Lethal, sexy, and always ready to protect her friends, Gin Blanco (a.k.a. the Spider) takes on the mysterious M.M. Monroe in book twelve of the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series.

There's nothing worse than a cruel, cunning enemy with time to kill--and my murder to plan. With wicked Fire elemental Mab Monroe long gone, you'd think I could finally catch a break. But someone's always trying to take me down, either as Gin Blanco or my assassin alter-ago. Now along comes the Spider's new arch-nemesis, the mysteriously named M. M. Monroe, who is gleefully working overtime to trap me in a sticky web of deceit.

The thing is, I'm not the only target. I can see through the tangled threads enough to know that every bit of bad luck my friends have been having lately is no accident--and that each unfortunate "coincidence" is just one more arrow drawing ever closer to hitting the real bull's-eye. Though new to Ashland, this M. M. Monroe is no stranger to irony, trying to get me, an assassin, framed for murder. Yet, as my enemy's master plan is slowly revealed, I have a sinking feeling that it will take more than my powerful Ice and Stone magic to stop my whole life from going up in flames.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Filled with death-defying feats and sweeping emotions, Estep's 12th Elemental Assassin contemporary paranormal (after Poison Promise) is one of the strongest to date. Gin Blanco's life as a full-time BBQ restaurant owner in the fictional Southern city of Ashland and part-time master assassin has always been anything but peaceful-and Madeline Magda Monroe coming to town will really shake things up. Madeline, the daughter of crime queen Mab Monroe, is taking aim at everything and everyone Gin holds dear. She plans to make Gin pay dearly for killing Mab-or is there another, deeper reason for her vindictive behavior? A zippy plot is enhanced by solid action scenes that build to a blistering crescendo, though seemingly invulnerable Gin never shows a hint of fear. Familiar faces and new characters bolster a plot that's certain to captivate new and returning readers alike. Agent: Annelise Robey, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Dec.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
