Daria Gibron, star of CRASHERS, BREAKING POINT and ICE COLD KILL, is back.

Daria, a freelance operative with a long and deadly history, has been hiding out in rural Italy, avoiding the enemies she’s made in the CIA, the Israeli government and Western law enforcement agencies. An old colleague tracks her down and seeks her help protecting an aerospace engineer from the White Scorpions, a Serbian mercenary group.

GUN METALMeanwhile, a small group of disgraced CIA agents have been waiting for their chance to exact revenge on the person they blame for their discharge — Daria Gibron.

Soon Daria is in the thick of both fights, squaring off against enemies from all sides and facing the threat of stolen military technology that can lay waste to entire cities.

The chase takes her from Italy to the former Yugoslavia. With the help of John Broom, a congressional aide, Daria has to thwart her old foes, take on new ones, and face perhaps her greatest challenge yet: Veronica, a mercenary with whom she is so evenly matched, they might as well be opposite sides of the same coin.

With the odds against her, Daria is in the worst danger of her life. And she couldn’t be having more fun.

Haynes knows how to deliver high-octane action scenes that will make readers shudder with delight and terror. He also writes strong female characters, and there are few stronger than freelance operative Daria Gibron. Men who know her are scared to be in the same room with her and women try to emulate her, minus the violence and gunplay. Fans of the Brad Thor and Robert Ludlum vein have a new author to enjoy.

Picnic HouseDaria Gibron is trying to leave the spy game and has moved to Italy to enjoy life. When a former colleague tracks her down and asks for her help to protect a scientist, she can’t resist jumping back into action. Things immediately go wrong when she learns that a Serbian mercenary group has their sights set on the asset. They are working with a woman who had similar training to Daria and has a vendetta against her. There are CIA operatives seeking revenge against Daria, and her former boss appears to have secrets of his own. Daria will have to rely on herself to save the day. (MINOTAUR, Aug., 320 pp, $25.99)
