Kindra’s moral compass has never pointed north, but that’s what happens when you’re raised as an assassin and a thief. At sixteen, she’s fantastic with a blade, an expert at slipping through the world unnoticed, and trapped in a life she didn’t chose. But nothing in her training prepares her for what happens when her father misses a target.
In the week-long aftermath, Kindra breaks ranks for the first time in her life. She steals documents, starts questioning who their client is and why the target needs to die, botches a second hit on her father’s target, and is nearly killed. And that’s before she’s kidnapped by a green-eyed stranger connected to a part of her childhood she’d almost forgotten.
Kindra has to decide who to trust and which side of the battle to fight for. She has to do it fast and she has to be right, because the wrong choice will kill her just when she’s finally found something worth living for.

“Repeat?” Odira requested.
“Nothing.” He cleared his throat, and Kindra heard the shifting of cloth, probably as he settled into position. She glanced up at the office building across the street.
No. Stop. Her part of the job was down here. Watching for cops. For danger. For anything that might interfere with the successful completion of the job.
She looked away before her eyes locked on the cracked-open window on the fifth floor or spotted the glint of her father’s customized L115A3 AWM sniper rifle. Despite visual obstruction from the trees, the shot was basically seventy feet of open space. Not exactly a challenge for her father.
The client didn’t want silent or secret or subtle. They wanted untraceable, but loud and public. That was fine. The Westons could do showmanship just as well as they could do invisible, but . . .
Her eyes found the kids again. Good. The nanny was leading them out of the courtyard. Orders from the client for a clean hit should keep the collateral damage at zero, but accidents happened. It’d be better if they were gone before the strike.
“ETA two minutes,” Odira said.
Odira had hooked in to the internal security system of Gasper Exports last week and had been using it to track Bernard Gasper’s daily schedule. To the minute. Now it was helping Sera choreograph his death.
“No change inside.” Seraphina moved heavily enough that the squeak of her chair came through the comm. “He’s taking the information—papers; still no flash drive seen—out of the safe. The packet is in the inside pocket of his overcoat. Multiple pages.”
Oh, thank Atropos, he’s taking it all with him. Kindra had not wanted to sneak into the building to steal his physical backups of the files he’d received several days ago.
“Stall him ten paces west of the trash can on the east side of the square. We’ll go for phase two after retrieval,” Odira said. “In and out. I don’t want you within fifty feet of him when the bullet hits.”
Sera cleared her throat. “Keys and wallet are in his right coat pocket. Sixty seconds and counting. He’s following his normal route. Looks stressed. Won’t be for much longer though.”
She laughed. No one joined her, but no one told her to stop, either.
After a lifelong obsession with books, Erica Cameron spent her college years getting credit for reading and learning how to make stories of her own. Erica graduated with a double major in psychology and creative writing from Florida State University and began pursuing a career as an author.
Erica is many things but most notably the following: writer, reader, editor, dance fan, choreographer, singer, lover of musical theater, movie obsessed, sucker for romance, ex-Florida resident, and quasi-recluse. She loves the beach but hates the heat, has equal passion for the art of Salvador Dali and Venetian Carnival masks, has a penchant for unique jewelry and sun/moon décor pieces, and a desire to travel the entire world on a cruise ship. Or a private yacht. You know, whatever works.
