Book Review: The DMZ

DMZ, The: A Novel

(Back Cover)
"Those who are not willing to bleed and die for what they hold dear will always be held hostage by those who are."

More than a decade after the end of the cold war has chilled the Marxist rebel movements around the world,  one hot spot remains-Colombia.

The inexplicable loss of three major U.S. assets draws the attention of the world to the Colombian demilitarized zone.  Are the local Colombian rebels responsible?  Or is a deadly Middle Eastern secret cloaked by the jumble canopy of the DMZ?

Among the contingent of politicians and media headed for the DMZ seeking answers is reporter Julie Baker, whose parents had been missionaries in Colombia.  Old hurts and terrors surge as she revisits the place of her birth-and her parents' deaths.  When Julie's own abduction by guerillas triggers a time bomb that has been ticking under the feet of the U.S. for a decade, she is left with more questions than answers.

ith the fate of two countries resting in her hands, Julie must put aside her own terror to face just what God's call to sacrifice will mean for her past and her increasingly uncertain future.

This book will keep you on your toes and looking behind your back just to be sure you're not being hunted along with the characters in the book!  I enjoyed this book, it is fast paced and full of adventure as your race through the jungles of Colombia.  If you like adventure, intrigue and a bit of romance thrown into the mix then this is the book for you!

While reading this book you can imagine the vast amount of research done by author Jeanette Windle and mentioned on the back cover is the fact that her "writing is so realistic and carefully researched that government agencies have questioned her to determine if she has received classified information."

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from Litfuse Publishing!
