Pia Sabel plays to win.

Until a few weeks ago, she was an international soccer star. But now she’s taken the helm of her billionaire father’s private security company, and she’s playing against a whole new set of opponents – the kind who shoot to kill.

On her first day on the job, Pia’s client is assassinated in front of her. There’s no time for training, so Pia must trust her instincts and athletic skills to unravel the complicated maze of money laundering and piracy that will take her from Swiss mansions to the jungles of Cameroon.

Her battle-hardened employees suspect she’s just a spoiled rich girl with a mean corner kick. But Pia’s got some unexpected moves of her own. Will they be enough to bring her team through its mission?

Wow! What can I say about this book? It was high octane action spanning from Geneva to Cameroon which kept me on the edge of my seat from the start and Pia Sabel is a very likeable Lara Croftesque heroine. There were times i felt a little sorry for the seasoned soldiers with military training who were put to shame by Pia but she missed enough targets to make her somewhat human. Despite guessing some aspects of the conclusion of this mystery thriller there was a lot I didn’t see coming and no doubt much, much more to learn about Pia’s past. I certainly will be looking out for the sequel of this book.
