About the book:

Acapulco 1974: Rina Walker is on assignment. Just another another quick, clean kill.
She wakes to discover her employer’s severed head on her bedside table, and a man with an AK 47 coming through the door of her hotel room. She needs all her skills to neutralise her attacker and escape. After a car chase, she is captured by a Mexican drug boss who needs her radiant beauty and ruthless expertise to eliminate an inconvenient member of the government.

Notting Hill 1956: Fifteen-year-old Rina is scavenging and stealing to support her siblings and her alcoholic mother. When a local gangster attacks her younger sister, Rina wreaks revenge and kills him. Innocence betrayed, Rina faces the brutality of the post-war London underworld – a world that teaches her the skill to kill…

I have so many mixed emotions about this book. One minute i loved it the next minute it slowed down and i was beginning to see myself becoming bored. But their were so many points in the book which left me gripped. The story follows Rina through her childhood in London to the excitement of mexico. The character portrayal in this story was brilliantly put across. The only down side to this story was some parts leaving me bored, but overall this was a well written piece of fiction. I would defiantly recommend this book. I will be reviewing the follow up to this story “threat” in June 2017.
