An assassin for a super-secret government organization known only as the Agency, Leine is convinced that she’s doing what she’s good at, and is ridding the world of evil at the same time. Then, a supposedly routine job goes south and she’s ambushed and almost killed. She chalks it up to a glitch, but her partner/lover, Carlos, is convinced that their boss, Eric, is setting her up. She’s not convinced until Carlos goes missing and a bomb almost kills her on the next assignment Eric gives her.
A Killing Truth is the chilling prequel to D.V. Berkom’s Leine Basso thriller series. It introduces one of modern fiction’s deadliest heroes, filling in some of the blank spaces in Leine’s murky background, and at the same time, offering readers a generous helping of Berkom’s talent in weaving a fantastically twisted tale that will keep you perched on the edge of your seat.
As Shaft would say, “Leine Basso is one bad mother—” Get it today. You won’t regret it. I received an advanced review copy of this book from the author, but I also purchased it – talk about being an over-the-top fan. Oh yeah, and just so you know, I give it five stars.
