In the twisted mind of a clever killer, her intelligence makes her a prize worth taking. By whatever means.
Matthew Smart has lost his Assistant, Cameron, in a brutal killing. Devastated, Matthew has to find out who murdered his employee while interviewing potential replacements. Strangely, the applicants all seem to be blowing off their interviews. So when a bold, softly curved beauty named Alexis McFadden shows up in his office looking to fill the position, he’s tempted to hire her just because she’s the only one who wants the job, although he doesn’t believe she’s a good fit. Lucky for Alex, a tricky new case convinces Matthew that he can really use her help. But what if Alex is smart enough to get herself hired against all odds, while in the eyes of a cold-blooded killer, she’s too smart by half?

Great smart read
“ He laughed. ‘I knew you were going to be a challenge. I’m pleased to realize I was right”
Matthew “don’t call me Matt”Smart runs Smart Investigations with his dachshund Max, whom he jokingly tells people is “the head of HR”. The story opened with Matthew finding his assistant Cameron murdered in their office. While he interviews replacements, he keeps trying to figure out why anyone would kill Cam.
Some of the string of applicants are no shows, until the final one, Alexis McFaddon shows up unexpectedly as a new client hires Smart to find out why his daughter was killed by a hit and run. Through a series of synchronized incidents both Matthew and Alex come very close to being the killer’s next victims.
This was a very fast read, and a very good read; just enough sass and smarts to keep the reader entertained. It was difficult not to read the whole book in one sitting. And now I’m more than ready for the next one. Highly Recommended 5/5
