Assassin Katla finds a devious way to get a target to poison himself…
The Aconite Attack KillFile (10,700 words) follows Katla Sieltjes on her first foray as a freelance assassin and corporate troubleshooter, when she gets herself hired by the CEO of a modelling agency to permanently remove his playboy partner, who is quickly draining the firm’s resources on his downward spiral into self-destruction. Katla finds a way to administer poison to the target, but he has to be isolated for her plan to succeed. Every plan has a fluke factor though, and Katla soon finds herself in a struggle for life and death, when the target reveals his darker side…
The Katla KillFile short stories chronologically precede the novels in the Amsterdam Assassin Series.
Each KillFile features Katla Sieltjes, expert in disguising homicide, executing one of her contracts. While not mandatory reading, each KillFile provides insight both in Katla’s work methods and skill, and additional background information in her character and personal history. The KillFiles can be read out of order, as the contracts are random samples from Katla’s past.

The author puts a great deal of himself into these books. You really feel like you are in Amsterdam when you read his books. It really makes me appreciate the level of research he puts into them. Besides that he has created main character which is somehow a moral and also Likable. I am sorry Mr. Halm, but I must make the comparison: The books feel very much like the Dragon tattoo series. I mean this in a complement in that they completely bring me to the location and hold me there. These are the books I read where I need to skip out of my daily life for 15 or 20 minutes, and it usually turns into an hour.
