Older women often feel invisible, but sometimes that's their secret weapon.
Billie, Mary Alice, Helen and Natalie have worked for the Museum, an elite network of assassins, for forty years. But now their talents are considered old-school and no one appreciates their real-world resourcefulness in an age of technology.
When the foursome is sent on an all-expenses-paid trip 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 realise they've been marked for death.
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.
This is a book that steps away from the norm, not young women taking centre stage but these ladies could be your grandmother as Deanna Raybourn flips the general perception of the typical assassin.
The novel follows four whip-smart female assassins as they battle for their very survival against their former paymasters who now see them as an embarrassing reminder. These ladies will need to overcome hot flushes and push the ravages of time to one side and rekindle their former lethal skills to survive.
A stunning retake on the world of the secret agent, packed with drama, united by friendship and the will to survive, interspaced by moments of humour and loyalty. Read & Enjoy this is a great book by a great author. FemaleFirst
