The Kill Shot by Nichole Christoff

Title: The Kill Shot
Series: Jamie Sinclair #2
Author: Nichole Christoff
Publisher: Alibi
Release Date:  March 17, 2015


In an explosive thriller for readers of Lee Child, Alex Berenson, and Brad Taylor, P.I. and security specialist Jamie Sinclair finds herself caught in a dangerous game of international cat-and-mouse.

Jamie Sinclair’s father has never asked her for a favor in her life. The former two-star general turned senator is more in the habit of giving his only child orders. So when he requests Jamie’s expertise as a security specialist, she can’t refuse—even though it means slamming the brakes on her burgeoning relationship with military police officer Adam Barrett. Just like that, Jamie hops aboard a flight to London with a U.S. State Department courier carrying a diplomatic pouch in an iron grip.

Jamie doesn’t have to wait long to put her unique skills to good use. When she and the courier are jumped by goons outside the Heathrow terminal, Jamie fights them off—but the incident puts her on high alert. Someone’s willing to kill for the contents of the bag. Then a would-be assassin opens fire in crowded Covent Garden, and Jamie is stunned to spot a familiar face: Adam Barrett, who saves her life with a single shot and calmly slips away. Jamie’s head—and her heart—tell her that something is very wrong. But she’s come way too far to turn back now.

Jamie Sinclair private investigator whose father Sinclair is a US Senator and former military general.  He is used to giving orders and issues his only child to go to London to escort a US diplomat courier and help bring a father and daughter back to America.  She is not given any say, as she leaves behind a potential relationship with a military police officer Adam Barrett as she leaves him behind.

On her arrival it does not tale Jamie long to find herself in danger as goons try to harm the courier at the airport.  She quickly realizes people are willing to kill for the daughter as the father is kidnapped.  When in a crowded tourist spot, Convent Gardens, an assassin opens fire and Barrett ends up shooting him dead and disappears in the crowd, she knows something is really wrong.

Can she trust Barrett with her life and those she is supposed to protect?  The more she investigates, the more her life is in danger.  Who can she trust in this political game and what role does her father play in this since he is not willing to tell or speak to her since she left for London?

An interesting read that keeps the reader guessing the players and their motives.
