REVENGE CAN BE ECSTASY. Irina Ismaylova is a sexual assassin, luring men and women to her bed...and their death. From St. Petersburg to Paris, she kills not for money or for pleasure, but under orders from the Russian mafioso who holds her in thrall. Desperate to buy back what is left of her shattered life, Irina must carry out one last mission.... Cate Cuevas is a special agent in Houston's FBI office. Devastated by her husband's death--and his betrayal--she has plunged into the most dangerous assignment of her career. But to succeed, she must form a secret and profoundly intimate alliance with the enemy: Irina Ismaylova. Two women. One a cop. The other a killer. For these two there is no right, no wrong, no rules. Only the truth...and terror.

About the author (1996)

David Lindsey is a highly-acclaimed, best-selling author of suspense fiction. His chilling page-turners are read around the world. Whether writing about serial killers or undercover agents, gutsy, gory thrillers are his trademark. "A Cold Mind" (1983) introduced Houston police detective Stuart Haydon and a serial killer using the rabies virus as a murder weapon. Other popular books featuring Haydon include "Heat From Another Sun" (1984) and "Spiral" (1986). Female detective Carmen Palma is the protagonist of "Mercy" (1990). This book is a tale told with such horror that it has been compared to "Silence Of The Lambs". Some of Lindsey's works have been made into films, most notably "Requiem for a Glass Heart" (1996) starring Demi Moore. Lindsey was born November 6, 1944 in Kingsville, Texas and graduated from the University of North Texas with a B.A. in English literature. He has worked as a freelance editor and is the founder of Heidelberg Publishers.
