Former CIA operative
Liz Sansborough is now a college professor in Santa Barbara, California. Her life undergoes
an abrupt change when she finds out that her cousin Sarah has been kidnapped
in Paris, and the kidnappers are demand-ing the long-lost files of Liz's deceased father--a high-level Cold War assassin known as the Carnivore--in exchange
for Sarah's safe return.

Under the apparent guidance of the CIA, Liz travels to Europe to search for the files, which she's not even sure exist. Liz joins an old family friend, British agent Simon Childs, and together they
set forth through England and France, attempting to elude pursuers.

High-octane, nonstop action permeates the pages of this finely tuned espionage thriller. Don't miss this masterfully crafted novel. (Jul., 500 pp., $6.99)
