And they will stop at nothing to silence him. I'm certainly up for it. It demanded that we take individual responsibility. Miranda Darling writes with old-school elegance, confidence and meticulous attention to detail of far flung and glamorous places, where the rich and the famous meet the gorgeous and the villainous. Her physical beauty is balanced against her physical prowess, her mental anguish at the break-up of her relationship balanced against her mental acuity.

To be casual with the lives of others was evil. I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably. Having said all that, I really do believe that reading this book could be like buying the first pen and ink drawings of a young artist who then goes on to become the darling no pun intended of the art world, the ownership of whose earliest works does wonders for one's reputation, and I do believe that this will be only the first of Miranda Darling's books, probably the first Stevie novel, and that she will just get better and better and better. As a risk-assessment analyst for London-based Hazard Limited, Stevie handles tasks like advising publicity-hungry movie star couple Douglas Hammer and Sandy Belle on measures to protect their infant son, Kennedy-Jack. Fortunately you're kept from wondering too hard as the pace of the book charges along, keeping you focused on the present, rather than peaking back at the past.

She's going to help assess the level of security risk to the head of the Russian Central Bank, but, Valery Kozkov, politician, bank regulator and fearless crusader against corruption, and friend of Henning's has a bigger problem - his teenage daughter has disappeared. Miranda Darling began her career as a fashion model in Paris and London, then went on to read English and Modern Languages at Oxford University. Miranda Darling touches a very serious topic of sex trade and human trafficking with good intent, but I feel the importance and meaning is lost in the simplicity of the language she uses. The action swings from Sardinia in summer to diva season in Venice and to the billionaire's playgrounds of Morocco and the Mediterranean as Somali pirates target and stalk cruising mega-yachts and their impossibly rich and glamorous passengers Stevie Duveen exploded onto the pages of Miranda Darling's thrilling debut novel The Troika Dolls, taking on the Russia mafia and putting herself in terrible jeopardy in the process.
