Kate Malick, a former Carmelite nun turned security professional to the stars, is dedicated to protecting her clients. Celebrities are her specialty, and right now teenage celebutante and slow-motion train wreck Chelsea Brewer is testing Kate’s devotion. A poster child for the pitfalls of childhood fame and fortune, Chelsea is careening past the boundaries of “poor choices” and into the deep waters of self-destruction.
On LA’s mean streets, young lives are often cut short, and Chelsea’s is no exception. A large wager has been placed on her imminent demise and she’s disappeared. Forced underground in a desperate attempt to find her client, Kate searches the City of Angels’ darkest, deadliest corners, uncovering a tangled conspiracy of revenge and betrayal. But time is running out, and as Kate stares down the face of evil, she must quickly solve the puzzle and rescue Chelsea before the young girl’s prayers for help become her last.

In addition to the usual taut suspense and fast-paced action, I loved the mystery of the main character's past. A former nun, now a security agent, Kate Malick is a superb characters with plenty of mysteries of her own. I LOVED this book!
The chase scene through the streets where Kate was helping Chelsea to escape - phenomenal!
I loved her voice, her interpretations of the words, and the way she changed for each character. What a dynamic range of voices!!! Well done!
I was addicted to it!
I'm so glad that Michael Prescott's books are now on Audible. I read them also as eBooks but this way I can get more books into my head when I'm walking and driving. I'm buying them all!
Sometimes I really liked this book and at other times I didn't like it. at times it seemed all over the place and the things that happened aren't likely to happen in a crime novel in one night. Hard to explain, but overall a decent book.
