Book description:

 Meet Sarah Killian, a professional serial killer (for hire!) with a twisted sense of humor.

Sarah Killian is not your average thirty year-old single woman. Foul-mouthed, mean-spirited, and a text-book-case loner. Also, she is a Professional Serial Killer.

In this Crime Fiction / Thriller novel with a twisted sense of humor, Sarah works for T.H.E.M. (Trusted Hierarchy of Everyday Murderers), a secret organization of murderers for hire headed up by the mysterious Zeke. You’ll be surprised to learn who their biggest clients are. Conspiracy theories, anyone?

But a wrench is thrown into the clockwork of Sarah's comfortable lifestyle when, on her latest assignment, she is forced to take on an apprentice, Bethany—a bubbly, perky, blonde with a severe case of verbal-vomit. In short, Bethany is everything Sarah is not.

Will Sarah be able to adjust and work with her new apprentice, or will she break her contract with T.H.E.M. and murder the buxom bimbo?

So if you’re looking for a strong female lead that doesn’t care what you think, in a book similar to the best of Dean Koontz and J.A. Konrath, then look no further than Sarah Killian – Serial Killer (For Hire).

Just don’t call her an ‘assassin.’ You might not live long enough to regret it.

A truly delightful somewhat-extreme horror story, released July 29, 2016, this novel relates in first person narrative the life and times of one Sarah Killian, not a woman you'd want for your best friend, but definitely individual-with-purpose. Once upon a time, beginning at age sixteen [and I think there is much more to that than meets the eye, or in this case, the page] Sarah turned the harsh lessons of life to use, and became a killer. More accurately, she started on a path of serial killing, until in her early 20's, she was recruited by the shadowy organization [layers upon layers, and who among them knows the entire and actual truth] known as T.H.E.M. Trained by this organization as a Professional Serial Killer [NOT assassin, as Sarah will insist], she is sent out as a contract killer, but rather than being say, a sniper, she frameworks each killing to appear to be that of a serial killer, and especially of the individual chosen to be a "Herring" [as in the "red herring" of the mystery genre.

I so enjoyed this story that I hope Sarah will be a series. Yes, there is gore, there is violence, there's even references to intimacy, but you don't have to worry about being overburdened with emotions. Sociopath Sarah gets along just fine without them [except for rage and vengeance, qualities she possesses in abundance!]

Any book that starts out with one (of many) of my favorite lines from my favorite movies, has me hooked. To my surprised delight, it got better from there.

I know I haven't laughed out loud in a serial killer as much as I did here. My enjoyment of this book is what took so long for me to read it. Truly. I savored every word.

If you can take some pretty gruesome killings - not that the victims didn't deserve it - with one of the funniest book in the genre, this book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I seriously hope Mr. Sheldon is furiously writing the sequel.

I want to give a shout out to Crystal Lake Publishing, for recommending great books such as this to its devoted readers. Thanks!
