Not your average teenage girl problems...

Gwendolyn has enough on her plate dealing with the snobs she goes to school with, the anniversary of her mother's (violent) death, and a Dad who works too hard. Then her dad goes "missing" while on assignment - and she learns his job includes a lot more than "diplomacy". Worse, his employers are hinting that he disappeared quite willingly. Unwilling to believe he'd just walk away and leave her, she is faced with a difficult choice: she can move to Texas and live a normal life with her maternal aunt - she\'s only seventeen, after all - or she can enter her father\'s world to try and find him, hopefully while he is still alive.

What follows is a crash course in the world of espionage, and a desperate search across the criminal underworld of Europe, hoping to find the traffickers who kidnapped her father. This story has plenty of action to satisfy fans of thrillers, but the characters are what really sold this to me. Even the bad guys aren't nameless thugs. And at the heart of it all is Gwendolyn, and a question she has to face, again and again: how far is she willing to go to save her father, and where will she draw the line? Because it's a cruel world, and there's only one way for her to succeed.
