5.0 out of 5 stars Mercenary Justice, 22 Dec 2013
This review is from: Exit Strategy: Number 1 in series (Nadia Stafford) (Paperback)
Nadia Stafford has a curious relationship with justice. As a former police woman, she's had to uphold the law, but years of seeing criminals evade punishment have left her feeling bitter, and resentful. That is until a particularly difficult case prompts her to take justice into her own hands, a decision that ultimately sees her discharged from law enforcement altogether.

Now she has a new life. She's the proud owner of a country lodge, and nature preserve. But upkeep isn't cheap, so Nadia supplements her income with a little side-business. One in which she's a hitman for hire, working for the mob. It's not the life she imagined for herself, but it's life on her own terms.

There isn't much that could lure Nadia out of the comfortable niche she's carved out for herself. But when she's offered an opportunity to team up with Jack, her enigmatic mentor, and hunt down and kill a serial killer, she can't turn it down.

In pursuit of their prey, Jack and Nadia become masters of disguise, infiltrating casinos, mingling with the Russian mafia, and taking in a little opera. But will they be able to find the killer before he claims his next victim? Will Nadia's personal demons get the better of her? And is Jack someone she can ever really trust? These questions, and their subsequent answers add satisfying depth to an already clever mystery.

In Nadia Stafford, Kelley Armstrong has created a very interesting character. One who is as vulnerable on the inside, as she is cold on the outside. Jack is her perfect counterpoint, and readers will be tempted to wonder if their relationship is doomed to remain professional, or if it could grow into something more. A great, and absorbing read that left me hungry for more.
