The Assassin’s Child (Department 89 #5)

There Are Some Secrets That Refuse To Die

She thought she had caged the beast. But it was merely biding its time.

For years, spy chief Major Sophie Decker has had to live with the memories of a terrible childhood in Communist East Germany, and an alcoholic Stasi father who sexually abused her. Those memories made her into the ruthless government agent she is today with no conscience, morals or qualms, working for the German state. The anger and the impotence she felt when she was younger is now driving her forward with a vengeance.

But on a mission to the German city of Weimar, suppressed memories start flooding back, and long-forgotten dark family secrets are about to rear their ugly head again. As Sophie Decker goes on the rampage to exact revenge and finally find out the truth, she ends up proving one thing.

The past never stays in the past. There are some secrets that refuse to die.

Praise for the prequel, “The Renegade Spy”.

“If Die Hard would have had a female lead, Decker would have been it”.

“Sophie Decker is my newest favorite heroine”.

“This book is the sort of book that is very difficult to put down once you start reading it”.
