Locked Room

Locked Room - A Katla KillFile (Amsterdam Assassin Series) - Martyn V. Halm

The Katla KillFiles are brief stories that take place before the events in the Amsterdam Assassin series. If you like badass assassins, perfect crimes, and European settings, this is a perfect introduction. 

In this assignment, Katla Sieltjes is a freelance contract killer hired to discreetly kill a physician for medical negligence involving her client’s wife.

This story hooked me right from the beginning. I loved Katla’s methodical planning, familiarity with technology, and her agility. Now I know what a karambit knife is. She’s very clever, cold and calculating and I sure don’t ever want to be on her bad side.

While I loved the character development, I also loved the tension and details in this story that lend authenticity. 

I'm very curious about Katla's life, how she got to where she is, and how she keeps her personal life separate from work. 

Ignore the low ratings for this story and just take my word for it. It’s a lot of fun and free right now on Amazon.
