In Gun Metal Heart (Minotaur) by Dana Haynes, Daria Gibron, a freelance operative with a long and deadly history, has been slowly recovering from the injuries sustained from her last case. Hiding out in a town in rural Italy, she has been staying as far off the map as she can — until she's tracked down by an old colleague. Diego had been a bodyguard in Florence, protecting an engineer and her invention, when they were attacked by a highly trained paramilitary group. Diego alone escaped and the White Scorpions, a Serbian mercenary group known for their indiscriminate violence, are now after him. Well, after him and Daria, now that he's dragged her into the picture. With several highly trained teams out to get her, a partner withholding critical information, and a missing invention around which everything turns, Daria is in the worst danger of her life. And she couldn't be having more fun.
Synopses & Reviews
“THIS BOOK IS A BLAST." —MEG GARDINER
In Ice Cold Kill, Daria Gibron is a woman with a deadly past and an uncertain future. Living in exile in the United States after years working as a Shin-Bet agent, shes a thrill junkie who cant resist taking the occasional freelance job as an operative. Its a habit that has left a trail of corpses behind her — and high-powered enemies who have sworn revenge.
“Daria is destined to become a favorite in the growing arsenal of female thriller leads.” —Booklist (starred review)
En route to an impromptu meeting, Daria gets an anonymous tip-off that shes about to walk into an ambush. Unsure who is after her — or why — she soon learns that she's been set up. Someone has linked her to a much-sought-after terrorist, and now all the resources of the U.S. intelligence community are being marshaled against her. As she tries to escape the ever-tightening snare laid out for her, Daria must outrun, outthink, and outmaneuver some of the best intelligence agencies in a lethal, international game of cat and mouse… while the lives of millions hang in the balance.
“Dana Haynes is a gifted writer who grabs you… and doesn't let you go until the final page.” —Nelson DeMille
