Cold Around the Heart

Bonnie Parker is a private detective with a secret - she moonlights as a professional assassin. Now she's in the fight of her life against a ruthless international hit man, as the small New Jersey beach town of Brighton Cove erupts into a battleground. Cold Around the Heart is the newest thriller from bestselling suspense author Michael Prescott (Grave of Angels).Bonnie Parker is a small-town private detective on the Jersey shore who just happens to be named after America's most notorious female outlaw, the distaff half of Bonnie & Clyde. And though no one can prove it, she's an outlaw in her own right, willing to supplement her PI duties by acting as a professional assassin. For a price, and when circumstances warrant it, she'll take extreme measures to solve her clients' problems - permanently. Bonnie is experienced and tough – but she's never gone up against a man like Pascal, a globetrotting hit man who has raised murder to the level of a fine art. During a turbulent summer night, while Bonnie struggles to untangle a web of deception that stretches to the jungles of South America, she and Pascal face off in a blistering battle for survival - a battle only one of them can win. Michael Prescott is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of 23 thrillers.
