Adam | 2 comments My sister and I have been trying to figure out this book for a while. She says I let her read it back when I was in high school so 1998-2002. I dont remember it at all and her memory is foggy to say the least. She believes it took place in the USA or Russia. She cant remember for certain, but feels that the little girl had some skills in her own right. She believes that he had a mission outside of protecting the young girl and that she was maybe just tagging along and ended up having to protect her.

We hope with the time frame of when it was read and the cover being Red and Black with a cross hair on it, one of you may have a clue as we certainly do not lol. If she remembers anything else, will update accordingly.

Thanks for the help!

Adam, did you eliminate the 1980 adult thriller Man on Fire by A.J. Quinnell - Joshua's suggestion? There are different cover images.

What's the genre (which we need to add to the header/ topic title) - e.g., for adults, teens or kids? thriller, spy, etc. novel?

Is the man related to the little girl? Why is she tagging along? Who and where are her parents?

JE | 60 comments David Baldacci has a similar sounding book I read a while back. Might be it
