Description

"Completely riveting. When I wasn't reading about Cordelia Black, I was thinking about her. Utterly obsessed and ready to support all of Cordelia's wrongs!"
—Jesse Q. Sutanto, bestselling author of Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers

"In her fierce and feminist debut, Emma C. Wells combines taut thriller plotting with sharp, sassy humor and introduces an indelible antiheroine I’d follow anywhere. Cordelia Black is the ultimate girl’s girl, and as far as I’m concerned, she’s done nothing wrong ever in her life. All hail the new queen of the 'Good for Her' genre!"
—Layne Fargo, author of They Never Learn

For readers of Finlay Donovan is Killing It and The Bandit Queens comes a bright and biting thriller following Cordelia Black, a best friend, a businesswoman, and, in her spare time, a killer of bad men.

Ask Cordelia Black why she did it. The answer will always be: He had it coming.

Cordelia Black loves exactly three things: Her chosen family, her hairdresser (worth every penny plus tip), and killing bad men.

By day she's an ambitious pharma rep with a flawless reputation and designer wardrobe. By night, she culls South Louisiana of unscrupulous men—monsters who think they've evaded justice, until they meet her. Sure, the evening news may have started throwing around phrases like "serial killer," but Cordelia knows that's absurd. She's not a killer, she is simply karma. And being karma requires complete and utter control.

But when Cordelia discovers a flaw in her perfectly designed system for eliminating monsters, pressure heightens. And it only intensifies when her best friend starts dating a man Cordelia isn't sure is a good person. Someone who might just unravel everything she has worked for.

Soon enough Cordelia has to come face to face with the choices she's made. The good, the bad, and the murderous. Both her family, and her freedom, depend on it.

Wow! Cannot believe this was a debut. This one is absolutely going to be a hit.
I'm obsessed with Cordelia Black and I was hooked immediately. It's a perfect female revenge story.
This woman could not have an ounce of good luck to save her life and the anxiety I felt had me stuck to
my Kindle just dying to see what happens next (pun not intended).
If you're into strong female leads and have an unhealthy love for Dexter, this is a must read.
This is up there with one of my favorite books this year so far and I cannot wait to recommend it to everyone.
Looking forward to more from this author. Thank you, Poisoned Pen Press for the widget!
