ABOUT THE BOOKS:

The Cruelty:
One teen is on a mission to save her father. Or die trying. When Gwendolyn Bloom's father vanishes, she sets off on a journey she never bargained for. Traveling under a new identity in a world of assassins, spies, and criminal masterminds, she uncovers a disturbing truth. To bring her father back alive, she must become every bit as cruel as the men holding him captive. Taken meets The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Bourne Identity in this action-packed debut thriller (optioned for film by Jerry Bruckheimer).

The Greed (The Cruelty #2):
Gwendolyn Bloom is dead. But even armed with a new passport and identity, the danger is far from over. Her father is safe . . . but Gwen still hasn't untangled all his lies from the truth. Meanwhile, her enemies are closing in with a vengeance. She found her father when he disappeared off the face of the earth--can she survive being on the other end of a manhunt? Gwen faces ever greater danger from the men who hunt her in this action-packed, high-stakes YA sequel to The Cruelty, by Scott Bergstrom.
