Baksheesh (Bribes)

Book 5 in the Spies Lie series

A covert operative is ready for a new life outside of international espionage. But her enemies are far from willing to let her live…

She’s run from more threats than she can remember. She spied for her country, but that led her to blackmail her president, to get the love of her life his freedom. But when he proposes, covert agent Cassandra Sashakovich is finally ready to settle down.

Unfortunately enemies from her past aren’t quite ready to let her walk away.

Old enemies—including a vengeful president—want her dead, and they’re willing to attack her loved ones, including her adopted teenage daughter, if that’s what it takes.

But when a world leader is assassinated and an arm dealer’s revenge threatens a global nuclear war, Cassandra and her security firm, The Swiftshadow Group, must defuse the threats and outmaneuver those who threaten not only her family, but her country as well.

More wild, violent adventures in the world of international espionage.
Kirkus Reviews

I felt riveted to and obsessed with all the people and their stories. The writing is electrifying in its intensity and you feel connected to all the characters as if you were in their story.
