"While the romance and redemption in Jungle Fire is poignant, this is an incredible suspense. Dana Mentink has a new fan, and I have a new favorite! ...This story is a work of art with subplots and players weaving in and out in perfect time. Surprising secrets and shocking revelations kept my attention until I reached the final page."

From the Back Cover
Twists. Turns. And a family secret you never saw coming . . .
Nina Truman heads to the bus for a much-deserved furlough from her nursing duties. On the side of the road, a uniformed soldier stands idly, casually holding his gun—of little concern to her; soldiers are not uncommon south of the Mexican border. But he suddenly switches off the safety and opens fire, sending the occupants into chaos. Out of the forest storms Shaw Wilder and his bomb-sniffing dog, Axel. An improbable hero, who thinks being a missionary is like “shoveling sand uphill, useless,” also blames Nina for his sister’s death.
Join Nina and Shaw on an expedition where every turn can mean death and discovering the truth may make life even worse. A page-turner right to the very end.
