This story is such a fun, suspenseful read! I loved the back-and-forth timelines, getting glimpses of what it was like for these assassins both now and when they were in their prime. The story centers primarily around Billie, as well as her sister-assassins Natalie, Mary Alice, and Helen. When they realize their retirement cruise may be more than meets the eye (and not in a good way), they set out to complete one last job … and save themselves.
I won’t say more because I don’t want to spoil the fun, but this was a nice change of pace for me and such an engaging read.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Older women often feel invisible, but sometimes that’s their secret weapon.
They’ve spent their lives as the deadliest assassins in a clandestine international organization, but now that they’re sixty years old, four women friends can’t just retire – it’s kill or be killed in this action-packed thriller.
Billie, Mary Alice, Helen, and Natalie have worked for the Museum, an elite network of assassins, for forty years. Now their talents are considered old-school and no one appreciates what they have to offer in an age that relies more on technology than people skills.
When the foursome is sent on an all-expenses paid vacation to mark their retirement, they are targeted by one of their own. Only the Board, the top-level members of the Museum, can order the termination of field agents, and the women realize they’ve been marked for death.
Now to get out alive they have to turn against their own organization, relying on experience and each other to get the job done, knowing that working together is the secret to their survival. They’re about to teach the Board what it really means to be a woman–and a killer–of a certain age.
