Publisher Description

The Deathbrew Affair: Lethal Webs #1

He’s the King of Control Freaks. I'm the Queen of Winging It. Together we'll save the world... Unless we kill each other first.

I’m Casey Billings, an American operative in the London office of a covert, multinational agency. I’m working with an MI5 officer, Jack, Lord Bainbridge, to bring down a bioterrorist who plans to unleash a pandemic. We’re posing as newlyweds to infiltrate the community that’s a cover for the bioweapons operation. Unfortunately, we don’t play well together, and not only because of Jack’s distracting, off-the- scales hotness.

I grew up poor in a mill town, and he’s an aristocrat with more money than a third-world country. Besides that, I fly by the seat of my pants while Jack lives by his plans for every contingency and takes charge of everything. Including me. Or so he thinks.

Basically, we’d like to strangle each other. But we have a pandemic to stop first.

Then all bets are off.

Amazing Spy Romance for Adults

I loved this book! From the very first sentence, I was both drawn into the story and filled with a desire to get to know the main character. It was exciting to experience such an action-filled adventure through the eyes of a female operative. Northcott’s descriptions of the methods of engagement are given in such detail that the reader feels as if she is in the midst of it all. I was especially impressed with her knowledge of the weapons used and their potential impact and appropriateness of use in each instance.
I offer a word of caution to those who are generally not inclined to read books with R-rated sexuality and/or language. I tend to avoid those and I was unaware of its presence before I started reading. That being said, I feel the sexuality was appropriate for this story and was built up in a way that made it different from that in most books. I also have to admit I gave it a full pass because of how it was treated and so I wholeheartedly refer this book to adults despite those inclusions.
Reading it earlier this year, I was most surprised by the fact that it was published in 2017, not in 2020! One would think it had been pulled from the pages of early news about the current pandemic. I don’t know how Northcott could have been so prescient, but she was amazing in her telling of this story. If you only read one work of fiction this year, make “The Deathbrew Affair” the book you read. I, for one, am looking forward to the next installment.
