The Assassin by Rachel Butler

Selena McCaffrey knows what it’s like to fight for your life, to hone your body until it’s sharp and to never let down your guard–for anyone. A beautiful artist with a dark, painful past, Selena also knows how to keep secrets. With a .40-caliber Smith & Wesson and a double-edged dagger packed in her bags, Selena is leaving Key West for the American heartland. She’s going to kill a man.

Fourteen years ago, a chance encounter plunged Selena into the grasp of a criminal mastermind, William Davis, who became her protector and twisted father-figure. Now William has ordered her to move in next door to a Tulsa cop investigating a triple homicide. A man of quiet strength, Detective Tony Ceola is closer than he knows to bringing down William’s criminal empire. But as Selena slowly gets to know her new neighbor, her past starts slipping away and a choice appears before her eyes: between the man who trapped her in a world of violence and lies–and another who can set her free.…If she doesn’t kill him first.

From the Paperback edition.

I liked this book a lot! The heroine was a unique, tough character, the story plausible, and the romantic tension was just right. The pacing was done deftly, too, or else I wouldn't have bought into this being a proper crime procedural. And it certainly feels like one. I can't wait for book three in this series. I applaud the courage of the author in her non-traditional heroine and reluctant cop-hero, and I'm quite eager to see what will happen to them next!

In Key West, artist Selina McCaffrey runs Island Dreams, an art gallery except when she is on assignment for her ¿Uncle¿ William Davis. Fourteen years ago William ¿helped¿ Selena with a problem involving a death and she would do anything for him now. William sends Selena to clean up a mess incriminatingly left behind by his assistant Damon Long. An irate Damon detests Selena who is treated more like William¿s family than a worker...................... Selena temporarily moves to Tulsa to live next door to Detective Tony ¿Chee¿ Ceola, who is putting together a case against William. Selena is to destroy the dossier and if necessary kill the cop. Damon hopes she will mess up though he admits she is a survivor. While a serial killer murdering the dregs of society leaves behind ¿repent¿ as his message diverts Tony¿s efforts to put away William, the detective and his assassin fall in love. Will Selena choose the man who gave her a lifeline when she was a drowning teen or the cop that offers her a lifetime of love?..................... The key to THE ASSASSIN is the believability of Selena as a fighter, a survivor, and a woman in love; the cast including Chee pale next to her. The story line grips the audience from the moment Selena shows her skills against a much heavier male opponent and never slows down until she must choose sides. Readers will wonder whether she will go with the father figure who ¿saved¿ her in the past or the hunk who offers her a warm enlightened future. Rachel Butler provides a gripping thriller that keeps her audience guessing which one Selena will select.................... Harriet Klausner
