Jamie Sinclair’s father has never asked her for a favor in her life. The former two-star general turned senator is more in the habit of giving his only child orders. So when he requests Jamie’s expertise as a security specialist, she can’t refuse—even though it means slamming the brakes on her burgeoning relationship with military police officer Adam Barrett. Just like that, Jamie hops aboard a flight to London with a U.S. State Department courier carrying a diplomatic pouch in an iron grip.
Jamie doesn’t have to wait long to put her unique skills to good use. When she and the courier are jumped by goons outside the Heathrow terminal, Jamie fights them off—but the incident puts her on high alert. Someone’s willing to kill for the contents of the bag. Then a would-be assassin opens fire in crowded Covent Garden, and Jamie is stunned to spot a familiar face: Adam Barrett, who saves her life with a single shot and calmly slips away. Jamie’s head—and her heart—tell her that something is very wrong. But she’s come way too far to turn back now. (Summary and book cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review courtesy of TLC Book Tours.
I definitely think that Christoff has improved on “The Kill Shot” with this sequel. (Note: It can be read as a stand-alone, however some background are explained in “The Kill List”). Jamie is once again stuck between a rock and a hard place and is forced to help out someone, in this case her dad, who she perhaps would rather not.
This book was jam-packed with action and twist and turns I wasn’t expecting. Even the ending when some of the big reveals had been shown there were a few things that caught me by surprise. Of course there were some moments of “Why aren’t you suspicious of that as a PI?!?!”, but Jamie was more emotionally invested in this one making it complicated. I read the book in two sittings and certainly will be interested in reading more of the series.
