Yukon Audit by Ken Baird is an excellent story to read. Here, there is action, adventure, and romance all rolled into one entertaining tale. Brody is a car mechanic…and soon he is plunged into an adventure of a lifetime. Little does he know that one woman’s job request will send him straight into danger. Plus, the woman happens to be very attractive. There is only so much that a man can through…will Brody survive the journey all in one piece?
Ken Baird lured readers in by the wilderness of the Yukon and the danger it presents. There is a beauty to behold about the place. I have never been but once, I have read this book, I felt like I was there. The characters were enticing. The woman is confident and bold. Brody is courageous and a little less confident than the attractive beauty beside him.Yukon Audit was told in a way that was played realistically. I could actually see all of these scenes coming alive. They could actually happen. Crime is everywhere. Ken Baird writes it in a way that brought out excitement. Suspense and intrigue were heavily upon every page. I didn’t know what to expect. Truly a page turning thriller that will hold all to its plot. Fast-paced and masterfully written. Overall, I highly recommend this novel to readers worldwide.
