Coming in March, 2008 ~ Betrayed by Jeanette Windle

I love it when I find out one of my favourite authors is releasing a new book! I have been captivated by each one of Jeanette Windle's substantial thrillers, set in the jungles of South America, where Jeanette grew up as the daughter of missionaries then following in their footsteps herself.

While you are waiting be sure to read The DMZ, Crossfire and its sequel, Firestorm.

I can't wait to read Betrayed when it releases from Tyndale in March, 2008.

Check it out below:~

Summary

This action-packed international thriller brings readers to Guatemala, where anthropologist Vicki Andrews discovers that her sister has been murdered. Guatemalan authorities dismiss her death as another of the country’s frequent muggings or a kidnap-for-ransom, but Vicki refuses to accept their verdict. Vicki launches her own investigation and uncovers corruption buried so deep that crossing international lines may cost Vicki her life.

Back Cover Copy

Fires smolder endlessly below the dangerous surface of Guatemala City’s municipal dump. Deadlier fires seethe beneath the tenuous calm of a nation recovering from brutal civil war. Anthropologist Vicki Andrews is researching Guatemala’s “garbage people” when she stumbles across a human body. Curiosity turns to horror as she uncovers no stranger, but an American environmentalist—Vicki’s only sister, Holly. With authorities dismissing the death as another street crime, Vicki begins tracing Holly’s last steps, a pilgrimage leading from slum squalor to the breathtaking and endangered cloud forests of the Sierra de las Minas Biosphere. But every unraveled thread raises more questions. What betrayal connects Holly’s murder, the recent massacre of a Mayan village, and the long-ago deaths of Vicki’s own parents?

Nor is Vicki the only one demanding answers. Before her search reaches its startling end, the conflagration has spilled across international borders to threaten an American administration and the current war on terror. With no one turning out to be who they’d seemed, who can Vicki trust and who should she fear?

A politically relevant tale of international intrigue and God’s redemptive beauty and hope.

I can't believe I haven't read Jeannette (sp?) yet. I have Crossfire on my shelf waiting. Was even talking about it yesterday, believe it or not. But as you know, it's hard to pick which book to read next when you have so many! Now that I know they come highly recommended I better pick it up!
