Inside the halls of Osiris, the men and women who make the contract killing agency tick polish their weapons and hone their skills. But how did they start working for Nero and Lex in the first place, and when did they find out they were destined to kill people for a living? Before Frankie Fairholm let you into her crazy, dysfunctional world of murder for hire, the lives of these men and women were already in danger. Their training was put to the test alongside their morals. A troubled Catholic school girl with a penchant for murder, a naive con-woman in over her head, a driven socialite with a bad day that keeps getting worse, an assassin second-guessing his sworn oath... being a contract killer doesn’t mean you aren’t human, it just means your humanity is hard to find, and probably a bit tarnished.

Excerpt:

It was four in the morning; the garage was empty of people. I made my way to the back entrance, hoping I could escape down Flamingo Road toward the Rio.

I was almost to the exit when the headlights of a black SUV lit me up from behind. I turned my attention to the screeching brakes to make sure I wasn’t about to get run over. 

That’s when I was tackled from the side by what felt like a Mack truck. We both went flying; his hand grabbed onto my frilly pink dress and ripped a portion of the tulle. I rolled out of the way to get a better look at him.

Same guy from upstairs, I realized. He still had the gun in his hand, but he was a bit out of sorts.
The back door to the SUV opened up and another man emerged. I did a double take—he looked the same as the man in front of me.

Jesus Christ.
I didn’t have time for this.
