Reviews for Iron Dove
"Judith Leon has scored a hit with IRON DOVE. The tale is so gripping it will keep you on the edge of your seat. Nova is a strong woman who does what's right—even if she doesn't want to. Joe is the hero we could all fall in love with." -Alexandra Kay, RT Book Club
"Hang on tight, because IRON DOVE is non-stop action from page one. For Nova Blair, moving from tree to tree on rope bridges suspended one hundred and fifty feet high in the Costa Rican jungle canopy is just another day in her life as a high adventure travel guide. But when CIA agent Joe Cardone arrives in Costa Rica asking for her help one last time, Nova knows she has no choice. Servizio per le Informazioni e la Securezza Militaire (SISMI), the Italian intelligence agency, has learned that terrorists have made a deal to obtain a strain of the Ebola virus—a strain that has been mutated so that a person would be able to carry it without showing symptoms for a while, as well as being an air-borne virus (not needing physical contact to spread it)—and the implications are terrifying. It will be up to Nova and Joe to find the people in possession of the virus before it is released, putting the Italian public—and the world—at risk. Nova and Joe have worked together before, as readers of CODE NAME: DOVE may remember, and along with a history, the two share an unexplored attraction. From the steamy Costa Rican jungle to Italy's beautiful Amalfi coast, they will have a chance to get to know each other while searching for the terrorists. With its interesting characters and a riveting plot sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats, IRON DOVE is not to be missed." - Jennifer Bishop, Romance Reviews Today
