I get the distinct impression that this well written book is the beginning of a series, and I am quite pleased to know that fact. It particularly impresses me when a new author releases a book that I enjoy reading, and this book is certainly in that milieu.
The book introduces the reader to Pia Sabel, 25, a former Olympic gold medalist in soccer (and the heir to a billion dollar family fortune), who is placed by her businessman father as head of a security firm. Since she has no experience in the security, her father expects her to run the firm by sitting behind a desk, and sending others to do the jobs for which they were hired. That's not the way Pia does things, and she gets herself right into the middle of murder, money laundering, and a crew of nasty people. There appears to be danger at every twist and turn of the plot, but Pia manages to overcome all obstacles, although some of the timings she does tend to strain credibility (but I didn't allow that to detract from my enjoyment of the book).
There's a hint that Pia may use her firm to seek answers to who and why her birth parents were assassinated, but that, of course, is for another book. I look forward to reading more about the intrepid (and beautiful) Pia.
