Yukon Audit by Ken Baird is a thriller beyond all thrillers. The Yukon is a mystical place. It is the land of the midnight sun. It is the home of the Klondike gold rush. And it is a place to launder money with a gold mine. Brody lives in a tiny cabin on the Yukon River. He’s happy with his life, flying an old plane and running a repair shop, living alone with his dogs. He doesn’t like phones or the police and is happy to live the quiet life. Until he repairs a car for a beautiful woman who hires him to fly her over a gold mine. Seeing nothing sinister in her request, they go off and, on their journey, they spot a missing plane. Landing, they investigate and find it contains two dead men – Brody knows the pilot and the woman knows the passenger. All of a sudden, Brody’s quiet life is turned upside down as he comes to the attention of the FBI and the Mounties, not to mention a couple of underworld gangs. Having to deal with romance, a kidnapping, a beating and a hijacking, Brody is determined to get to the bottom of this.
Yukon Audit by Ken Baird is a brilliant novel, packed full of action and color. It is one of those page-turners that are impossible to put down and, indeed, I didn’t. For starters, it is full of wonderful descriptions about the Yukon, descriptions that really make me want to go there. Second, the plot is amazingly well developed, with plenty of action and lots of twists and turns that keep a reader on their toes and firmly entrenched in the novel. The characters were full of life and well matched to the story. Ken Baird clearly knows a great deal about the Yukon and it shows in the plot, which is intricate and tightly woven. If you love thrillers, mysteries and adventures, with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure, you will love this book. An absolutely riveting story that you will not want to let go of.
