Ice Cold Kill

Ice Cold Kill by Dana Haynes is his first book about Daria Gibron who was introduced in Breaking Point, part of his series featuring a NTSB crash investigation team. Gibron is ex-Shim Bet (Israeli Security Force) and has worked with the FBI and DEA since moving to the United States.

Daria Gibron has set herself up as a translator. She speaks more languages than most and it gives her cover for some more covert jobs. After an altercation in Los Angeles she decides to take a relaxing job in Costa Rica. But her afternoons of swimming and laying in the sun are cut short by a message on her private website. And old friend and colleague is asking for a meeting in New York, and says it is a matter of life and death.

All US intelligence agencies get a warning that there is about to be an attempt on the life of the President. And the suspects are meeting in New York. One is a Syrian assassin and spy, Khalid Belhadj. And the other is Daria Gibron.

Now every law enforcement group in the country will be on the look out for Gibron. While she has no idea what she is about to walk into, she should not be underestimated. She has the training and survival skills to face anything.

Haynes can write suspense with the best. His book will grab you and not let go. And Gibron is a great character. Though it is not necessary to read the Crashers book first, there is some back-story in them. Daria Gibron is a great read alike for Jack Reacher fans.
