By Christopher Nicole
When an attempt is made to kidnap the only daughter of the Sultan of Kharram and his English wife, their reaction is to get her out of the country as quickly as possible to a safe haven – the home of her maternal grandfather in England.
But she still must be protected, and Jessica Jones of Special Branch is appointed to the task.
Despite her vast experience of protection work, JJ and her team soon discover their task is far more dangerous than they supposed.
Worse, it slowly dawns on her that Princess Karina – Poor Darling to her mother – is by no means the innocent young girl she appears.
In her efforts to protect her charge and prevent incipient revolution in Kharram, JJ finds herself engaged in a deadly battle of wits and bullets, murder and mayhem…
