Publisher's Summary

With her back against the wall, everything’s on the line for Bianca St. Ives. She’s either going to save the world - or die trying.

It took one hell of an effort for the authorities to finally get the jump on master manipulator Bianca St. Ives, but now that they have, it’s far from the capture she expected. Instead of taking her in, there’s an offer on the table, a one-shot deal that would allow Bianca to walk away scot-free as if they’d never found her. And all she has to do is run one last mission - the kind she might never return from. But if Bianca wants to go back to her normal life in Savannah, it’s not like she has a choice.

An intelligence operation is already under way in North Korea, one that’s poised to end the country’s existing tyrannical regime for good. But first, the US need one of their own to go undercover as the female hacker who recently stole top secret intel from NORAD. Enter Bianca. After everything she’s seen, Bianca knows feeding fake information directly into the belly of the beast is about as dangerous as it gets. It could mean torture or endless imprisonment - assuming she survives. But it might also ignite the kind of chaos that forces a revolution. It might just change the world. Besides, if Bianca has to go down, she’s gonna go down swinging…

Loved this series

This is some of the Robards’ best writing - I thoroughly enjoyed the series and hated for it to end. Well-written, entertaining and humorous; not only wasn’t there a serial killer, but the female protagonist was realistic and believable in a strong, interesting character.

Awesome Series.

I was so ticked off by the second installment but only because I couldn’t stand the pressure of not knowing what would happen and because they t made me cry for Bianca. This was a very satisfying conclusion to this first part of what may be a longer series!

I don't like cliffhangers.

Ms. Robards is a master story teller. She always starts her books with an opening scene that is riveting and then I sit forward and enjoy the wild ride. Her characters are well developed and believable and she allows me to get into their heads. But, I don't like cliffhangers. Her last three books have been ... to be continued. The story line is fascinating and she ties up all the loose ends but that might happen in book # 3 . Having said all that, Ms. Robards please keep writing.

WOW! WOW!! JUST WOW!!!!!

I can't remember when I've enjoyed a series as much as this one. I didn't think it could get any better than the second book in this series, but I was wrong. They just get better and BETTER!!! I'm so in hopes that there will be another release in the near future. This just can't end. And kudos to Julia Whelan for making it impossible to hit the pause button. She has moved to my favorite narrator list.

Don't miss this series! It's truly extraordinary!

I have been waiting for this book impatiently after reading the first two . It was well worth it. I liked the excitement and suspense and the way she blended current events into the storyline. Excellent.
