Below Zero: An International FBI Thriller (Ingrid Skyberg Book 5) Kindle Edition
Unfortunately for Special Agent Ingrid Skyberg, everything is kicking off the day she arrives to complete a dangerous undercover assignment. Her mission is so secret, and so illegal, neither the FBI nor the US government know about it. Her instructions are simple: no ID, no credit cards, no trace. If Ingrid ends up in jail, or floating face down in the harbor, there can be no way of identifying her.
Set in the snowy landscapes of a Swedish winter, Below Zero finds the FBI’s most dogged agent on the wrong side of the law and on the run. Using all her knowledge and training to evade capture, Ingrid is forced to break the rules again and again just to stay alive.
Unlock the thrills and twists of this up-all-night crime thriller series. Below Zero is 5th Ingrid Skyberg thriller, but the novels can be read in any order.

Ingrid's commitment to completing the mission keep her going in spite of her suffering. Her compassion for others also keeps her from thinking only about herself and her own survival. She makes some silly mistakes, but her inner voice keeps telling her it won't make any difference. She will find a way to cope and come out ahead. That voice seems to be prophetic as she gets one lucky break after another. This unbelievability of her tremendous good fortune is the main reason I didn't give the book 5 stars. It is a gripping novel and each new situation makes the story a compelling one to read.
One interesting characteristic of the story is the periodic diversion to testimony for a committee who is reviewing after the fact the events that are unfolding in real time for Ingrid. It gives a hint as to what will be coming next and makes getting back to Ingrid's story more urgent, but also allays some fear that things might not turn out as the reader hopes. This is an interesting way of supporting the story and I found it a nice distraction from the tense moments of the main narrative. I'm sure Ingrid Skyberg fans will enjoy this book.
There are some spots I question, like how she just happened to go in a certain direction at random while escaping and yet find who she was looking for. What happened to the tracker?
Normally, I don't enjoy stories in Europe because of the dialect, but this was written for Americans, it seemed.
Extra credit for a good story by a female author and she didn't feel the need to add a sex scene for the romance. Believe me, there's no romance here.
Nobody gets shot by her, she uses tradecraft and nerves of steel.
Yes, I'll look for more.

Special Agent Ingrid Skyberg, had a very busy time, in the previous book called Shoot First. She certainly found out, one or two things about herself. Like shooting at moving targets and midwifery.
Then there is her friend Natasha McKittrick. How is her health? Is she still a Detective Inspector with the Metropolitan Police? Can Ingrid ever forgive herself for requesting Natasha to take a closer look at that pub in Pimlico.
Now, should she have done what she intended to do and resign? Is the fact that her ex fiancé Marshall Claybourne is now the new deputy chief. In overall control of FBI agents who are based in the US embassy in London. Is staying there just to annoy him any good for her?
Surely, a new start with Fortnum Security. Working alongside former SAS and MI6 operative Nick Angelis, would be better for all concerned?
Whatever she decides? Nick Angelis will call in that favour, for the help Fortnum Security did in clearing up the mess in that Sussex mansion.
I loved this book, and the way it's written with the insertion of excerpts of transcripts from "formal hearings" that took place following the events really brings them even more to life. I know fans of the series will love this book as much as I did, but new readers will probably like it as a standalone adventure too, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to them all!
