Book Review: Jungle Fire by Dana Mentink

A few weeks ago I received a new book to review, 
I was so excited because Dana is one of my favorite authors!
I love how she writes great suspense 
without throwing in unnecessary bad language and sex.

The deadliest animal in the jungle is the two legged kind.

Nina Truman is a missionary nurse, serving in a tiny Guatemalan town 
not far from the Mexican border.  
It's a fulfilling life, tending to the village poor, 
a way to serve in the country from which she was adopted. 
The day she leaves on furlough, is the day her life falls apart. 
Her bus is ambushed and she must flee from forces who inexplicably wish her dead.
 Trapped between a ruthless drug lord and his assassins, a corrupt police chief, 
and colleagues with ulterior motives, 
her friends may prove just as deadly as her enemies 
as she uncovers a plot tangled deep in the roots of her own past.
Nina's only hope of survival lies in the hands of Shaw Wilder, 
a man who despises missionaries and the God they serve.  
His skill is in handling a landmine detection dog, 
not helping a woman he blames for the death of his sister. 
When the lethal drug kingpin El Escorpion seeks to capture Nina, 
and the local police are no help, Shaw has to choose: 
flee into the Guatemalan jungle with a naive woman who has vowed never to take a life 
or follow his own spiritual demons and walk away. 
His choice may leave them both imprisoned in a jungle from which neither will escape.

From the first few pages, I was hooked on this book!
Dana kept me guessing til the very end, not really knowing who the real enemy was.
The twists and turns kept on coming and I enjoyed every minute!
You will not be disappointed by Dana's latest work;
I can't wait to read the next one!
