Older women often feel invisible, but sometimes that's their secret weapon.
They've spent their lives as the deadliest assassins in a clandestine international organization, but now that they're sixty years old, four women friends can't just retire - it's kill or be killed in this action-packed thriller.
Billie, Mary Alice, Helen, and Natalie have worked for the Museum, an elite network of assassins, for forty years. Now their talents are considered old-school and no one appreciates what they have to offer in an age that relies more on technology than people skills.
When the foursome is sent on an all-expenses paid vacation to mark their retirement, they are targeted by one of their own. Only the Board, the top-level members of the Museum, can order the termination of field agents, and the women realize they've been marked for death.
Now to get out alive they have to turn against their own organization, relying on experience and each other to get the job done, knowing that working together is the secret to their survival. They're about to teach the Board what it really means to be a woman--and a killer--of a certain age.

Killers of a Certain Age wasn’t exactly what I expected. I kind of expected a female version of the movie Red, with all the retired killers. And it has that sort of initial vibe, but it really is a crime thriller! It isn’t funny like Red, so if that is what you want, keep moving.

But, I do love the kick butt mature women who have a wonderful friendship. This is a solid relationship between these women that is powerful and uplifting. They just wanted to retire and they can’t even do that! They are determine to figure out who wants them dead and put a stop to it. The story is full of danger and mystery, but also the development of strong, resilient females. While this book wasn’t exactly what I expected, it also was exactly what I expected. The timeline bounces and that really worked for the story as well.

authors like Richard Osman, AM Stuart, CJ Archer…then you will probably like Killers of a Certain Age!
