Publisher's Summary

Regulars at Nadia’s nature lodge don’t ask what she does in the off-season. And that’s a good thing. If she told them, she’d have to kill them. She’s a hit woman for a Mafia family. Tough and self-sufficient, Nadia doesn’t owe anyone any explanations. But that doesn’t mean she always works alone. One of her contacts has recruited her in the hunt for a ruthlessly efficient serial killer cutting a swath of terror across the country. The assassin is far too skilled to be an amateur - and the precision of the killings is bringing the Feds much too close to the hit man community for comfort. To put an end to the murders, Nadia will have to turn herself from predator to prey as she employs every trick she knows to find the killer. Before the killer finds her….

Would you consider the audio edition of Exit Strategy to be better than the print version?

Jennifer Ikeda does such an outstanding job on this that I can't imagine it without her voice. She does everyone so well, including the male characters, that I'm searching for more of her work.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Exit Strategy?

When Jack makes Nadia hot chocolate.

What does Jennifer Ikeda and Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She's the perfect voice for Nadia, helping you get into the complicated heart and soul and mind of a contract killer, plus her Irish brogue for Jack is downright sexy.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The scene when Jack's leaning over her and she begins to realize she's attracted to him. Plus the scene in the closet.

Any additional comments?

This is violent, fascinating, angst, funny, and the romance is so subtle it's deliciously addictive. Jennifer Ikeda does a great job of bringing out out a wonderful story, and Richard Ferrone's villain and victim POV are excellent as well.

- Anne Stuart "NYT writer of romantic suspense with a serious addiction to audiobooks."

some strong elements, but....

In the beginning I was thinking I'd found a great new author for my collection. A strong main character and a good plot line in the first few chapters soon devolved into an overly detailed mess. The constant back and forth inside the mind of the female protagonist soon became tiring. As did the moody non-communicative 'mentor' Jack. The protagonists patience with and submission to this character became tiresome as well. If three or four hours had been eliminated from this selection this might have been an excellent listen. As it was, it became a tiresome slog through the underbelly of criminal society. Ms. Armstrong is a talented writer and the book was well narrated. Hopefully her next mystery book will avoid the short comings of Exit Strategy.
