For readers who have read Kelley Armstrong, I am sure you are familiarised with her Otherworld series. But do you know that she is also writing a completely new genre? Crime thriller, that's what. I'm so excited about it. I love reading stories about strong heroines, no matter if they are assassins or policewomen.

In this case, Kelley delivers a great new voice in Exit Strategy, where we get to meet the protagonist, Nadia Stafford as the female assassin. Or to be exact, she's a contract killer, and she does her 'assignments' for a Mafia family. Actually, Nadia isn't really borne to be a killer, and she has the blood of a police's family. She used to be a former cop, but was out because of a scandal.

But when the Helter Skelter killer committed several murders and made to the news, her mentor, Jack approaches her and asks if she wants to take on this mission. They later find out that this killer is also formerly a hitman, and is now turning to a serial killer. Hence, it becomes a killer versus killer mission for them all. As Nadia plunges deep into the assignment, she doesn't know who to trust anymore.

I was completely engrossed in reading Exit Strategy due to the tight plot; and that Kelley is great in keeping up the suspense until the end. The protagonist is one tough heroine, and I like that about her. I understand from Kelley's website that there will be a second book after this.
