"Grabs you on page one and doesn't let you go until the final page!" —Nelson DeMille on Crashers   Daria Gibron is a woman with a deadly past and an uncertain future. A former Shin-Bet agent now in exile in the U.S. and under the protection of the F.B.I., she works primarily as an interpreter. But Daria is a thrill junkie who can't resist the occasional freelance job as an operative—a habit that has left her with a trail of corpses behind her, and a few still living, very dangerous, high-powered enemies who would stop at nothing to get revenge.

En route to an impromptu meeting with an old contact from her days in the Israeli Secret Service, Daria gets an unexpected and anonymous tipoff that she's about to walk into an ambush. Unsure who is after her, or why, she slips away from her followers and soon learns that she's been set up—and set up good. 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, someone else is using the operation against her as a distraction to hijack a very dangerous, highly guarded shipment. Now the only person who can keep this shipment from falling into terrorist hands is the one person they chose to set up as a diversion. Daria Gibron is many things—trigger-happy, resourceful, focused, and extremely dangerous —but the one thing she isn't is anybody's fool.  Ice Cold Kill is an espionage spy thriller from Dana Haynes.

Despite a ridiculous amount of malicious mischief and murder, "Ice Cold Kill" by Dana Haynes is a pretty darn good adventure/suspense novel.

Book Reporter

(Please note my use of the term “secondary” as opposed to “minor.”) Complex and dangerous, Daria is set up on one side and pursued on a couple of others, with agencies --- rogue and otherwise --- of no less than three different countries seeking to bring her head home on a pike.
