A strange new city, a missing girl, and a race against time.
In Europe to help broker a peace deal between warring African nations, Secretary of State Jayne Whitticker is in the middle of delicate negotiations when her favourite grandchild disappears from Paris.
Special Agent Ingrid Skyberg is hauled out of her FBI training session at Scotland Yard to head the hunt for the 18-year-old girl, who the FBI believe is now in London. The problem is, Ingrid has only one lead, just a few hours to track her down and can’t call in the local cops for assistance for fear the story is leaked to the press.
Will she succeed in her unexpected mission? Or will her failure lead to the collapse of the crucial peace talks?
With so much resting on her decisions and subsequent actions, one thing’s for sure: Ingrid will give everything’s she’s got to find the girl and save the day.
I chose this book as I was looking for something quick and easy to read and this fit the bill perfectly. An added bonus was that it was also interesting with a whole lot packed into its limited pages.
It’s simply written and, being a novella, the author gets to the point almost straight away. The majority of the characters are engaging although the missing teenager did irritate me a little at times.
The characters aren’t too complex. In my opinion, this book sets introduces the characters just enough to hook you. In my opinion it makes you want to read more of the series.
Thanks for reading, until next time.
