    I bought this book for free on Amazon as I decided yesterday I wished to read a cool, short thrilling novella that I could race through within 24 hours.It is a story about our hero; FBI agent Ingrid Skyberg. She happens to be in London doing some lecturing to uninterested English officers in Scotland Yard about how to handle violence to children cases. The.. she gets a text. Meet me outside and a car is waiting...This is how our story commences. The "long and the short" of it is that a very important young lady has gone missing and she needs to be found. Plus no one can know about it. To stop the leaking and to get the best woman on the case they ask for Ingrid.As it was a short book - I read it as having about four main plot points and then built up dialogues and character building and reacting until we got to these, often great scenes. The supporting cast to Ingrid was highly colourful and interesting so I have to respect Eva Hudson for making me care about these characters within 174 pages. They aren't that complex yet, but this is her prelude to a distinguished series she has established and I will 100% be checking out the rest. Nick Angelis is a charming, mysterious, ex-army officer helping Ingrid on the case and yes, he has a soft spot for her. I won't say too much, but the person behind the missing girl is very clever and throws a lot of false senses around. It is quite simply written but that is what I needed and it worked well. The pacing of the book was exquisite. The story wasn't predictable, however; with it being a short book they always seem to progress to the right scent straight away. Whether this is the ingeniousness of our hero or a writing device to keep it short and sharp doesn't matter because it was very good plot progression within the medium. The ending was sort of a hoo-ha, the day is saved (I don't think this is a spoiler in these sort of books but if you consider it is then let me know and I will edit it).I will 100% be checking out the rest of the series. This was a very pleasant surprise. To reiterate, it is free. You would be silly not to at least check it out.Peace and love. James xwww.youandibooks.wordpress.com

    This is a light weight book, a prequel to her later books.It's quite fun, not very thought provoking, not an 'urgent' book.I admire anybody who can complete and sell a novel, believe me that's tough. So I wish Ms Skyberg the best of luck.It won't become a classic, it's not up there with Donnelly, Stark, Westlake, Steinhauer, Coben.But for amusing fun if you like a light-weight detective-verging-on-spy type thing, you will find it fun.

    Three agents of the FBI are in London to give a presentation when the woman giving the talk is called out for a phone call and shortly the second woman is also called of the session leaving the lone man to finish up. The women are escorted to a room in the US Embassy and left in a locked room after having all their electronic devices confiscated. One complains loudly about the loss of her phone and the inability to talk with her children back in the states, while the other, Ingrid Skyberg, is quiet and tries to indicate to her compatriot that she should be aware that the were probably being watched. When they are finally freed, Ingrid is kept and the other sent back to the conference. It seems that the Secretary of State is on a delicate mission in France and somehow her 18 year old granddaughter has managed to join her after having a fight with her parents. Now it appears that the granddaughter has managed to elude her private security and has taken off to destinations unknown. Ingrid is teamed with a private security agent and Embassy staff as well as Scotland yard to track down the girl and get her back to France without letting the Secretary know and distract her from the negotiations. With a short time frame to succeed and false trails left by the smart 18 year old they have quite a task ahead of them.

    This eBook was an unexpected treat. Although not a Christian novel, as I usually prefer, this novella was clean and decent. There was some light profanity, in appropriate settings, but none of the F-word or super-offensive stuff so common in today's media and entertainment. There was no sex or graphic violence. Although one character, Nick Angelis, was clearly attracted to the point-of-view character, Ingrid Skyberg, there was none of the usual over-the-top romantic hanky-panky going on. Angelis flirted and tried to impress Ingrid, but he was a gentleman when she resisted his charm and good looks. While the relationship was still open to further development in sequels, the two did not end up getting any more serious than colleagues by the conclusion of the book.The plot otherwise was interesting. The grand-daughter of the Secretary of State involved in peace talks went missing--having ditched her government-appointed escort. Ingrid, an FBI agent in London, is assigned to track her down before her grandmother, the press, or anyone else gets wind of it. Paired with Angelis, an employee of a private security company connected with the US embassy, Ingrid does her best to follow the scanty leads they have on where the girl could have secreted herself and what she was up to. Although the detective work often seems secondary to the sometimes adversarial relationship between agents Skyberg and Angelis, the action is fun and fast-paced, as the two have only one day to track down the missing teen. As is typical with novellas, the book ends abruptly, without the satisfying denouement one more often finds in longer books. However, the loose ends are tied up, and the foundation is laid for a series of books about the same character(s).I recommend this book to anyone who would enjoy a quick, easy read with a touch of suspense and action, without a lot of peripheral nonsense. It won't strain your budget or your brain, but will provide a few hours of entertainment.

    Well !!! From zero to hour in one fell swoop ! I hated The Loyal Servant, thought it was terrible and I have had this one downloaded for almost a year and kept putting it off....I'm not sure how that happened. I either got it before the first one I read by her or because I'd deleted the other one I downloaded it in error. Plus I don't usually download a book under 200 pages and this is a little shy of that. Anyway, I thought I'd finally take a look....I loved it ! A terrific protagonist-I liked her immensely. She was spunky, good at her job AND she has really nice manners which greatly appealed to me. I whizzed through this in a day, helped too by a lack of internet for a couple of nights-(everso liberating) !! It held my interest the whole way through and I'm pleased to see it heralds the beginning of a series which I'll definitely be sticking with. I am sure Angelis will feature in the other stories too-that looks like it will be a very interesting partership, maybe in more ways than one-who knows. I really enjoyed the character of Rachel too-it would be terrific to see her make a reappearance as she was very bright and I liked her a lot-she made me laugh.I did spot a couple of dropped speechmarks and at one point Ingrid mentioned the 18 year old granddaughter when I couldn't see how she knew this then I saw turned used where turning should've been but that was it for errors which was also highly impressive.I was surprised how many differing careers this author has had !! A really varied selection for sure. I'm looking forward to the next in this series.

