When Susan goes missing, nobody except Elvira, her mother, takes her disappearance seriously. That’s because Susan does stuff—parties, men, alcohol, maybe drugs. Elvira turns for help to Igor, Susan’s estranged father, a man with many connections.
The man for the job is Gunther Petraeus, a veteran mercenary with rather special people skills. Gunther enlists the help of Angela Fletcher – half his age, sentimentally damaged, but well… he knows her father… and she seems highly motivated. She’s an out of work intelligence analyst in desperate need of a job, living at her mom’s.
Gunther and Angela sinuously reconstruct Susan’s universe, stitching together a world of spies, dangerous beauties, murky artists and genuinely lost souls.
The Case of the Rebel Girl is the opening book of a series with Angela Fletcher and Gunther Petraeus as main characters.
