Macmillan, 2019. ISBN: 9781447298281.
(Age: 15+) Recommended. 'Homeland Security agent, Kit Steel, is committed to avenge terrorism. And she's after the blood of her nemesis, one of world's most ruthless and dangerous criminals, Vincente Carpio. He has the blood of her husband and young son on his hands, and Kit is unwavering in her determination to see him kept behind bars forever. . . Harbour Union chief, Cormack McConnell, has lived his life close to the wire above and below the law, and he controls everything that happens on Boston's waterfront. Someone wants him out of the way, fast.' (Publisher)
The easy to follow storyline and highly readable text make this action packed story very enjoyable. It brings up terrorism and criminal behaviour.
This is recommended for older YA from 15 onwards and is most suitable for those who like thrillers as there are many twists and turns.
