A former assassin is drawn into the twisted game of a serial killer who may be a grisly remnant from her past.
Determined to leave her old life behind, retired assassin Leine Basso accepts a job working security at one of television's most popular reality shows, Serial Date. When a contestant is found dead in the prop closet, it appears the killer is one of the 'bachelors' on the show- an ex-con billed as a serial killer- but the detective in charge of the case isn't so sure.
When Leine's estranged daughter is abducted by a man claiming to be the real killer, she's forced to rely on old skills to find her, and must come to terms with who she really is. She soon realizes the murderer may be a grisly remnant from her past and she'll need to use all of her cunning to stop him... and rescue her daughter.
"Serial Date was a surprisingly entertaining read with witty writing and dark humor. The author has a distinct style that is witty, smart, and darkly humorous. The prose is sharp and gritty...I highly recommend Serial Date to those who enjoy murder mysteries with a touch of satire." ~Seattle P.I.
"Now this, this is what thrillers are made of: grit, spunk, no-nonsense and 100% unputdownability....Quite simply: Brilliant." ~Cath 'n' Kindle Book Reviews

"Serial Date has everything a mystery/thriller needs to be successful, fast-paced and action packed, strong and memorable characters and a story that will grab you from beginning to end..." - Confessions of a Reader
"...Why should you read it? In a nutshell it's a fast-paced, non-linear story with some creepy elements mashed together with a splash of romance and dark humour. What's not to like?"-Indie eBooks
This is a fantastic book!! Leine Basso is my kind of character. Strong, capable of taking care of herself, yet knows when she needs help. The storyline was so intense that I had to take breaks. This is the kind of book I truly enjoy.
Good book. Pretty much all the characters are initially unlikable. As the story progresses and they become more human. There were some mistakes that I wouldn't expect a "seasoned killer" to make but not so bad I feel the need to rant. Would read other books in the series and by the author.
Good writing but detailed cannibalism.
Very stomach turning with the details. Yuck.
