A story of lies, secrets, and deadly mind games.
Brilliant American psychology student Madison Faber is in police custody - a potential murder suspect. Two hours ago, she found her roommate lying in a pool of blood.
Special Agent Ingrid Skyberg is assigned to investigate the case on behalf of the US embassy. Tasked with supporting a terrified Madison Faber and uncovering the truth behind her friend's death, Ingrid discovers a sinister extremist group operating out of Faber's London college.
Up against the obstructive attitude of the Metropolitan Police and defying the wishes of the embassy, Ingrid must navigate through a minefield of fear and mistrust to discover the killer's true identity. But in order to ensure justice is served, she is forced to operate so far beyond the law that she may never get back again.

I didn't read Book 1, so I am glad that Book 2 stood alone and didn't leave any questions on the characters. I definitely want to read Book 3 and will probably go back and read Book 1. I like the character of Ingrid Skyberg and the author does a good job of keeping her a believable character. Love Victoria Grove's voice!! She is easy to listen to and she does a great job of consistancy in her character voices. I definitely recommend this book and I will be looking for more with this author AND narrator.
Because tales should be told.
I loved the characters. The main character of course, but every character in this book is unforgettable. From Angela Tate--the obnoxious reporter who drinks too much, to Mohammed the Medic--a friendly guy with a sense of humor, each character has their own personality. Fascinating stuff.
Yes, the plot twists and turns were skillfully done. It is a suspenseful book, and I didn't see many of the story developments coming.
The accents. Her accents are amazing. She effortlessly switches between several British and American accents. She maintains a different voice for every character. She makes the well written characters come alive.
You would want to listen to it all, but it is too long to actually do it. It took me about a week, but I couldn't wait to get back to the story.
This is a great book. It is also relatively clean. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
I love books...I love storytelling. Audiobooks allow me to enjoy a great story while still being able to do my daily routine. Thanks Audible
Narrator Victoria Grove was wonderful! I enjoyed all the characters. I felt she made the text come to life.
So many great parts. I really enjoy the author's ability to bring in so many emotions. It was truly a grand adventure. Super storytelling.
Again, there was more than one. That's a great sign of a great story. I will definitely be on the lookout for more Agent Skyberg adventures as well as other stories narrated by Ms. Grove

"Gripping but too many loose ends"
The story was well told and the characters well drawn. However there were too many unanswered questions when stumps were drawn. Simply not cricket.
This was an interesting book. The characters were realistic with a very likeable main character in FBI agent Ingrid Skyberg. It's nice to take the agent out of her home country and have a different setting in London.
It's similar to the murder mystery thriller genres using FBI or Police detectives to solve crimes. There was more action than you sometimes get but a good mix of mystery and action.
I liked how the ending concluded swiftly without dragging things out. Action/Adventure/Thrillers have a tendency to draw things out in the last scenes but this just got on with it.
I enjoyed listening to the book.
