Description

The first adventure in Eva Hudson's enormously popular Ingrid Skyberg series

Ingrid Skyberg joined the FBI to bring one man to justice: the man who abducted her best friend when she was fourteen. It's been eighteen years and she's never stopped looking, not for him… or for the friend who has never been seen since.

Now the Secretary of State's granddaughter has gone missing in London, and it falls to Ingrid to find the teenager. There's something about girls who disappear from view that gnaws at Ingrid, that makes her care more than she should, that makes her lose perspective and take unnecessary risks.

It's Ingrid's first time in London—she's only in town to train the Metropolitan Police––so she needs some local knowledge. She is reluctantly paired with a suave, good-looking and arrogant secret intelligence operative who leads her through the city's back alleys and corridors of power. He's charismatic and dynamic but when his methods become dangerously unconventional, the two of them clash… in more ways than one.

Run Girl sets the scene for Ingrid's future adventures working out of the US embassy in London. If an American citizen lands in trouble… or winds up dead… or gets accused of a crime they didn't commit, Special Agent Ingrid Skyberg is on their case.

Unlock the thrills and twists of this up-all-night crime thriller series, perfect for fans of gripping mysteries, strong women investigators and any reader who has ever wondered if there's a female version of Jack Reacher. There is, and her name is Ingrid Skyberg.

Please note: Run Girl is a novella - roughly half the length of an average novel.

    The plot could have been deeper with real suspense. Was that really all there was to the story? The dynamic between the main character & the handsome coworker worked but story line could only take them so. I’m not left wanting to read anything else by the author. Sorry 😬

    The story was not what I expected! It was well written and a fairly good read but I was disappointed how a girl could out wit a FBI agent so easily

    Did the author really have to call Republicans uniformed and stupid? I’m one and quite frankly I can’t believe you the gall to call us that. Can’t stand the liberal mindset. Talk about uniformed! Really bad choice of topic. Do you really equate dating a republican with bringing home a black guy to dinner? Anything to piss off the parents? Not reading any more of the trash you write

  • Too Boring

    The characters lacked interest and the plot was unrealistic. The overblown descriptions are reminiscent of a middle school student trying to meet the required number of words on a writing assignment. The reader response was "who cares?" I did not care enough to finish it.
  • Fast paced, maintains interest, but logic problems exist

    I read this in about 4 hours. There are issues with the basis of the urgency of the problem which serves as the mcguffin of the story line. I also see sexist elements in the characters drawn and their responses. But the plot is fast paced and does not get bogged down anywhere. It does reveal a genuine enjoyment of London. I like the problem solving process. It is a fine distraction of a read.
