Booklist‘s May 1, 2013, issue features a review of Mission, Peter Robertson’s sequel to Permafrost. Reviewer David Pitt writes: “Robertson returns to the life of Tom, the Scottish expat he introduced in his fine debut, Permafrost (2012). . . . The story opens on his forty-eighth birthday, just as Tom is watching an EMT pull the body of a homeless man out of Boulder Creek (the second body to be hauled from the creek in the last month). As happened in Permafrost, Tom has a premonition, a feeling that there is something more going on here than a couple of accidental deaths. . . . Tom . . . is still a fascinatingly enigmatic, multitextured series lead. . . . A successful follow-up to a strong opening act.”
