…If a kickass middle-aged bookkeeper got sucked into a spy’s life…
Secret agent Aydan Kelly is hoping to resume her peaceful life as a bookkeeper, until her director issues an ultimatum: Go undercover as an arms dealer or go to jail for life. But when Aydan realizes her co-worker’s son has been taken by a serial killer, she defies orders in an attempt to save the child.
Neglecting her undercover assignment may cost more than just her freedom. When the gunrunner she’s been baiting threatens her loved ones, Aydan must choose between protecting them herself or entrusting their safety to geriatric amateur vigilantes while she closes in on the killer.
How much will she risk for a child who may already be dead?

Contains coarse language, moderate violence, and sexuality. The story can stand alone but will be more enjoyable if the series is read in order.
“Fierce and fantastic – a totally different type of heroine who keeps you clinging to the edge of your seat!”
"If Janet Evanovich’s quirky humour met Robert Ludlum’s taut thrillers, the Never Say Spy series would be their love child: racy, fun, and action-packed!"

About the Author
Before I started writing fiction, I had a checkered career: technical writer, computer geek, and interior designer. I’m good at two out of three of those. Fortunately, I had the sense to quit the one I sucked at (interior design).
When my mid-life crisis hit, I took up muay thai and started writing thrillers featuring a middle-aged female protagonist. (‘Walter Mitty’, you say? Nope, never heard of him.)
Writing and kicking the hell out of stuff seemed more productive than more typical mid-life-crisis activities like getting a divorce, buying a Harley Crossbones, and cruising across the country picking up men in sleazy bars; especially since it’s winter most months of the year here in Canada.
It’s much more comfortable to sit at my computer. And Harleys are expensive. Come to think of it, so are beer and gasoline.
Oh, and I still love my husband. There’s that. So I stuck with the writing.
(And, for the record, no, I’m not actually my protagonist, Aydan Kelly.)

Here’s my “professional” bio, in case you need something more suitable for mixed company:
Diane Henders is the Kindle bestselling author of the NEVER SAY SPY series: Sexy techno-thrillers packed with tension, laughs, profanity, and sometimes warm fuzzies. The first book in the series, NEVER SAY SPY, has had over 450,000 downloads to date, and stayed on Kindle’s ‘Women Sleuths’ Top 100 list for 60 consecutive months.
Diane enjoys target shooting, gardening, auto mechanics, painting (art, not walls), music, and martial arts; and loves food and drink almost as much as she loves her husband. They live in the wilds of British Columbia, Canada, where they get all the adrenaline rush they could ever want by growing fruit trees in bear country.
