Charlie Fox really didnt care who shot dead her traitorous ex-army comrade Kirk Salter during a bodyguard training course in Germany. But when old flame Sean Meyer asks her to go undercover at Major Gilbys elite school and find out what happened to Kirk she just cant bring herself to refuse.
Keeping her nerve isnt easy when events bring back fears and memories shes worked so hard to forget. Its clear there are secrets at Einsbaden Manor that people are willing to kill to conceal. Some of the students on this particular course seem to have more on their minds than simply learning about close protection. Subjects like revenge, and murder. And whats the connection between the school and the recent spate of vicious kidnappings that have left a trail of bodies halfway across Europe?
To find out whats going on, Charlie must face up to her past and move quickly before she becomes the next casualty. She expected training to be tough, but can she graduate from this school of hard knocks alive?
