Review - Kiss & Die by Lee Weeks

Kiss & DieKiss & Die by Lee Weeks

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Blurb From Goodreads

Ruby is looking for love, her target, adulterous businessmen. After picking them up in bars, she brutally tortures her victims before decapitating them. Meanwhile, Hong Kong detective Johnny Mann is still struggling to deal with his dead father's legacy of corruption and triad involvement. His nemesis CK Leung is determined to bring Johnny into the triad fold and has now deployed the most dangerous weapon, his beautiful but deadly daughter Victoria. Falling into a downward spiral, Johnny is on the verge of destroying everything he holds dear while Ruby continues her terrifying murder spree. Johnny needs to pull himself together fast, because Ruby is getting nearer, and is closing in for the kill.

My Review

Ruby is a ruthless killer, she targets businessmen and slowly takes them apart. Detective Mann has his own issues to deal with, his legacy of being the son of a Triad leader and the millions it brings with it. His team members don't know if they can trust him and now a young girl has been dismembered as part of a new wild gang initiation and Mann is on the case. If all that wasn't bad enough both the Triad leader and his daughter have their eye on Mann and more importantly his money and ties in their community. Can they persuade him to turn his back on the law and embrace his criminal ties?

What a fantastic read! From the first chapter, which by the way is one of the most graphic and brutal descriptions I have read in a long time. It really isn't for the light hearted and you will know if it is for you within two pages and you are flung in at the deep end.

The story pace is good, it starts fast and brutal and then slows just a bit but enough to keep you intrigued and turning the pages. There are lots of twists and turns, surprises and even a few O.M.G moments. I enjoyed it so much I went looking for more and found I have read the first book but not two and three so have now bought them and would have read them in sequence had I realized. Definitely not for those with weak stomachs or faint hearts, thrilling and packed full of action so 5/5 for me.
