Popular fantasy author Kelley Armstrong (Women of the Otherworld series) makes her first foray into crime fiction, with the debut of a series of non-paranormal novels featuring female assassin Nadia Stafford.

Nadia Stafford is one of the world's few female contract killers. A former cop, drummed out of the force because of a scandal, she is an expert at disguise and cool under pressure. But when fellow hitman Jack arrives on the scene, Nadia's very private existence is seriously challenged.

A series of victims are being murdered seemingly at random all over the country -- different areas, different walks of life, different MOs. There is nothing to tie them together except a random page torn out of a single book: Helter Skelter . But does the Helter Skelter killer -- as the hysterical media now dub him -- have a real connection to Charles Manson? Or is there something even more sinister at work?

Is this, in fact -- as Jack believes -- the carefully planned exit strategy of a fellow professional killer, determined to leave the life, but equally determined to clear up an old mistake? And, if so, which is the real victim?

Now, the highly suspicious and secretive hitman community will have to break their cover -- at least, to each other -- and help take down this killer before the cops and the Feds discover his true connection to their own secret, exclusive society....

I just couldn't get into this series. Love Kelley Armstrong but this was lackluster and didn't grab my attention. Returned it without finishing it.

I really liked this murder mystery! Lots of action and intrigue.

Interesting new heroine, fast paced read but lacks the punch of her supernatural series.

Nadia Stafford is a ex-police woman, who is now a contract killer. She runs a nature lodge in Canada. This is a great series. Nadia is someone you shouldn’t like, she kills for a living but she’s still a good person, a character that you will like and want more of.

Interesting premise but not fully realized. An actioner that never took flight.
