A household name for more than thirty years, Robert Ludlum has sold hundreds of millions of copies worldwide and set the standard by which thriller novels are measured. Hachette Audio is proud to publish the next installment in his beloved Covert-One series.

Lt. Col. Jon Smith, an army research doctor and secret agent attached to Covert-One, is tapped to lead a team to Wednesday Island, an icy patch of land between the northern coast of Canada and the Earth's magnetic Pole. There, the remains of a mysterious plane were discovered during a routine educational expedition. The plane seems to be a Russian spy plane, and the Russian government secretly revealed to the US President that a lot of very dangerous anthrax may be on board. But Jon and his team aren't the only ones making their way to the plane. And when the members of the educational expedition slowly start disappearing and a team of Russian pirates take over the island, Jon's team will be lucky to get out alive.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Robert Ludlum’s The Arctic Event marks yet another posthumous novel for the legendary writer. This one is delivered by James H. Cobb and read by Jeff Woodman. Woodman elevates this serviceable spy novel with an outstanding narration. On its own, the story provides good reading as a mild diversion, but Woodman really animates the characters, handling the different accents and genders well.”


  • “Fast paced, exciting, and boasting prose that’s easier on the eyes than much of Ludlum’s own appoint.”


  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " Nothing like a good old fashioned suspense novel between the U.S. and Russia. A bomber from 50 years ago resurfaces along with its load of anthrax. The Covert One group is called in to handle the situation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Jennifer | 2/9/2014

    " It has the typical characteristics of a covert one novel, but not one of the best. It was vaguely enjoyable and decent to read, but the covert one franchise has done much better. "
