THE MEDUSA GAME
When the top-secret, all-female special forces team the Medusas is assigned to protect a Middle Eastern skater at the next Olympics in Lake Placid, N.Y., Isabella Torres finds herself working with Delta Force commander Dex Thorpe. At first, Dex comes off as an arrogant chauvinist, but as soon as he lets go of his prejudice against women in special forces, the attraction between them flares and they end up working together to save the Olympics. In The Medusa Game (4.5), Cindy Dees' female characters are strong and admirable -- women any of us would love to be. The story is interesting and exciting from start to finish.
