rating : 3 : worth reading

Claire Randell finds herself an unwitting witness to a hit, and now someone is trying to kill her. First a sniper just misses her, then a bomb kills someone else. She needs police protection, but the uncompromising detective assigned to her case seems more interested in using her as bait to catch the notorious hitman.

A fast-paced and fun thriller, with lots of plausible twists and turns.
