  • Spying, romance, death-defying escapes from evil pursuers: it’s all in a day’s work for Bianca St. Ives. In this third in the Guardian series (following The Moscow Deception, 2018), St. Ives, master of disguises, is on the run from killers while trying to plant disinformation in the hands of a hostile foreign power. Acting as her protector is the handsome, capable Colin Rogan, who may not be trustworthy. St. Ives finds this Bond-type partner irresistible, a subplot that sometimes gets corny. Overall, however, the tale comprises a long, exciting chase (leading to a gratifyingly suspenseful conclusion). Robards' fans will devour this latest in the series; try it, too, with patrons who enjoy Iris Johansen. -- Henrietta Verma (Reviewed 2/1/2019) (Booklist, vol 115, number 11, p35)
  • /* Starred Review */ As part of an effort to eradicate all evidence of a clandestine government program, a ruthless CIA hit squad targets super thief Bianca St. Ives in bestseller Robards’s stellar third Guardian thriller (after 2018’s The Moscow Deception). Meanwhile, Bianca’s current nemesis and one-time love interest, Colin Rogan, tells Bianca that he’ll call off the hit squad if she’ll pose as idealistic NSA contractor Lynette Holbrook, who has stolen sensitive government secrets, and plant these secrets, which have now been replaced with fake information, with the North Korean authorities. Bianca has good reason not to trust Colin, who doesn’t control the CIA hit squad despite his claim that he does, but after they’re nearly killed when their car is remotely hijacked, Bianca agrees to his terms. With Colin as her handler, Bianca embarks on a mission that takes her from Paris to North Korea, where’s she kidnapped and taken to a squalid North Korean prison camp. Bianca must use her distinctive and extensive skill set, and learn to trust Colin, if they’re going to get out of this one alive. Bianca and Colin’s sizzling chemistry makes for a great match up, and the cinematic, relentless action is sprinkled with Robards’s trademark humor. This is Bianca’s most exciting and satisfying adventure yet. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media. (Mar.) --Staff (Reviewed 01/28/2019) (Publishers Weekly, vol 266, issue 5, p)
  • The authorities have finally caught up with Bianca St. Ives, who rights the world's wrongs by stealing money back from swindlers, and they'll give her a break—if she goes undercover as a female hacker who stole intelligence from the North American Aerospace Defense Command. --Barbara Hoffert (Reviewed 10/15/2018) (Library Journal, vol 143, issue 17, p41)
