrorist revenge... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 7/7/2013

    " A very competent, satisfying thriller. Many different plot lines and characters all converge at the end. Quite suspenseful! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mom | 4/23/2013

    " Another Kate Shugak novel, with a timely plot. Good read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noelle Rogers | 2/2/2013

    " A little too graphic, but still a good book. Odd how it came on the heals of three cups of tea...both having to do with the middle east. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 1/8/2013

    " Really good. Fast pasted I was a little bit lost being the second book but really fun. Good story and on edge in parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 11/17/2012

    " a stand alone book (at least so far). Modern day terrorist thriller with the Coast Guard as the heros. First half was tough to track as she laid the groundwork. The second half clipped right along. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancye | 10/23/2012

    " I enjoyed this book that carries some characters over from Blindfold Game. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kat Hodgins | 9/25/2012

    " Not my favorite Stabenow book, but still a good read. I found this one a little slow off the top, I didn't really get caught up in it until I was at least half way through. Was a bit predicatable as well. Entertaining, but not her best work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clay Davis | 7/13/2012

    " Could have done without the pro-legalization of drugs part of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brad | 5/13/2012

    " Perfectly average thriller. Another solid airplane read, but nothing memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 4/10/2012

    " Interesting plot, and well-written, but I wish there had been one clear hero to root for, rather than a too-vast cast of only loosely-connected good guys. And I never did quite understand Isa's motivations. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tapley | 9/21/2011

    " I enjoyed what I read ok, but it failed to draw me in -- I think this was because all of the jumping around in time from character to character slowed down the narrative, and it just didn't feel suspenseful enough to me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharron | 8/1/2011

    " not set in Alaska. not interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn Rose | 6/30/2011

    " Good race to the crossing ending. Maybe it's me, but I found the "where are they now" material confusing. I should have stopped short of reading it and let my imagination fill in the blanks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maple | 6/26/2011

    " "A renegade terrorist with a personal and vindictive grudge against all things American targets the space shuttle as NASA prepares to launch an important mission with a high-profile payload and a wealthy visitor on board." "

About the Author
Author Dana Stabenow

Dana Stabenow was born in Anchorage and raised on seventy-five-foot fish tender in the Gulf of Alaska. She knew there was a warmer, drier job out there somewhere and found it in writing. Her first science fiction novel, Second Star, sank without a trace but has since been resurrected as an e-book. Her first crime fiction novel, A Cold Day for Murder, won an Edgar Award, and her first thriller, Blindfold Game, hit the New York Times bestseller list.
