Keepers of the Gate (Ben Kamal and Danielle Barnea, #4)
by Jon Land

Land writes a darn good mystery/action/thriller. I jumped into this series with Book 3, "A Walk In the Darkness," so I'm still learning about the two lead characters. Lots of new backstory in this novel, which helps flesh out the main characters well.

Once again in Keepers of the Gate Danielle and Ben have to team up to fight those who oppose peace in the Middle East. Neither is really accepted in their perspective countries.... but especially, Danielle because she love Ben a Palestinian.

Danielle finds herself pregnant with Ben's baby but is going to raise it alone rather than have him be rejected by both the Palestinians and Israelis. Their adventure takes them to the U.S. where the life of Danielle and her son in in peril.
