Philomene Doucette is a made-to-order assassin, and death never looked so good. Orphaned and brain-washed from the age of six, by Beau Dupree, a C.I.A spook, she is a beautiful, empty killing machine, fractured from systematic abuse. Philomene is preparing for her biggest mission to date: Kill Haruto Mori, leader of Japan's Onagowai clan. She is put under the charge of Tadakai, the son of Dupree's Yakuza associate. Despite being cautioned, Tadakai falls for the beautiful killer—and despite herself, she returns his love.
To conceal her true purpose, she is smuggled into Japan via the sex trade and given as a gift to Haruto. Philomene's mission, to kill Haruto, becomes an inner battle as she struggles to break free of her conditioning and the growing fondness she feels both for Haruto and his ever-present shadow, The Green-Eyed One. When there is an outside attempt on Haruto's life, Philomene begins to suspect there is more to the mission than had been revealed to her.

Beautiful Carnage by Monica L Patton
Great Read! This book was fascinating, it kept me in suspense. I couldn't wait to turn the page, to read what was happening to Phil (Sophie).
