"Ice Cold Kill" (Minotaur), by Dana Haynes

Dana Haynes departs from his previous thrillers involving the aeronautics industry and takes on the alphabet agencies in "Ice Cold Kill," a surprising and intriguing page turner.

Daria Gibron, a minor character in both "Crashers" and "Breaking Point," takes center stage in this new novel. The former Shin-Bet agent now works as an interpreter, but when her old handler arranges to meet her at Grand Central Station in Manhattan, she drops everything to see him.

When she lands in New York, a coded message warns her of a trap. It turns out that her former handler has been murdered, and she's been linked to a much sought-after terrorist. She cleverly manipulates the situation to her advantage and puts her pursuers on the defensive.

Knowing that she's been burned, Gibron must use all her resources without help from her former allies. Shockingly, her best bet lies in teaming up with the terrorist to stop the real enemy. Together they learn the target on their backs is a distraction from the real operation that involves a deadly virus that's been genetically modified to kill select individuals.

Can they stop the plot in time?

The bullets fly and the action never stops in "Ice Cold Kill," Haynes' best book yet.
