Product description

Review

A 2018 Edgar Award finalist

"Liam Neeson's 2008 film Taken concerned a spy who engages in mass mayhem while attempting to recover his kidnapped daughter. Bergstrom reverses this plot in his violent, well-crafted first novel. Seventeen-year-old gymnast Gwendolyn Bloom doesn't learn that her father is a genuine spy--and not merely an overworked State Department employee--until after he is kidnapped by international gangsters, and the CIA makes little attempt to recover him... A grim, fast- paced tale."--Publishers Weekly

"[T]his debut novel is relentlessly paced, full of global sets, slick action...with a grim, ass-kicking antihero."-- Booklist

Review

'A well-crafted first novel ... Bergstrom manages Gwen's transformation from high school student to assassin believably enough, and he doesn't avoid the toll Gwen's actions take on her. Not for the weak of heart, this is a grim, fast-paced tale that stands knee-deep in dead bodies.' (Publisher's Weekly)
