About the Author:

CJ Carver is a half-English, half-Kiwi author living just outside Bath. She lived in Australia for ten years before taking up long-distance rallies, driving London to Saigon and London to Cape Town. Her first novel, Blood Junction, won the CWA Debut Dagger.

Review:

Ex-army officer Jay McCaulay is back in another nail-biting suspense thriller. This time Jay is up against the Garrison, an ultra-conservative organization that supports the extermination of Muslins, murderers, pedophiles, rapists, and other "non-desirables." The Garrison has infiltrated every British institution--police, government, schools--so it's impossible to separate good guys from the bad. When Jay's friend and colleague, Max Blake, asks Jay to go to Paris to take his place at an urgent meeting, she has no idea that she will witness a brutal murder carried out by a mysterious blonde assassin who's a member of the Garrison, nor does she know that Max will be accused of the murder or that Jay herself will fall prey to the Garrison's terrifying plans. Meanwhile, Jay struggles to make up her mind whether she loves her fiancÚ, Tom, or whether her heart belongs to the sexy but mysterious Blake. Plenty of unsettling twists and turns, a high-octane plot, and a flashy but appealing heroine make this an excellent choice for fans of high-concept action thrillers. --Booklist, 1st July 2010
