Publisher's Summary

A groundbreaking YA thriller following a diplomat's daughter from New York to Europe's criminal underworld in search of her kidnapped father.
'I'm every bit the devil you imagined.'
When her diplomat father is kidnapped and the US government refuses to help, 17-year-old Gwendolyn Bloom sets off across the criminal underbelly of Europe to rescue him. As she journeys from the slums of Paris to the nightclubs of Berlin to the violent heart of the most feared criminal family in Prague, Gwendolyn discovers that to survive in this new world she must become every bit as cruel as the men she's hunting.


What the Critics Say

"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." (Publishers Weekly)
