About Death of an Assassin


Technically, Layla hasn’t killed anyone. Ask the witnesses. It was a misstep here, a trip-and-fall there—accidents happen.

And Layla is paid very well to ensure that they do.

Her mother once traced their lineage back to ancient times. Go flip through The Odyssey. Some great-great-great grandmother is in there beckoning sailors to rocky deaths. For eons her kind has made it their business to bring hapless men to quick and messy ends. Layla can’t help it that Saint Roch City has job listings for someone who can cause blameless death. You go where the work is.
When the most difficult hit of her career goes sideways, Layla finds out that what she’s been told about her own history may not be so accurate. And there is no forgiveness in the business of assassinations. When you’re paid to kill someone, there better be a dead body.

A  signed copy will be delivered to the winning bidder after the release date, but in the meantime you can get Ian's eyes on your query.  He says: "My own experience is primarily fantasy, sci-fi in YA, NA, and above (age-wise), so that'd be the best match for me!"

This item will close on May 8, 2016, at 9:00 PM EST. Any bids placed after that time stamp will not be honored. Once the auction closes and payment from the highest bidder is confirmed, a request for a mailing address will be sent to the winner. Shipping will be to U.S. addresses only.
