Review by Booklist Reviews

Espionage, politics, and high school combine in this fast-paced sequel to The Fixer (2015). Tess is back at her prestigious private school for children of politicians and diplomats. She has agreed to help someone run for student council president, a move that doesn't seem like it would make her the target of a sadistic fellow student. But revenge is just the starting move in this cat-and-mouse thriller. An assassination attempt, kidnapping, and murder threaten not only Tess but also the lives of those she loves. Still-unanswered questions leave plenty of room for the next installment. Recommend to readers of Ally Carter's Spy High books. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
