Joss Kurtis kills people for a living, and she is very dedicated to her work. She has structured her entire life around her job, marrying a man and having his children to establish a stable, Midwestern family facade to hide behind. When she isn’t working she’s Jocelyn Webb, a dedicated if detached mother whose job often takes her out of town. She works for an anonymous company, contacted only by a handler who provides the names and locations of her latest target. Old or young, male or female, she doesn’t discriminate. Her methods vary, but there is one constant: never get emotionally involved.

After her ninety-second kill, Joss is assigned an apprentice, a young woman who has been also been recruited as an assassin. She names the girl Echo rather than bothering to learn her true name and sets out to teach her the ropes of their chosen profession. Over the next few weeks Echo accompanies Joss on her jobs to get a first-hand look at the murder business.

To her surprise, Echo proves to be a natural at the job and Joss soon begins to develop feelings for her unwanted tagalong. As Echo’s tutelage nears its completion, Joss is forced to decide between the life she’s built and throwing everything away for something entirely alien to her: love.

I was sent this book by Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.
A truly dark, psychological and totally captivating novel. I had difficulty putting this book down until I reached the inevitable but unpredictable ending.
A real cutting-edge novel where the leading female is almost an anti hero. Really breaking new ground having such a cold dispassionate lead and her protégé being equally ruthless and hard hearted. Their growing attraction for each other only emphasised the cruelty and lack of empathy they displayed to everyone else.
I totally recommend this book if you are looking for something out of the ordinary, it is so well written and unique it holds your interest, even, if at times giving you moments of absolute disquiet.
The only reason I did not give 5 stars was because I felt Joss would not have allowed what happened at the end.
