Publisher Description

Killers aren’t born, they’re made. And she’s out to meet her maker.

    “Fabulous story arcs, pulse-pounding action, an amazing female vigilante, exciting travelogues... All come together in this series.” N. Gillet 

A rogue assassin, Tess Williams prowls the city’s shadows, preying on killers, pimps, gangbangers, rapists… the monsters that ruin lives. Haunted by a tragic past, she’ll risk everything to protect the innocent and avenge the dead. 


    “Another cracking instalment of the series. It just gets better and better.” P. Flanders

When Tess was a little girl, a stranger ripped her world apart and ruined her life. Today, she finally gets a lead on him.

Unfortunately, that stranger is now a feared crime boss, guarded by brutal mobsters, hired thugs, and ruthless assassins. Outnumbered and outgunned, Tess knows this will be the job that ends her, but she doesn’t care as long as she nails her target first. But how can she do that alone?

The answer comes from someone she knows. Someone she fears. Someone she can’t trust.


    “I love Tess, she is such a strong character and yet vulnerable, too. Her sense of honour is magnificent.” Julie Elizabeth Powell

Discover where Tess’s story begins…

When a family is attacked by a vicious gang, Tess creates carnage on Shanghai’s streets. But when she thinks it’s all over, she discovers the longest day of her life has only just begun – she’s thrust into a face-off with the elite of China’s underworld.

Trapped in a deadly game, where deceit is as lethal as the bullets tearing at her, Tess must take one enormous gamble. If she loses, everyone dies; if she wins, only she does.


    “WOW!! Mr Lee you have excelled yourself once again. Absolutely loved it!” Karen Bryan

An old adversary is back. Someone who Tess thought she’d killed. Riddled with guilt over failing to have stopped this monster, Tess storms through the city, plunging into one life-threatening fight after another.

Battling an injury, Tess isn’t the killing machine she once was, but she can’t stop – she has to bury this killer because she’s to blame for the rising body count.

Then a mistake slams her into a life-or-death struggle she didn’t see coming. Will this be the end for Tess?


You can get Black Files 7, 8, and 9 through this book as my gift (see the Table of Contents for details).


This series is gritty, dark crime fiction, not Miss Marple, so expect some violence, occasional strong language, and every so often, a scene of a sexual nature.

If you love female assassins, love action-packed mystery and suspense, love a dark hero battling overwhelming odds in the name of true justice, you MUST READ this series! 

Discover why this blazing hot series is loved by fans of Lee Child, Stieg Larsson, Vince Flynn, John Sandford, and David Baldacci, and anyone who loves fast-paced plots with Jack Reacher-style action.
