Killer Assignment



Front page news: Murder!

Journalist Katie Todd wanted her name as a byline on the front page, not in the obituaries. When an assignment goes very wrong, she finds herself pursued by ruthless kidnappers. Her only hope is the enigmatic and handsome Mark Armor. All clues point to him being the enemy of her enemy, but is he a friend—or something much more dangerous? Every move Mark makes to help Katie brings him closer to the life he left behind, but he can't say no to the beautiful writer. Will the secrets of his past put Katie in even more danger?

My Review:

This is the first book I've read written by Maggie K. Black, but it won't be my last! Gripping from the very first page, this author knows how to build spine-tingling suspense in tense, desperate scenes. And the pace doesn't let up! My heartbeat still hasn't settled back to normal yet!

A really appealing aspect of the Killer Assignment is that neither the hero or heroine are in any kind of law enforcement. That brought a fresh perspective to this thrilling suspense. Katie's journalism background gives her a gritty, never-say-die attitude and Mark's numerous ventures into third world countries to give aid has prepared him for the unexpected. They make an unbeatable team. And their rocky romance is just as thrilling as the suspense. Great read from a new-to-me author.
