Killers of a Certain Age by Deanna Raybourn

 

Older women often feel invisible, but sometimes that’s their secret weapon.

They’ve spent their lives as the deadliest assassins in a clandestine international organization, but now that they’re sixty years old, four women friends can’t just retire – it’s kill or be killed in this action-packed thriller.

Billie, Mary Alice, Helen, and Natalie have worked for the Museum, an elite network of assassins, for forty years. Now their talents are considered old-school and no one appreciates what they have to offer in an age that relies more on technology than people skills.

When the foursome is sent on an all-expenses paid vacation to mark their retirement, they are targeted by one of their own. Only the Board, the top-level members of the Museum, can order the termination of field agents, and the women realize they’ve been marked for death.

Now to get out alive they have to turn against their own organization, relying on experience and each other to get the job done, knowing that working together is the secret to their survival. They’re about to teach the Board what it really means to be a woman–and a killer–of a certain age.

 

review

 

This was a fun read. I liked how it went back and forth in time to help lay out the story.

It’s hard to not enjoy a group of sixty year old female assassins. I thought it was a unique idea and I haven’t really read anything similar. I don’t want to ruin any of the plot/mystery. I liked all the characters and I enjoyed that it took place in quite a few different places. I found the murders interesting. Not sure what that says about me, but there were some very different ways to kill that I wouldn’t have thought of. Overall, I loved the relationships with the women. They fought and were all so different. But the love and loyalty they had was obvious. I liked the side characters too.

I gave this book 4 stars.
