The Reluctant Assassin (W.A.R.P #1)
The FBI has a secret hideout. A place no one would ever look. The past.
Chevie Savano, the FBI's youngest special agent, is in England on the most boring assignment ever. But not for much longer . . .
History's deadliest magician, Albert Garrick, has escaped Victorian London and landed in the present, along with Riley, his apprentice assassin. For his next trick, Garrick is planning to return to the past, taking with him knowledge that will rewrite life as we know it.
Chevie's training didn't cover time-travelling killers, but only she can stop Garrick. And the clock is ticking . . .
