No easy answers. No big international spy secret bank accounts. No superheroes or magic. Just her wits, guts… And a very large gun.
L.A. is a new world for Kim until it turns just as deadly as everywhere she's been before. Caught in a violent hostage situation--trapped on the freeway in the middle of the city with fiery explosions in from and in back of her, surrounded by a terrorist mastermind's assault rifle-toting henchmen on all sides--an unarmed Kim has to fight to save both her brother, Donnie, and herself. And, all the while, she's unaware of how much is really at stake: a revenge-driven scheme to unleash an apocalyptic weapon, horrifying beyond description.
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 . . .
