A Wanted Woman

Eric Jerome Dickey. Dutton, $26.95 (464p) ISBN 978-0-525-95427-9
Bestseller Dickey (Resurrecting Midnight) enters thriller territory with a tangled tale about a female contract killer known as MX-401 by her employers, and otherwise as Reaper because of her killer father, Old Man Reaper, who rigorously trained her when she was a teen. In Trinidad, where her assignment is to take out a government official, Reaper infiltrates the Laventille Killers—the gang that runs the island, led by War Machine and his wife, Karleen Ramjit. So fair she’s called Goldie, despite her black parents, Reaper is able to pass as a New Zealander, in which guise she seduces Karleen’s brother, King Killer, to gain access to her target. When things go awry, Reaper finds herself trapped in the islands, an expendable pawn in a conflict between warring gangs. Readers should be prepared for a surfeit of sex and violence, as this woman of a thousand faces tries to extricate herself from her predicament. Agent: Sara Camilli, Sara Camilli Agency. (Apr.)
