Unfinished Business: Pursuit of an Antarctic Killer Book Review

Unfinished Business: Pursuit of an Antarctic Killer Book Review

Unfinished Business: Pursuit of an Antarctic Killer Book Review

Some people have all the fun during their lives -- well, maybe not fun exactly, but adventure and excitement! Theodore Jerome Cohen's fictional account of his nonfiction memoir of his work in Antarctica is certainly engaging!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, how some pillars of the community are so deceptive! Two of Captain Munoz's murder victims are even reduced in rank, including their death and survivor benefits as he escapes conviction for this and other crimes. No new evidence surfaces during book 2 of this trilogy that begins with Frozen in Time, but much is explained and the reader now knows the facts. If only Valderas can find some evidence! At least he and Del Rio have figured out the truth but only have circumstantial evidence so far.

And besides all the intrigue and plot twists and turns, the penguins shooting up in the air are not your everyday occurrence here in land-locked Minnesota.

Entertaining and interesting read. Part tells the information, and part tells about the hearings and how they fail to catch Munoz. I can't wait to read Book 3.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Unfinished Business is just that as Book 2 of the trilogy of Antarctic thrillers, as a work of fiction based on real events that took place between 1960 and 1965. This book tells in detail how Munoz masterminded a sudden opportunity for a 1960 bank robbery in the millions as well as other thefts, has eluded the police and Naval investigations and hearings to escape undetected. In fact, he testified at some of the hearings! He is also a murderer and although some people know he is guilty, there is only circumstantial evidence and no hard evidence. He is living well at the end of the book and has earned a prestigious award and a promotion to an international position.

Events occur like a donkey cart stops traffic when Munoz needs to make quick time as part of his plan, but he manages to escape without a problem. He leaves behind coins with messages indicating he has outsmarted the investigators. Valderas "the bloodhound" is someone who knows him well, yet cannot find a shred of evidence to convict him. Time seems to pass slowly as Valderas thinks over the evidence on a daily basis (for years).

This book provides insight, facts, and background information so hopefully one day Munoz will hopefully make a mistake somewhere or events will catch up with him. I am hoping something along those lines happens in Book 3 (End Game) which I am eager to begin reading right now. In fact, I have started the last book in this trilogy.
