      Arctic Wings: A Story of Crime and Justice on the Northern Frontier
Spring has come to White Bear Landing and so has the law, in the firm hands of Royal Mounted policeman and pilot Bob Dixon Dixon s as gruff, tough and good looking as Russell Crowe, and in this outpost halfway between the arctic mines and civilization, he s known for taking the law to extremes.More than once Dixon has meted out his own brand of rough justice with hard fists and hot lead, but now the tables have turned The past has come back to haunt him, he s been set up as a murder suspect, and a rogue s gallery of enemies are lining up to settle old scores.Out on the icy tundra, on the edge of the world, revenge can be cold and brutal Dixon s only hope is to let the trust of a good friend and the love of a good woman lead the way to true justice and redemption on Arctic Wings.Hubbard never wrote a word, conceived a character, or described a setting without first finding out all he could about the people and places that drove his stories He wrote I began to search for research on the theory that if I could get a glimmering of anything lying beyond a certain horizon, I could go deep enough to find an excellent story I read exhaustively I wanted information and nothing else His exhaustive research and search for the excellent story comes through brilliantly inArctic Wings.

    The writing was not compelling, as I hoped Perhaps it wasexciting in the 1930s, when it was written I did not connect with it.I disliked the swearing, even though it might be considered average today.I read the paperback edition The ISBN is marked as CD audio book.
