An interesting take on a new PI - an ex-nun, turned security guard to the celebs. Well, it sort of works though Kate Melick is a character not especially developed too well in this story. Her faith or lack of faith rather, gets in the way of her job - a sort of should she kill him or shouldn't she?

When a young star, high on the excessive lifestyle too much money can provide is snatched from under the noses of Guardian Angels, Kate's security company, not unnaturally, Kate Mellick has to find her.

In so doing, we come across a plethora of people, some good, some bad and some, well, they fall through the gap in the middle. The story reads well, though for a security expert, she seems to lose her charges will regular ease, mainly because she similarly loses her various guns. In fact, throughout the book, all the characters who carry a gun seem to drop them or whatever. So, Chelsea Brewer, the young celeb, is found, is taken again, is found, is...oh well, the story does rattle along and leaves the reader rather bemused, none more so when, towards the finale the outcome is determined by a less than earthly scenario.

On the theme of bemusement, I do wonder why a Jaguar XK (Kate's car of choice) purrs like a panther; maybe a Panther purrs like a jaguar? Anyway, if you shut your mind to these offcuts and concentrate on the story, Kate and her rapidly dwindling team are reasonably okay, better than others in this genre but in need of filling out, I think, should the author decide he has a follow-on in mind.
