Run Girl (Ingrid Skyberg FBI Thrillers Book 1)

Please note: Run Girl is a novella – roughly half the length of an average novel

A missing girl and a race against time: Ingrid Skyberg’s first case in London

In Europe to help broker a peace deal, Secretary of State Jayne Whitticker is in the middle of delicate negotiations when her favorite grandchild goes missing in London.

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. 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 back-up in case the story gets leaked to the press.

Will Ingrid find the girl in time? Or will her failure lead to the collapse of crucial peace talks? Enjoy the ride in this fast-paced novella as the toughest Special Agent ever to come out of Quantico buckles up for a thrilling adventure. Resourceful, tenacious and indestructible, Ingrid Skyberg is unputdownable: she can take whatever her adversaries throw at her and still get up for more.

Run Girl sets the scene for Ingrid’s future adventures working out of the US embassy in London. If an American citizen lands in trouble… or winds up dead… or gets accused of a crime they didn’t commit, Ingrid Skyberg is on their case.

Q&A with Eva Hudson

Q: 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.


“A brilliantly-paced thriller… Perfectly balanced between character and plot. Very gripping and suspenseful” – Sophie Hannah
“It immediately draws you in… there’s suspense right from the beginning” – Penny Smith
“Great dialogue” – Mark Billingham


After years of enjoying thrillers and police procedurals by authors like Lee Child and Michael Connelly, Eva was inspired to write thrillers herself. In 2011 she won the inaugural Lucy Cavendish fiction prize for her first novel, The Loyal Servant.
