Book Review: The Kill Shot by Nichole Christoff

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this book, free of charge, from Random House, via Netgalley, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it

In an explosive thriller for readers of Lee Child, Alex Berenson, and Brad Taylor, P.I. and security specialist Jamie Sinclair finds herself caught in a dangerous game of international cat-and-mouse.


Jamie Sinclair’s father has never asked her for a favor in her life. The former two-star general turned senator is more in the habit of giving his only child orders. So when he requests Jamie’s expertise as a security specialist, she can’t refuse—even though it means slamming the brakes on her burgeoning relationship with military police officer Adam Barrett. Just like that, Jamie hops aboard a flight to London with a U.S. State Department courier carrying a diplomatic pouch in an iron grip.
Jamie doesn’t have to wait long to put her unique skills to good use. When she and the courier are jumped by goons outside the Heathrow terminal, Jamie fights them off—but the incident puts her on high alert. Someone’s willing to kill for the contents of the bag. Then a would-be assassin opens fire in crowded Covent Garden, and Jamie is stunned to spot a familiar face: Adam Barrett, who saves her life with a single shot and calmly slips away. Jamie’s head—and her heart—tell her that something is very wrong. But she’s come way too far to turn back now.


This was such a page turner that I ended up reading it in one night! It really is the best mix of a thriller and mystery, with a VERY strong heroine, with just a touch of romance, to make it perfect! I had not read the first book in the series (the Kill List), but I am adding it to my Kindle app this weekend, as I want to read what happened with Jamie previous marriage, and  how she met Adam! Nichole gives you enough info, that you don't feel like you have to read the previous book, you will just WANT to when you finish this one! The book will have you guessing and double guessing yourself, as you try to unravel who is and isn't the proverbial 'bad guy'! The series would make a great TV series, and I hope producers are calling Nichole, as this one has success written all over it! So start your Spring off with a bang, and check out this book!
