Jason Bourne meets The Sopranos in this breathtaking adventureSara Jane Rispoli is a normal sixteen-year-old coping with school and a budding romance--until her parents and brother are kidnapped and she discovers her family is deeply embedded in the Chicago Outfit (aka the mob).Now on the run from a masked assassin, rogue cops and her turncoat uncle, Sara Jane is chased and attacked at every turn, fighting back with cold fury as she searches for her family. It's a quest that takes her through concealed doors and forgotten speakeasies--a city hiding in plain sight. Though armed with a .45 and 96K in cash, an old tattered notebook might be her best defense--hidden in its pages the secret to "ultimate power." It's why she's being pursued, why her family was taken, and could be the key to saving all of their lives.Action packed, with fresh, cinematic writing, Cold Fury is a riveting and imaginative adventure readers will devour.

Cold Fury had Sara Jane swing from wise guy remarks complete with a briefcase, a gun, thousands of dollars and a mysterious notebook to being, if not quite swoony over a boy (the words I think I might love so and so were used) then at least sounding younger much than the sixteen years old she was . ...
***FINAL RATING: 2.60 STARS***CATCHALLI definitely struggled with Cold Fury. It wasn't the most amazing book I've ever read. And yet somehow I also really enjoyed it. I really liked a unique sci-fi concept that it has and the story was modern yet also historical. I definitely found it boring at many...
