Death Angel by Linda Howard
July 14, 2008 - Amy Phelps
June is the official start of summer, so I'm kicking off the season with a new book a week that you should be sticking in a beach bag to take on vacation, or just relaxing with in the backyard along with a glass of sweet tea.
This week's is a mystery/thriller offering. Be sure to check back every Monday for a new book for adults or teenagers!
New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard returns with "Death Angel," combining a bit of mystery with romance and action-adventure in a book of bad guys and girls finding a second chance at life.
Drea Rousseau has fashioned herself into an entirely different person - that of Rafael Salinas, noted crime lordás, mistress and eye candy. Drea's enjoying the high life while still being very careful of her boyfriend, for she knows one false move and she will disappear forever, that is, until the day the assassin shows up.
The assassin wants to broker a deal with Rafael - for Drea. She firmly expects him to refuse, and when he doesnát, finds herself the property of the assassin for one day. But little does she know that the assassin will do something unexpected - steal her heart. When Rafael comes back, Drea wants out, and puts into place the contingency plan sheás has waiting for years - stealing millions from Rafael and disappearing from both him and the assassin. Rafael hires the assassin to find her and get back his money, and Drea knows there is no escape, and isnát sure if she wants to.
Then an accident changes both her life and the assassinás forever. Who will they be on the other side of tragedy?
A darkly romantic book of second chances and intrigue, as well as hot assassins, this book will appeal to the romantic suspense fan.
"Death Angel" is published by Ballentine. It is $26 and 341 pages long.
