Leine and April are the Yin and all of the bad are the Yang.
D. V. Berkom has built a story that only the badass mother and daughter team could have attempted.
The feelings of the heat of the jungle and action can be felt all the way through this aggressive novel, fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat gritty novel.
Who are the good and who are the bad? Nobody knows? Leine and April are on her own and nobody too call for help.
It took me a day and a bit to read this book . I couldn’t put it down as there was too much happening.
It’s a must read.

This thriller series are always fast moving and this time the heroine is on track.
If you pick this book up, have a free evening because you won’t put it down until you finish
The writing and descriptions are so engrossing that at times I was swatting imaginary mosquitos, wiping my brow, listening for the roar of a Jaguar- the neighbor’s dog scared the hell out of me - and checking for poisonous frogs and spiders.
Leine’s daughter - April - joins her in this mission to locate and rescue Leine’s boss
Lou’s niece - Nancy - who has been kidnapped by drug runners and worse from her father’s camp where they are in search of a lost city of a lost civilization.
Dr. Martin Stokes Is in search of the city, but with mixed emotions. The last thing he wants is to see is his find exploited by those seeking gold or overrun by tourists.
But, he must aid the rescue of his daughter.
We also have a wealthy businessman in search of a cure for his disability.

This book is worthy of every second you spend on it and more.
Shadow of the Jaguar, has everything you would expect from the author D.V. Berkom. I will say this one is different from other Leine Basso books.
To explain what I mean, I'll use two NHL players. Normally this series, is like Alex Ovechkin where he firing a slap shot between 95 to 100 MPH, takes off from page one but with the latest it's more like Patrick Kane getting nifty with the puck, stick handling it to fake or freeze the goalie and it's not till Leine enters in the story that it really takes off.
It's still a good read, has an intertwining storyline with multi-layers of deceit, trickery, predictable and Leine's still is badass. I really like the Leine Basso character, she's super human, tough as nails, has no fear, can handle any situation, lethal with any gun and protector of the weak, those that can't defend themselves.
With "Shadow of the Jaguar", Leine takes on a different role by helping her boss Lou, by rescuing his brother Martin and daughter Nancy in the amazon jungle in Peru and she's team with her daughter April on the mission. Don't want to give anything away, but when Leine wounded, that probably the only scene that seemed fake to me, she already doesn't trust him, because as a former assassin, she'd sense it and she would attack before he had the chance to do anything.
I would have add this element to the story. When she doesn't hear back from Lou. Why not have her reach out to an old friend, ex-poacher Derek van der Haar, whom we met in "Dakota Burn" and they made an awesome team. Plus at first with the Derek character mentioned, that who I thought of as I was reading.
Definitely if you haven't yet, highly recommend that you give author D.V. Berkom a try and you won't be disappointed.
