I wondered what crime a professional killer could commit that his closest friends would find unforgivable.
It is the mid 1980’s and Barbara Kemp shatters another glass ceiling as she becomes the US babysitter for Charlemagne, the premier freelance specialist team used by western governments for black operations conducted without fingerprints. She arrives in-country for her first assignment in support of an allied government. An American is being used as bait to lure a deep cover IRA explosives expert into the light where Charlemagne will eliminate him — if they do not annihilate each other first. Barbara must deal with a mystifying lunacy in the dangerous men around her while she struggles to find a way to save the American bait, the operation, and the team itself.
Lion Tamer is the fourth book in K.A. Bachus’s unflinching Charlemagne Files series. Will this promotion be the end of Barbara’s career? Or the end of her life?
