Foreign correspondent Faith Zanetti has her dream job: She lives in swanky overseas hotels, on somebody else's dime, and she's in nearly constant danger of being blown up. What's the appeal? With enough sniper-fire, nobody counts your drinks or your inappropriate one-night stands. And with tomorrow's newspaper deadline always looming, there's never time to think about the things you should have done differently. But when Faith's best friend and favorite drinking pal is murdered, there isn't enough vodka in Israel to blot out the pain she's spent a lifetime running from. In fact, there's only one possible response: Light a cigarette and go after the story.

About the author (2008)

Oxford graduate, single girl columnist, and former Moscow correspondent for "The London Times," Anna Blundy has lived and worked in Russia on many occasions doing things from singing in a blues band in the early 1990s and making coffee at the ABC News bureau to interviewing Mikhail Gorbachev live in Russian on Radio Svoboda in 1998. Anna is a critically acclaimed novelist whose first book, "Every Time We Say Goodbye," told the story of her foreign correspondent father who was killed by a sniper in El Salvador in 1989. She now lives between London and Tuscany and, in her time, she has drunk a LOT of vodka, neat. Her next Faith Zanetti thriller is coming soon from Thomas Dunne Books / St. Martin's Minotaur.
