Please note: Run Girl is a novella - roughly half the length of an average novel.A strange new city, a missing girl, and a race against timeIn Europe to help broker a peace deal between warring African nations, Secretary of State Jayne Whitticker is in the middle of delicate negotiations when her favourite grandchild disappears from Paris.Special Agent Ingrid Skyberg is hauled out of her FBI training session at Scotland Yard to head the hunt for the 18-year-old girl, who the FBI believe is now in London. The problem is, Ingrid has only one lead, just a few hours to track her down and can't call in the local cops for assistance for fear the story will be leaked to the press.Will she succeed in her unexpected mission? Or will her failure lead to the collapse of the crucial peace talks?With so much resting on her decisions and subsequent actions, one thing's for sure: Ingrid will give everything she's got to find the girl and save the day.The story of Ingrid Skyberg's very first case in London, Run Girl sets the scene for her future adventures.Q&A with Eva HudsonQ: Why did you want to write about an FBI agent?The FBI get to investigate the most interesting crimes and they have access to exciting resources - like helicopters and automatic weapons. For a storyteller, that opens up a lot of possibilities that can take your story—and your reader—on more thrilling adventures.Q: Why have you set your FBI thrillers in London?London's my home town, I know it and love it and it never occurred to me to set the books anywhere else.Q: But would an FBI agent really be working in London?Absolutely. The aim of FBI agents based in the American embassy in London is to work closely with the police and security services in the UK to help fight international terrorism, organized crime, cyber crime, and – this is where Ingrid comes in – general 'criminal matters'. As the FBI's sole representative in the Criminal Division, Ingrid has an awful lot of crime to fight.Q: You're a Brit, so why have you used American spelling?It's not just American spelling, I also use American English. The books are written from Ingrid's perspective - we're inside her head in every scene - so it makes sense that she would think 'sidewalk' and not pavement. Using American English was really the only option, but when the Brits speak, they always use British English.PRAISE FOR EVA HUDSON"A brilliantly-paced thriller...
