‘A taut, sensual thriller that grips from the first page … sublime’ – Karin Slaughter

A brand new series – non-supernatural – involving a female assassin.

Nadia Stafford is an ex-cop – fired after she shot a child killer. She now works for one small mafia family: the way she sees it, no one innocent is getting hurt.

But then a serial killer starts murdering innocent people in the style of a hitman. The police investigation threatens to unmask several professional hitmen, including Nadia. So she bands together with five other hitmen, including her mentor, the mysterious Jack. Together they decide to hunt down the killer – but perhaps that’s just what he wants. Are they walking into a devious and brilliantly planned trap?

A brand new series from the author of the bestselling Women of the Otherworld series.

"Armstrong's expert plotting never falters, and she's able to keep ramping up the intensity throughout...top-notch entertainment sure to seduce fans of tough heroines.
This one is a real hoot, and I hope Nadia returns soon.
Margaret Cannon, THE GLOBE AND MAIL
The hugely talented Armstrong delves into a truly shadowy world where honor and morals are set to a different frequency. In Nadia Stafford, she's created an anti-heroine whose motivations are convoluted, yet utterly gripping. Take a walk on the dark side-where contract killers become both the bait and the hunter of a vicious serial killer.
A taut, sensual thriller that grips from the first page ... sublime
Karin Slaughter, THE NEW YORK TIMES
Clever, quirky, hip and funny. More please!
