"She is a woman of a thousand faces, an assassin who could be anyone, anywhere. The Trinidad contract was supposed to be simple: to make a living man become a dead man. When the job goes bad under the watchful eye of a bank security camera, there is nowhere for agent MX-401, known as Reaper, to hide from the fearsome local warlords, the Laventille Killers. Her employers, the Barbarians, send her to Barbados, the next island over, barely two hundred miles away, with the LK's in hot pursuit of the woman who took many of their own. With the scant protection of a dank safe house, no passport, and no access to funds, an island paradise becomes her prison. While she trawls for low-profile assignments to keep her skills sharp and a few dollars in her pocket, Reaper discovers that family ties run deep, on both sides of the fight. Will the woman everyone wants, who has lived countless lives in the service of others, finally discover who she really is?" -- from publisher's web site.

An action video game for sex starved teens searching for gore. Quentin Tarantino might go for it.

I agree with MaryMaryJ, Columbiana was my first thought also. I Really enjoyed this one although I didn't really care for the other assassin series. I may have a morbid sense of humour but I laughed out loud on the bus many a time.

I like the assassin genre and had looked forward to this one. Unfortunately, the writing style was too distracting for me. There was no variety to the clipped sentences. I couldn't make it past chapter 2.

Lots of action. Strong female protagonist. Vivid and brutal scenes throughout.

Dickey has written this for the movies and a sequel. It is reminiscent of the character in the movie Columbiana... Its a thriller and entertaining but felt something was lacking...

The lady in this book is my new personal hero she is bad bitch all around. This was such a wonderful book it's crazy how dickey almost writes as if he has created a poem, everything just flows right together and makes you want to finish even the longest of books in one sitting. This is now my all time favorite and i totally thought after the sleeping with strangers series there wouldnt be a better book.
