FreeFlow is a group of activists dedicated to freedom of information. They have evidence of a military atrocity in the Middle East and are preparing to unleash it. On the glacial rim of an erupting volcano, they christen their endeavour Operation Meltwater. Minutes later, one of them is murdered. Magnus Jonson has a long list of suspects but he's getting little help - for a group dedicated to transparency, they're a secretive bunch. But they are not the only ones with secrets. Asta, a newly qualified priest, has contacted FreeFlow with damning information about the former Bishop of Iceland. And with the return of Magnus's brother Ollie to Iceland, the feud that has haunted their family for three generations is about to reignite....

The second book I have read in the Fire and Ice series. It's a huge pity that the first of the three is not available on audible. Ridpath holds your attention throughout with the added interest of the Icelandic landscape. The author writes as if he came from Iceland himself, including enough details and ancient stories to give added interest. The books leave you wanting to know more about the country itself.
Narration is excellent as we have come to expect by Sean Barrett; I really don't know how he manages so many accents with such ease and authenticity.
Freeflow, a group of journalists, have video proof of an Israeli army atrocity in the Middle East and is all set to let the world know all about it. But, there are powers just as determined to keep that atrocity secret and are more than willing to murder to keep Israels reputation intact. The action moves to Ireland where suspicion falls on a former bishop. The story is pacey with good characters and plenty of twists.
