From publisher blurb:
I couldn’t help but mentally compare our visitor with Vajra. Chandri and Vajra both had flowing dark hair and flashing eyes, and both favored silken scarves and sashes. Both also had no problem ending opponents, but that’s where they differed. Vajra preferred the messy, warning-to-others type of kill. Chandri was a quiet knife in the shadows followed by an equally quiet disappearance into same. I wasn’t sure who I was more afraid of.
However, Vajra sat stoically at the Colonel’s side as he discussed the particulars of the proposed mission with Chandri, a professional assassin.
“We’re on kind of a tight time frame, but we’ve already kicked in a bonus for that,” The Colonel was asking. “Think you can handle it?”
A lupine glance took in the figure on the credreader. Chandri returned her gaze to the Colonel, slowly nodding as a slight smile played across her lips. “Give me three days,” she said simply.
No doubt about it. Chandri scared me more.
