The eighth hotly anticipated book in the Elemental Assassin series by New York Times best-selling author Jennifer Estep. It’s Gin Blanco´s party - and you’ll cry if she wants you to. Against her better judgment, Gin is coerced into attending a high-society gala with the rest of Ashland´s elite underworld. On display: the priceless art collection of her deceased nemesis, Mab Monroe, and an excess of crime-boss swagger. While not comfortable in her fancy attire, Gin gets vastly more interested in the evening’s events when a group of thieves bursts in and tries to seize the valuable, dangerous gems. Facing a Die Hard-esque scenario in which she must free hostage partygoers while herself trapped in the museum, things get a little bit messy when the bloodshed begins. Let´s just say that Gin should have chosen the red gown.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lauren Fortgang. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/010683/bk_adbl_010683_sample.mp3.

After the shocking revelations of the previous book, Bitter Bite, the world of Ashland´s become even more sinister, and Gin Blanco (aka Ashland´s most fearsome assassin, the Spider) no longer knows whom - or what - she can count on. Only one thing is for certain: Danger and new enemies await Gin in Unraveled, book 15 in the New York Times best-selling Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series that RT Book Reviews calls ´´unbeatable entertainment!´´ What could go wrong when you´re trying to unravel a decades-old conspiracy? As the current queen of the Ashland underworld, you would think that I, Gin Blanco, would know all about some secret society controlling things from behind the scenes. I might be the Spider, the city´s most fearsome assassin, but all my Ice and Stone elemental magic hasn´t done me a lick of good in learning more about the Circle. Despite my continued investigations, the trail´s gone as cold as the coming winter. So when Finnegan Lane, my foster brother, gets word of a surprising inheritance, we figure, why not skip town for someplace less dangerous for a few days? That place: Bullet Pointe, a fancy hotel resort complex plus Old West theme park that Finn now owns lock, stock, and barrel. At first all the struttin´ cowboys and sassy saloon girls are just hokey fun. But add in some shady coincidences and Circle assassins lurking all around, and vacationing becomes wilder - and deadlier - than any of us expected. Good thing this assassin brought plenty of knives to the gunfight.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lauren Fortgang.
