Keeping the brilliant and beautiful CTO of a unicorn company alive is an assignment that is more difficult than it sounds
Oceanview Publishing, 2022
Her assignments were always to kill someone. That’s what a hitman—or hitwoman—is paid to do—and that is what she does. Then comes a surprise assignment—keep someone alive!
She is hired to protect Virginia Martin, the stunning and brilliant chief technology officer of a hot startup with an innovation that will change the world. This new job catches her at a time in her life when she’s disillusioned, even depressed. It’s not the crushing depression she’d suffered when she’d lost her family and abruptly started this career, but over time, the life of a hired killer has taken a toll on her spirit.
She’s confused about the “why” but she addresses her charge as she always does, with skill and stealth, determined to keep this young CTO alive in the midst of the twinned worlds of innovation and high finance.
Some people have to die as she discharges her responsibility to protect this superstar woman amid the crumbling worlds of money and future technical wonders.
The spirit of an assassin—and her nameless dog—permeates this struggle to help a young woman as powerful forces build to deny her.
Fans of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Dexter will love Exit Strategy.
“Of even more interest than the mystery the protagonist must solve is the mystery of who she herself is. Readers will look forward to seeing what’s next in store for her.” — Publishers Weekly
“Honestly, I wasn’t sure how she could continue the story of her second-career hit woman, but EXIT STRATEGY unfolded a complete story on its own, while leaving the door open to a third. What grabbed me right away with both books is the voice – wounded, laconic, and utterly irresistible.” — Clea Simon, bestselling author of Hold Me Down
