From the New York Times–bestselling author of The Ultimatum, a master thief is forced to rob a Moscow museum to save her life.
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.
Praise for The Moscow Deception
"The delightful, capable, and frequently funny Bianca is an intoxicating combo of Stephanie Plum and James Bond. . . . 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." —Publishers Weekly
"A fast-paced, exciting and highly readable thriller. . . . Author Karen Robards has crafted a novel that reads very much like the literary versions of "Alias" or "Mission: Impossible" might, and Bianca is every bit as capable and inventive as Sydney Bristow or Ethan Hunt." —Bookreporter
