She goes where the law won't. Does what the law can't. She hunts murderers, rapists, gangbangers, pimps...
She is Tess Williams: Judge, Jury, Executioner.

"Fast-paced and action-packed, it takes you on a ride you don't want to stop!" 5 stars, J. Alexander

Essential reading for fans of Lee Child, Stieg Larsson, Vince Flynn, John Sandford, David Baldacci, James Patterson... anyone who loves lightning-paced plots with Jack Reacher-style action.

When a young woman goes missing under mysterious circumstances in Eastern Europe, her desperate mother begs ex-assassin Tess Williams for help. Tess is haunted by her own tragic past, so is reluctant to be dragged into someone else's nightmare, but the old lady's tale is too heartbreaking to ignore.

Tess's investigation hits a brick wall, until an unlikely witness reveals the horrifying truth – the woman isn't just missing, but has been abducted by a gang of bloodthirsty psychos who'll butcher anyone who gets in their way. Knife-wielding gangsters, brutal thugs, and a man as lethal as he is charming all stand between Tess and the woman. These monsters believe they're unstoppable. And they might be.

Outnumbered and outgunned, Tess is thrust into a race-against-time to rescue the woman. But after she claws her way closer and closer to victory, it's snatched from her at the very last moment. As all hope dies, Tess is forced to consider that the woman could be lost forever. And that this gang really is unstoppable. With time running out and the body count rising, Tess must face one terrifying question – what price is she prepared to pay to put these monsters down for good?

"Fast paced thriller with suspense packed onto every page 5 Stars This Arthur seems headed for stardom I expect one of his books will become a movie. His characters are taken right off the streets of the present day world and come to full life right before your eyes. I started this book in the early evening and finished in time to see a beautiful sunrise. I feel it was worth the loss of sleep as I just could not lay it sown until the last page. again this is a 5STAR book

Haven't we all wanted to met out vengeance on those who harm us or that we see causing harm in the world? Realistic tech and behavior by this strong female lead and her remote assistant. I did not want to stop reading and I didn't until I was done. I immediately made sure I had book 2 in my reading queue.

I loved the characters —-they were so believable, and the hints of sarcasm were a plus. The suspense kept building and I actually was surprised at the end! This author knows how to keep the reader engaged and not want to put the book down,!

A quick but intense read. A strong narrative and characters, a good helping of intrigue and tension. An enjoyable read, but felt we've only just glimpsed the very tip of the iceberg that is the main character, Tess and I was left wanting a little more. Tess is an interesting character. Rather want to know what prompted her long sojourn of a decade learning to fight, meditate and be ready for whatever the revenge she had planned was about. Elena was a very strong character and almost stole the show from Tess. Whilst the plot was fast-paced, it was also refreshing to see that Tess, the one-woman army wasn't totally omnipotent and doesn't always succeed in her endeavours. That lent a touch of welcome realism to an intriguing and somewhat violent storyline.

A "crimmy" you'll find hard to put down; great plot, convoluted characters, and all-in-all, an easy read.

A great starting sentence sets off this novel, leaving the reader thoroughly unsettled as a young woman faces her worst fears. Cool metaphors bring the reader closer to Cat, making her sudden departure from the story all the more disturbing. But the echo of Cat will reach a remarkable protagonist, setting off a fast-paced chain of events, lots of graphic violence, introspective recollection of a backstory not yet revealed, and appropriately inappropriate language. There are some surprising smiles in among the violence of this tale. Cat’s mother Elena declares “I’m sick, not old” and sets to work with a laptop. Bad guys get what’s coming to them. And Tess, the ever surprising protagonist, reveals just enough hints of her past to make her present work. Like a female Batman, she’s learned great skills, but she isn’t a killer, rather “a woman doing what was right for no other reason than because she could.” Action-packed, dark, hard-boiled, and with the promise of more, Kill Switch is a violent novel that doesn’t glorify pain, a dark novel unafraid to look into the darkest places where a woman can be lost, and a pleasingly complete story with the promise of more to come. Disclosure: I was given a copy and I offer my honest review

I had an excellent time reading this book! I love Tess! The action does not stop, and the end leaves you hungry for more. Too bad the series is not available for Nook, or I would read the rest of the books. You won't regret starting this one!
