Sinossi

A gripping, high-octane, Assassination Thriller from debut author Martin Molsted!

What do you get when you take one dose of high-level gangsters, one dose of corrupted politicians, add to the cocktail a missing ship and then blend it with an unstoppable Russian journalist, an awesome hacker and a former elite soldier who’s become an alcoholic, fed-up, office rat?

You get Chasing the Storm!

Great characters, Exotic locations, a dash of Mystery, a tad of Romance and a lot of Thrilling high-octane action!

While in Hamburg, lawyer and former elite soldier, Torgrim Rygg, witnesses the assassination attempt on Marko Marin, a Russian journalist investigating the disappearance of a ship ostensibly carrying timber bound for Algiers. He gets drawn into a world of conspiracies, cover-ups and the relentless search for a missing ship. Disenchanted with his mundane office-life he agrees to help Mr. Marin, and together with Marin’s girlfriend, Lena, and their hacker, Sasha, he sets out on a journey to discover the truth about the missing ship.

Their truth seeking kicks off a series of life-threatening events and a relentless race against time to foil whoever is behind the disappearance of the ship, The Alpensturm. Their revelation puts not only their own lives at risk but the safety of the whole world …

Praise for Chasing The Storm:

"A riveting conspiracy thriller!"

"This one is definitely recommended."

"I'd highly recommend this book to all the fans of the genre."
- Lakis Fourouklas @ Fiction & More

"I think this is the best eBook I've ever read! […] THE END!!!! Oh I could never have predicted something like that. Brilliant. Really!!! Excellent book! Really well written…""
-Niyati.

"Martin Mölsted’s CHASING THE STORM is a thriller that grabs you from the first sentence in the book. It is a formidable work of fiction full of rage, great humour and definitely packed with energy. The pace is murderous, and that over four continents."
-Akinyi Yimbo.


[…]I left characterisation ‘till last because it is one of the deepest I’ve read in the last couple of years. I’m talking about the layers upon layers of understanding that come from not missing one beat to add to the characters’ dimensions. In addition to the usual physical and emotional tiers, you get the ethnic diversity, and within it the class, origin, background, and all these elements are beautifully interwoven. […]Five shiny stars from me."
-Ella Medler.

Based on Real Events:
In 2009 the ship MV Arctic Sea was hijacked in the Baltic Sea. Following intense media scrutiny, Russian commandos seized the ship a month later. Though Russia still claims that the ship carried timber destined for Algeria, many observers assume that the actual cargo was military-related, and that the mission was thwarted by Israeli forces.

… But what did really happen?

Chasing The Storm is a thriller about the hijacking of a Russian ship in the Baltic, and the search by a Russian journalist and a Norwegian oilman for the truth. The events have been fictionalized but may be closer to what really happened in the Baltic than any speculative journalism.

With its timely subject matter and intricate storyline, Chasing The Storm is reminiscent of recent Scandinavian Crime Fiction and popular international conspiracy thrillers.

3.0 su 5 stelle Mediocre writing, but interesting plot 16 dicembre 2013
Di Vaughn Hopkins - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is an unusual book - the writing is too mediocre to ever feel involved in the story, but the plot is a good one. It reads like an old movie serial - one "peril of Pauline" after another. Soon you realize that nothing too bad is going to happen, but you don't feel involved enough to really care. However, the locales chosen for the story are interesting, so it is a fairly good travelog. I wonder if the problem is that the translation to English is flawed, or was the original really this poorly written.

5.0 su 5 stelle Real spycraft for the modern world. 21 luglio 2014
Di PamRL - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Martin Molsted has created, at the least, two very interesting characters in Chasing the Storm. When I finished reading the novel, one of the first thoughts I had was that I would love to read more stories that contained them as major characters. At least that way I would be able to travel all around Europe and Africa, enjoying the coffees, teas, and other cultural food specialities that spice up an especially exciting intrigue. One of my biggest appreciations is that all the efforts of these characters are grounded in current politics and issues, providing a combination of the old hands-on spy world with the new digital age in a plausible way.
Many unpredictable events make up the story. And normally that could create a weakness, a disadvantage. However, these thriller spy events are tied to characters that are surprisingly human--in several different languages, even. Their humanity, their personal purpose, and growing bond make all this eventfulness real, and likable. Rhygg and Marin are revealed through their personal resourcefulness--the unlikely combination of a prematurely retired special forces soldier of Norwegian origin, and a Russian investigative reporter. And they create the real spice of this story. A tasty dish indeed.

