Protect the innocent. If there is any one principle that drives hit man Nadia Stafford, it’s this. In her own mind, when she was thirteen, she failed to protect her older cousin Amy from being murdered. Now she fails again, disastrously, when she botches a hit. To help her find her equilibrium, her mentor, Jack, brings her a gift: the location and new identity of the predator who killed her cousin and disappeared after the case against him failed.
Vengeance, justice? With the predator in her sights, nothing seems more right, more straightforward, more easy. But finding justice is never as simple as it seems.
Life is good for lodge owner and sometime hitwoman Nadia Stafford — a couple of dogs, a job she takes satisfaction in and the man she loves at her side as they literally build a home together. It's as close to normal as a pair of contract killers can get.
Jack knows that sometimes being very, very good at what you do can be very, very bad — for those around him. He's gone to great lengths to keep his past from catching up with Nadia. He also knows it's only a matter of time …
Jack is halfway around the world when the trap is triggered. They're coming for Nadia. And he has no way to warn her.
My first review of Wild Justice, Double Play
Yeah, I just had to reread these books! It's been so long since I read Wild Justice, and Double Play is a short story, so really easy to just read! Plus, more time with Nadia and Jack as a couple, which is always appreciated!
Watching Nadia and Jack finally get together, there's really no words to describe it! While it may not be the longest wait for characters to get together, there was this element of urgency, almost, because of how freaking badly we, I, wanted them to get together!
Both of these books have interesting mysteries. One deals with Nadia's past with her cousin, and they both have elements of Contrapasso, and the second one dealt with a favour that Jack ostensibly owed someone from his past.
Double Play is not the end of this series! Another novella is coming, and it's going to have the assassin character from the Casey Duncan series, which is really awesome! So yeah, I'm really excited for that and I can't wait for Perfect Victim!
Such great stories, just incredible, and I can't wait for more!
