No easy answers. No big international spy secret bank accounts. No superheroes or magic. Just her wits, guts… And a very large gun.
Training to be a killer was only the first half of the job. Now Kim has to put her life on the line – not just to get revenge on her crooked ex-boss, but to keep from being killed herself before she can take her first shot. Her only help is Cole, the crippled hitman who agrees to show her how to use a gun. And they’re up against not only a crew of murderous security guards – but Kim’s own fears and doubts as well. If she’s going to survive, she’ll have to do things she’s never done before – and become something beyond her wildest imagining.
Noted science fiction, fantasy, and noir author K. W. Jeter takes a new turn in the thriller genre, building on the dark, gritty moods of his previous science fiction and horror novels. Fans of mystery and suspense novels will find a lot to like in the Kim Oh series. It recalls Richard Stark's (Donald Westlake's) Parker novels but with a smart, tough female taking the lead. Kim is cousin to Sara Paretski's V.I. Warshawsky and Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). Sit back, buckle up, get ready for the ride . . .
