RIBBON OF DARKNESS by JULIE COULTER BELLON

A split-second decision could change the world’s darkest hour to one of triumph--but who is willing to pay the price? Kennedy Campbell has been running away for a long time--using her position as an international journalist to escape the ghosts of her family's past. She finds some solace working in an Afghan refugee camp, until the Taliban attacks them and Kennedy is forced to flee. She is pulled into a terrorist's realm of darkness as she fights to save those around her, but will it come at the expense of her own life? Ethan Barak leads a double life, helping MI-6 bring down arms dealers all over the world until his father is murdered by an old associate. Ethan makes his next mission a personal vendetta by tracking down the killer to Indonesia. While there, he finds himself in a position to either avenge his father or stop a terrorist attack on the Malacca Strait that will jeopardize innocent lives across the world. Can he look past his father's murder to save others? The line between justice and mercy is blurred with each passing second, and international intrigue becomes intensely personal as the age-old struggle for redemption is brought close to home.
Ribbon of Darkness by Julie Coulter Bellon is a fast moving international thriller involving terrorists, pirates, bombs and a promise of romance. 
The action never stops, jumping from one crisis to the next smoothly. I loved that Kennedy was a strong independent woman, and didn't cower in a corner waiting for Ethan to protect her.
Once I started reading I didn't want to put Ribbon of Darkness down. 
There were some editing errors in the beginning that were a little distracting, but the story and the action helped overcome those.
I would recommend this to anyone, LDS and Non LDS who like adventure  and action.
Ribbon of Darkness by Julie Coulter Bellon is available for Kindle and Nook or on www.amazon.com in book form. Or check out inter library loan.

I received a review copy of Ribbon of Darkness from Julie Coulter Bellon, but my opinion was not influenced in any way by that.
