In Europe to help broker a peace deal, Secretary of State Jayne Whitticker is in the middle of delicate negotiations when her wayward granddaughter goes missing in London.
Special Agent Ingrid Skyberg is hauled out of her FBI training session at Scotland Yard to lead the hunt for the 18-year-old. The problem is, Ingrid has only one lead, just a few hours and can’t call in the local cops for back-up.
Will Ingrid find the girl in time? Or will her failure lead to the collapse of crucial peace talks?
This is the introductory story for a series of books featuring FBI Agent Ingrid Skyberg, I have actually read the next one in the series and when I read it I did wonder how and why she ended up working at the American Embassy in London and this explains it all.
The main characters are well written and believable and the story is a good read, although I did want to slap the spoiled girl who gives the book it’s title, but all the characters do come alive, and I can picture Agent Skyberg and her colleague in my head, which is always a goof indication of the quality of the writing. I will be looking out for other titles in the series as I am interested in what Skyberg will get up to next, some how I cannot see her settling down and giving up her career, which is going to cause some issues in future books, I feel.
If you want a nice easy read, then this is for you, I read this in one go, and gave it 4 out of 5* on Gooodreads