    A great easy and quick read. But interesting too.Ingrid Skyberg - FBI agent is in the UK at a conference when she is left a text message to leave immediately and a car is waiting for her.she is taken to the Embassy where she is tasked with finding a teenage girl, but this is not just any teenage girl. This is the granddaughter of the Secretary of State.Time is against Ingrid, and she has a task on her hands to find this girl and find her quickly.For a short read there seemed to be an awful lot packed into this book.Well worth reading and a good introduction to a series, I will give more of Eva's books a try in the near future.

    I like Eva Hudson, and this series. Hadn't read the prequel yet, sets the scene for later books nicely. A quick easy read, perfect for summer garden reading in one go!

    A man's-man British agent and a thinks-she-can-do-anything female American agent track and chase an 18-year old girl rendezvouing with her boyfriend. No one else knows and they have no backup because her grandma's doing delicate negotiations and they don't want to "upset" her. As if a governmental agent doesn't know how to be poised and self-controlled during crisis. It's ridiculously hard to catch this kid as she's nobody special but somehow by staying "off the grid" and running super fast, she can evade CIA agents for days. If you're going to do an action thriller, at least have it make sense.

    A fun readRun Girl is a fun book to read. Because of the length of the book, you can finish it with just a few hours of reading. I thought it was a great intro to the series and the characters. I would recommend it to anyone interested in London, government agencies or a strong female lead.

    A fast and quick read, in case you're looking for some groundbreaking thriller then this is not for you. No particular twist and turn out that one can't guess. May or may not read other sequel books.

    This is a novella that I received free on my Nook. The Secretary of State is ready to leave for Paris when her teenage granddaughter shows up at the airport and insists that she go along. The girl is rebellious and spoiled by grandma. Then the fun begins!

    Never underestimate an 18 year old girlJayne Whitticker, Secretary of State, is about to board a special plane bound across the Atlantic on a highly sensitive mission. As the minutes tick by an imminent storm is brewing when suddenly she and her driver are stopped from boarding by an unexpected security breach. At the last possible moment, she finds herself with her teenage granddaughter and no time to change her flight plans but to take Rachel with her, possibly risking Jayne's entire career. As in most overwhelming teenage emergencies, there are options to what she is wanting, but time has run out, more than one storm is brewing, weatherwise and personal, and as Secretary of State, Jayne has no option. Talk about emotional blackmail! She must carry on with her mission negotiating a peace deal between three warring African nations and will have to take the girl with her to Strasbourg and hire a private security guard to chaperone Rachel and keep her out of trouble.This incident could go down badly for Jayne's future if Rachel creates any waves.Switch now to London where a training session is going on by the FBI's Violent Crimes Against Children program in the New Scotland Yard. Enter Ingrid Skyberg who has become a last minute fill-in. She has just arrived in London for this session. With high profile replacements and heads of departments scattered around Europe any number of things could go wrong, and they do. Partnerships are split up between strangers when there is a missing person search call-out. This is a high-level search that skips across countries. Ingrid and her wild-card partner must overcome differences and work together as FBI Agent and private International Security agent from the UK. The chase is on and it is not an easy one. This missing person always seems to be a few steps ahead. A unique novella, I found it kept my interest and was both amusing and incredulous. A suspenseful chase full of red herrings. I enjoyed it as an introduction the series.

    I gave this a medium rating because there was something about it that drew me in; I haven't quite worked it out yet but hope things will get clearer if I try the next in the series. The plot was set up and dialogue and actions seemed juvenile and forced at times and a undesirable character was introduced and then forgotten. We will see, there must be something there for this feeling to still be here.

    Hmm. Another free download, another disappointment. I really should ensure I have a spare novel with me at all times as opposed to taking a punt with free iBook thrillers that prove to be less than thrilling. I should read free classics instead, maybe. This wasn't a complete disaster - the author's use of English was good, the pace of the story (an American politician's grand-daughter goes missing in London and a male/female pairing race against the clock to track her down) was also well maintained, and it wasn't an unpleasant read, just repeatedly irritating. My main gripes with the story related to its lack of believability and gaping holes. A female FBI agent ends up embroiled in the tale and ends up heroine due to some bizarre set of coincidences and daft reasons related somehow to avoiding diplomatic scandal. Most supporting characters are shallow stereotypes, and almost without exception every male character except the leading man is an awful bastard, and every female character is strong and super intelligent. Most annoying was the framing of the story for an American audience. The author is English, but writes about London and England in a deeply unconvincing manner full of clich├ęs and simplifications. Dialogue and descriptions of vacations, sidewalks, etc. jarred terribly with me, as did the idea of a girl fleeing to London with just Euros in cash (possible I know, but in real life she'd have had an amount of trouble). The whole vibe of an English author writing 'in American' about English settings and characters - it pushed an average thriller down into the realms of 'dislike' for me.
