THE CRUELTY


a novel by s. bergstrom

See why critics are calling The Cruelty: "Smart, beautifully written..." and "A definite must read."

 

"I'm every bit the devil you imagined."

When her diplomat father is kidnapped and the U.S. Government refuses to help, 17-year-old Gwendolyn Bloom sets off across the underbelly of Europe to rescue him. Following the only lead she has—the name of a Palestinian informer living in France—Gwendolyn plunges into a brutal world of arms smuggling and human trafficking. As she journeys from the slums of Paris, to the nightclubs of Berlin, to the violent heart of the most feared criminal family in Prague, Gwendolyn discovers that to survive in this new world she must become every bit as cruel as the men she’s hunting.