5.0 su 5 stelle Constant action in a plausible, "don't put it down" tale of international weapons smuggling and journalistic investigation 5 gennaio 2014
Di Allan M - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Way too many Kindle books are poorly written with no, or poor editing and constant flaws. Chasing the Storm is not one of those. I tend to be very critical when reading, noticing every misspelling and misuse of grammar and incorrect words. I found nothing to criticize. Martin Molsted as a debut novel has written a compelling, interesting and attention holding first story.

Two concurrent storylines tell the story, but a review by someone else indicating that they are confusing and jumping back and forth inn timelines is not accurate. The two storylines are absolutely relevant and in time with each other. Aplensturm, a Russian ship carrying a suspect cargo is hijacked with the crew. Some chapters tell the story of what is happening on the ship as the ship and crew are overcome, and they cruise for weeks without being found or rescued.

Torgrim Rygg, a former Norwegian FSK (special forces) member on business in Hamburg meets Marko Marin, a Russian journalist on a quest to investigate and expose corruption who is investigating the Alpensturm hijacking. Through a series of events, Rygg joins Marin, his girlfriend Lena, and Sasha a computer hacker in their attempts to expose the truth about the Alpensturm.

With constant action and twists, there is plenty to hold your attention and keep you reading. The plot is not simply a predictable storyline with clear "good guys vs. bad guys." Some bad things happen to the good guys, but they recover and continue until they have, and expose the truth. The only thing to criticize in the storyline, is that while everything is totally plausible, the good guys are captured and presumably lose everything they are carrying, yet they have no difficulty in getting their hands on money and continuing their adventures. Not a big deal, but on a few occasions it had me wondering if they had just escaped and had no wallets and credit cards, how did they manage to come up with wads of money again shortly after escape. Maybe their wallets had not been taken during the capture, or maybe they just had good connections every place they went! Still, that is so minor, and does not detract from the story that it was a momentary lapse in attention as I wondered ... aside form that the story kept me constantly engaged and swiping over to the next Kindle reader page.

While this is noted as the first in a series, the book stands alone as a good read. I thoroughly recommend it for anyone who likes action thriller books, James Bond-ish. but probably far more true to life without the glitz and glamor. There are a few places where there are brief sex scenes, and some cursing through the story, but not so much as to make the book an R rated read. I could have done without those, but they were easy enough to ignore.

3.0 su 5 stelle An interesting debut novel 21 marzo 2014
Di Book fanatic - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
An interesting theme of a business man going through a midlife crisis and ends up in international espionage.

Whilst the plot moved, I found many parts confusing and not terribly relevant. The book was well written but in some places,I found the story quite hard to believe and, with one exception, the characters were kept in the dark and had little idea as to why they were doing what they were. I was not sure who the "bad or good" guys were. Some scenes were overly detailed and somewhat boring and the plot moved fast in done places and terribly slowly in others.

Whilst a good debut novel, I would like to see the characters more developed, learn their history and feel as if they are working as a team rather than puppets. It would be most. Interesting to see what further installments bring forth.

5.0 su 5 stelle Rygg and Marin thriller 26 marzo 2014
Di Quentin R. Stewart, Jr. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A very good book teaming an ex-Special Forces soldier from Norway with an investigative reporter from Russia. Two unlikely heroes brought together by a shooting incident in Hamburg one evening. The Norwegian is stuck in a job that does not offer the excitement that he once felt when he was in the field, so after returning home and getting an offer from the reporter he is off to find a ship that has been pirated in the Baltic. What is aboard that ship that makes it valuable to anyone or any nation? The search is on and the crisscross Europe searching for the answer.

The book keeps the reader interested and guessing throughout. The story is well conceived and it is wrapped around incidents that could very well happen today. A very good first novel and I look forward to more Rygg and Marin novels.
