A Killing Truth: A Leine Basso Thriller

This past year, discouraged by the misogyny of the current administration, I have wanted to read more, spend time with and learn from, strong females.  I have never understood why so many women don’t like other women.  Some of us do not support our sisters and I don’t get it.  The older I have gotten, the more I want the love, the strength and the understanding from my sisters and the less tolerance I have for things such as misogyny, racism, antisemitism, xenophobia and all the other things that just mean hatred and fear in an ugly package.

That being said, someone recommended I try D.V. Berkom’s Leine Basso series.  A Killing Truth is the first one I’ve read and really enjoyed it. Leine is an assassin whose job it is to eliminate the terrorists.  She’s a total badass, like Xena in the 21st century.  Strong, smart, savvy and a crack shot, she goes after the bad guys without killing the innocent bystanders.  I had a very hard time putting the book down, I really did.  Plot twists, suspense and a great crime novel.  

The writing is very well done and articulate. The characters and dialogue are believable. The story was engrossing, like walking around the house with the book in your hand as you half heartedly prepare dinner kind of engrossing. I had fun reading the story and will definitely be reading more of Berkom’s books. Recommended!
