Publisher's Summary

Clever, cunning and highly skilled - there's only one Bianca St. Ives and don't you dare forget it

Bianca St. Ives was recently put through the wringer, but she came out the same way she always does - the way her father trained her to - hungry for a fight. Still navigating the fallout from a shocking revelation that's left a network of assassins' crosshairs trained on her, Bianca's ready to take fate into her own hands. It's kill or be killed, and she's got her finger flush against the trigger.

But as Bianca races to outmaneuver her tireless pursuers, her father loops her in on a job that might just do the trick: recover King Priam's Treasure, a collection of heavily guarded, priceless artifacts stolen by the Russians during World War II, and return it to Germany. Impossible? Maybe for some, but a high-risk heist is all in a day's work for Bianca St. Ives, especially when there's intel on the line - intel that could finally bring down the shadowy forces seeking to bury Bianca for good. Faced with threats that circle closer with every move she makes, she knows the stakes have never been higher, but when you're already living on borrowed time, you have to hustle if you want to live to see tomorrow.

I HATE Cliffhangers

This is a really good story but I wish I had waited until the last book (I hope, enough is enough) was available. Now we have to wait until next year and, frankly, it is too long - and pretty arrogant of the author to stick it to her audience that way. I cry foul.

Disappointing Ending!

The story line was very good; however, to get 4 stars, it would have had to have a very different ending!

Karen Robard Winner

Rivoting suspense, pulse pounding action, likable characters and colorful settings are all included and repeated throughout this excellent story! Bianca is a beautiful, caring, clever woman whom you want to succeed. The romance is not the main focus, but teases with delicious nibbles. Thank you Ms. Robards!!

Really enjoying this Series!!!

I'm hooked so far. I love how we're learning Bianca little by little and her development as a character. KR paints a really detailed environment and scene for visualization which JW delivers so brilliantly!!

I'll be honest, I don't think I'd be as enraptured in the book if I read this versus listening, and its all thanks to JW's absolutely amazing narration. The Best of the best performer right here. KR is extremely lucky to have a top notch narrator who can bring out exactly what KR was trying to portray in her scenes.

Onto Book #3!!

Good book two.

There were some great twist. I really hope there is another book where Bianca finds true love. Her loneliness is palpable. Nice plot. Great to see a strong woman

Looking forward to the conclusion...

Good second story...a sort of female Orphan X, love it and can't wait for the conclusion but would not mind seeing more of her story!

EXCELLENT AUTHOR! EXCEPTIONAL STORY!!!

This is the second book in this series and I've completed it and already into the 3rd and final book. Karen Robards is a new author in my long list of favorites but I can truthfully say that she doesn't disappoint. I hope by the time I get to the end of "The Fifth Doctrine" that I find that there's hope for a future continuation of the series. I have grown to love and hate the characters throughout the story.

Julia Whelan?!?!!! I know I've listened to her before but gezzzz...what a talent she is. I absolutely love her extensive range in her library of voices. However, she could work on her "southern" accent a little. Surely we don't sound THAT bad. ;)

I highly recommend this series. But it's one of those that you MUST read/listen to in order. Otherwise you won't know how some of the characters fit within the plot. So glad I found this author.
