    Review copyWhite Death begins with a disaster at the annual Iditarod dog-sled race, but quickly moves to the Arctic Imperative Conference where Dr. Kate Foster is speaking to the assembled group. Although the speech does not go as planned, it does lead to a grant and an opportunity to join a research team at Dead Bear Island.Dr. Foster arrives at Deadhorse airport at the same time as a team of investigators sent to look into a multiple homicide at the very destination she was heading to.When one of the secondary characters says, "This is like in that horror movie where the monster from outer space picks off the scientists in Antarctica one-by-one. Man, I loved that movie." We all know exactly what he was referring to. In some respects one may think White Death is derivative of The Thing, but actually the similarities are few.As the mystery unravels, the terror mounts, and the death count rises. Things are never quite what they seem in White Death. One thing I did enjoy with this book was the way the author kept it real. It took very little suspension of disbelief to enjoy Jack Castle's latest thriller.The facts page which precedes this work of fiction is well worth your time. More thriller than horror, but certainly recommended.White Death is available in both paperback and e-book formats from EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing.From the author's bio - Jack Castle loves adventure. He has traveled the globe as a professional stuntman for stage, film, and television. While working for Universal Studios, he met Cinderella at Walt Disney World and they were soon married. After moving to Alaska, he worked as a tour guide, police officer, Criminal Justice professor, and certified weapons instructor. He has been stationed on a remote island in the Aleutians as a Response Team Commander and his last job in the Arctic Circle was protecting engineers from ravenous polar bears. It was this last experience which actually inspired White Death.

    Monster in the Arctic. I loved this book! Extremely suspenseful writing. Non-stop action. Just my kind of book. Romantic chemistry between male and female characters but not even a kiss? The "monster" was apparently killed several times but inexplicably kept coming back. Otherwise it was a great believable plot. Some unanswered questions and loose ends. Copyright October 2016.

    A very close second favorite Jack Castle book. This was actually my introductory book to the author and I loved both him and the book from the first chapter. It was hard to put down. I recommend this to anyone who loves reading thrillers. Or just loves reading. Or who can read. Just read it.

    An Arctic research facility is attacked and there are no survivors among the scientist that were there. Coming to assist them, Dr. Kate Foster, joins the detectives on their way to the island where the research is taking place. The researches are looking for evidence of an ancient culture and no one understands why they would be killed doing their work. But the detectives and Kate discover that maybe they were killed by other humans, but maybe by some large creature. The group is trapped on the island and they begin to lose members to something. They decide they must go to the dig site to see if they can find answers and that is where they find a group of mercenaries who have been sent to steal the artifacts that have been found. Kate and Detective James Decker find themselves in a fight for their lives in the frozen north.I found the book to be interesting and full of action. Castle, having worked and lived in Alaska gives excellent descriptions of what life is like there. I hope that James and Kate come back in a sequel to keep up the search for the ancient peoples. (

    Super intense! What a great book. The scene where Decker and Kate barely escape the collapsing temple and then the bear comes up out of the water... That was terrifying. And poor Grimm! I really liked Kate as the main character, she came across as very believable to me. I loved her attitude. There were two reasons I didn't give this book five stars, though--when Kate saw one of the men in parkas standing outside just after the bear attack, and then her discovery of the important dig site, gave the impression that the bear attacks were intentional. But then when the guys in parkas show up later, it turned out the bear attacks had nothing to do with them... That in and of itself isn't a bad thing, but I didn't like the shift from the bear being the major conflict to these random guys that just happen to be there right after the first bear attack kills the original team. Kate fainting at the end was also annoying. Overall, I'd still recommend the book, though!

    I really enjoyed this book. This book is set in the Arctic Circle at a research facility. The author starts the book off with the Iditarod dog race and left me hanging and clutching my seat until the very end. The story is very well written and has a few twists and turns, including more than one "bad guy". I can't wait to read the author's other books.

    I tried to like it. I like the author's writing style. It flowed smooth and drew you into the story. Excellent editing done on the book also. Even though it was well written I just couldn't get into the story. I stopped believing in monsters a long time ago and it became tedious to me. If you are into monsters books this would be a good read but it's just not me. Sorry Mr. Castle.

    Good story, liked the characters. Felt the romance between Kate and Jack was forced. Seemed like the story was being setup for a series, but see no indication one will happen. The ending was a little confusing.

    Monsters, mercenaries and more!! This is a thrilling icy adventure. I think it would make a good movie on the Sci-Fi channel.

    I did enjoy this one. It moves fast thru some of the plot but that was okay.

    This was a nice little thriller, a bit graphic but gripping. It was thought provoking to think about undiscovered civilisations being revealed under the global warming melting snow. This thriller involves an enormous prehistoric bear which may sound far fetched, but this author makes it totally beluevable

    Polar Bear?Great thriller. Its full of action moving. Lots of death and dying but maybe just a bit of love. Must read for any action \thriller reader

    Started out with interest and awe and fell into boring half way through the book. A giant prehistoric bear in the deep of the artic capable of mindless killing of humans and yet can be controlled by the melodic tune on a flute. This is where it went tits up for me. Too much even for my over fertile imagination. And then there is the improbable lovey dovey stuff between a battle hardened detective and a smart ass research scientist who together fight off the weather, a ravenous bear beast and mercenaries intend on stealing archaeological discoveries destined for private collection. I tried to be kind to this book but found it unsustainable.

    On the edge of your seat!I had trouble putting this book down when I started reading it. The beginning of the book drew me in and was filled with danger and excitement. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was the way it ended, with the story not complete.

    Awesome!!!!I love this book, takes animal attacks to a new level. I can't wait for the sequel, to see where he takes these characters. They are full of grit and gumption,, no holds barred characters that grab hold of the story and take off full speed.

    Do most of my reading thru kindle unlimited and free book sites but somehow got a free copy of this one. Not available on kindle unlimited so probably won't remember to check the writer's other works but the book itself was good to read.Action, cold, scenery, cold scenery, murder, lots there basically.Thinking back, think got it from library thing, forgot to review it here but did on amazon.

    It was indeed an action thriller. It gripped me right from the prologue, until the very last scene. Mr. Castle's experience during his travels in Alaska and his apparent encounters with wild life has lent a real dimension to this book. There were some great, some weird but lovable, some crooked characters. I loved the protagonists and I hope they return in a sequel. I would have loved it even more if there had been some more of a "Treasure Hunting" angle built it, some more clues that they had to follow to reach the dig site and the chambers within. May be it is just the Treasure hunter in me talking :-)

    Definitely worth reading! Yet another page turner from Mr Castle. Just when you think you have it figured out... you find that you don't. Full of interesting characters and suspenseful situations with a bit of humor thrown in for good measure. Definitely a good read that kept me up far too late because I just had to finish it. I can't wait to see what Mr Castle comes up with next.
