This audio launch of a series featuring Marine doctor Joe Rush, who fights various military biohazards, is ICE STATION ZEBRA for the 21st century. Abel (a pseudonym for author Bob Reiss) offers an arctic thriller complete with nuclear submarines, icebreakers, wind-whipped treks across the ice, and Inuit wisdom. Narrator Ray Porter has a strong voice, good pacing, and a real talent for conversational voices. He ably keeps track of a handful of characters, and his delivery of tense scenes is taut without being overdramatic. Listeners will get a dose of Tom Clancy's penchant for lists of military hardware, but even those who don't know an M16 from an F-22 will find this a good listen.
