After eight years of living in self-imposed exile in Vietnam, Eva is recruited once again by Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, MI6. She uses a diamond mine in Vietnam – and herself – as bait to entrap Robie Frazer, a ruthless international entrepreneur suspected of assisting China’s illegal trade in nuclear weapons. Camouflaged by wealth and respectability, Frazer is the drug lord whose narcotics nearly destroyed Eva as she infiltrated his vast Asian empire years before. Now she’s willing to pay any price to destroy him. Even if it means sleeping with the enemy…
She’s driven to ever greater risks as she walks the thin line between desire and deception, one step away from discovery, and certain death…
From the mines of Vietnam to the Vancouver Stock Exchange, Wilderness of Mirrors exposes the dangerous world where high finance collides with the intelligence services.

I love this author – she writes with great knowledge of the subject matter and writes very well. This book will absorb you from the beginning and you will find it very difficult to set it down. I have read almost all of her fiction books and can only hope that she is in the process of writing more.

I loved this book – well worth the money. Easy to read and lots of information, I learned a lot.

Linda has written four more novels for adults which have all been published internationally; Wilderness of Mirrors, Into the Fire, Something Wild and Final Settlement. She describes her books as rip-roaring adventures, set in the world of international finance, narco-trafficking and terrorism, where the heroine gets lots of action and drama as well as the man!

Linda lived in Peru for three years, and in the Middle East for eight years, during which time she was kidnapped by Iranian government forces and held hostage for two weeks in Iran. After UK government intervention, she was freed. She now lives deep in the English countryside.
