Clever. Cunning. Highly skilled. There’s only one Bianca St. Ives. And for her enemies, that’s one too many.
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.
In bestseller Robard's exciting follow-up to 2017's The Ultimatum, master thief Bianca St. Ives has recently discovered an explosive secret about herself, and she's being hunted by those who are desperate to keep that secret contained. When she learns that a $1 million contract is out on her life, her adoptive father, Mason Thayer, tells her that he can get the contract called off if she steals King Priam's Treasure priceless artifacts thought to have belonged to Helen of Troy right out from under Vladimir Putin's nose. With the help of her friend, hacker extraordinaire Miles Davis "Doc" Ziegler, Bianca just may pull it off. The delightful, capable, and frequently funny Bianca is an intoxicating combo of Stephanie Plum and James Bond, and her globe-trotting quest takes her from the glittering casinos of Macau all the way to Moscow, paving the way to a (literally) explosive finale. Dodging bullets and fists are all in a day's work for Bianca, and, while her adventures may stretch credulity, readers will likely be having too much fun to care.
