Assassins Vengeance.jpg

Eva and her fractured team are on the run, desperate to find answers and uncover who has betrayed them from within the shadowy government organisation known only as the Section.
Evading assassination in Berlin and Prague, Eva has had time to regroup and try to solve the mystery behind the attempts on her life.
But her enemies are one step ahead of her, eliminating anything and anyone who stands in their way.
Hell hath no fury like a woman who’s been shot at and survived … twice.



Published 14th January and available to purchase from the following retailers – Amazon UK | Amazon US


Assassins Vengeance is book two in the English Spies Mystery Series from Rachel Amphlett and follows the story of Eva Delacourt. I don’t recommend reading this as a stand alone, you definitely have to read book one, Assassins Hunted to follow the story but believe me you wont be disappointed.

Assassins Vengeance carries straight on from book one and thank goodness for that as we were left hanging on a real OMG moment, but I really wasn’t expecting the shocks that were in store for me in this second book.

We find out a bit more as to how Eva became a member of the section and how she has come to be in the situation she is in and I have to say I was totally blown away once again with this story. Eva really is a fantastic character and I said last week that I thought there was more to learn about her character and I was spot on.

The pace is a little bit slower this time but I was still totally engrossed and sitting on the edge of my seat, my little brain ticking away trying to put the pieces together to be totally shocked buy the next revelation. There are so many shocks and surprises it’s very easy to lose track of time and before you know it, you’ve finished and eagerly awaiting the next instalment.

Assassins Revenge is released next week, Sunday 21st and I cant wait to get stuck into the final story although I’ll be very sad to see it come to an end.
