Praise for Burning Distance

"Running the gamut of emotions from fear to love, this plot surges along as unpredictable as a riptide. Romance and thriller readers will both find plenty of mischief and mayhem." --Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author

"Burning Distance is a double helix of a book, carefully plotted and beautifully told. It's a spy story interwoven with a love story, and the strands fit together in a way that moves the reader effortlessly from chapter to chapter . . . A subtle and satisfying novel." --David Ignatius, New York Times best-selling author

"I entered the world of Burning Distance and I didn't want to leave. The narrative voice unfolds the story both poetically and realistically." --Azar Nafisi, New York Times best-selling author

"Burning Distance opens with a mystery, glides into a love story, and unfolds into a political thriller . . . Readers will be up way past their bedtimes eagerly turning pages to discover what happens to Lizzy and Adil. A great read!" --Susan Isaacs, New York Times best-selling author

"Burning Distance is a mystery, a complicated, story-driven drama of lives lived amidst the high risk of life and death in international arms trading . . . This is a real page turner which also informs, excites, and moves us." --Susan Richards Shreve, author of More News Tomorrow

"I was immediately engrossed in the lives of Joanne Leedom-Ackerman's characters and their fascinating and compelling stories. Joanne has the ability to take the big issues of contemporary life and render them in the contexts of love, conscience, and the consequence of choice." --Eric Lax, author of Start to Finish
