Operation Snow Queen

(The ninth book in the Jim Grant Thriller series)
A novel by

“You could well be the worst typist in the Corps. Which is a shame because you could have been one of the best soldiers I ever trained.”

Sgt Hopkins looked at Pte Grant. “Being good at weapons drills and unarmed combat isn’t everything. But what you’ve done today. That’s a different matter.”

“What have I done today?”

“The number one rule of any soldier, combat, clerk or engineer. What every soldier learns. Is that you don’t fight for your government, your queen or your country. You fight for the man beside you. You help dig his trench. You watch his back. And you throw yourself on the grenade to save him.”

“I didn’t throw myself on a grenade.”

“You ruined your career and your future for the man beside you at Waterloo Station. I hope he appreciates what you’ve done.”

3BAPD, Bracht, Germany

Snake Pass saw Jim Grant sent to America, and before Jamaica Plain saw Grant recruited by Boston PD, and even before the Black Hawk Down incident when he was in the British Army. Before all of that there was Operation Snow Queen. With only two years’ service, Grant is posted to Germany after a runaway suitcase at Waterloo Station breaks a civilian passenger’s leg. He replaces a Company Clerk who lost his head in an accident, and a smuggling ring that doesn’t want him. Following an explosion at the Ammunition Depot, and a court martial in Dusseldorf, Grant is assigned to a training exercise in Bavaria. A place where landslides and falling off a mountain are the least of his worries.
