Perfect Victim (Nadia Stafford #3.6)
Fifteen years ago, hit man Tyrone Cypher disappeared into the wilderness. Now he’s back with a job for his old “friend” Jack. While Jack doesn’t consider Cypher much of a friend, the job is ideal for Nadia.There’s a killer in Honolulu, targeting those involved in the family court system. When no one else would take one victim’s cases, lawyer Angela Kamaka did, putting herself squarely in the killer’s cross-sights.For Nadia, Angela is the perfect victim—an innocent person in danger for doing the right thing. So Nadia and Jack get an all-expenses paid trip to Hawaii courtesy of Tyrone Cypher, who has his own reasons for wanting to keep Angela safe.For those who’ve read the Rockton series, yes, this is Tyrone Cypher from that series, making this a crossover story. Perfect Victim takes place about five years before Cypher appears in A Darkness Absolute.Note: this is a novella, not a full-length novel.

    I just finished reading Double Play and decided to dive right into this one as well. In Perfect Victim someone from Jack's past resurfaces and they want Jack and Nadia's help. This story contains a mystery and some suspense and it all gets neatly wrapped by the end.I thought the mystery was well done, there was a lot of guessing of who was the murderer. And there were some nice twists at the end that made a lot of sense, but I hadn't predicted them, which I like. It also was interesting that the I just finished reading Double Play and decided to dive right into this one as well.

And there were some nice twists at the end that made a lot of sense, but I hadn't predicted them, which I like. It also was interesting that the book took place on Hawaii, although the focus isn't really on the setting, you did notice it took place there.The dual point of view worked very well here with Jack and Nadia sometimes splitting up to cover different angles. And other times it's just fun to see both their point of views when it comes to the other. Just like Double Play this one again furthers their relationship a bit more and I am happy where it leaves them at the end of this novella.To summarize: this is a great novella for fans of the series who want a bit more. Perfect Victim contains a mystery for Nadia and Jack to solve and everything gets neatly wrapped by the end. The dual point of view works really well and it's fun to get both jack and Nadia's point of view. It also further their relationship a bit. I was happy to get these two novella's and got to read a bit more about the characters this way.

    It was fun to see Nadia and Jack in detective mode more than just straight up killers. I found it funny that they were in Hawaii, not a place you imagine them, although the way they relaxed made me smile, it was very them.The whole who done it was interesting. Not what I expected, mostly because how things were separated. I was also surprised when Angela realized who paid to protect her and their connection.

    I thought I pre-ordered this, but I guess I did not.Five stars for being just what I want out of this series.

    This was actually a book with two novellas, Double Play and Perfect Victim. I read Double Play some time back on Kindle. I couldn't find this book on Goodreads so posted Perfect Victim as an ebook.Nadia Stafford lost her job in law enforcement after shooting the serial killer after she had arrested him. Now she runs a wilderness lodge in Canada, supplementing her income as a hitman, but only for assignments that she finds morally acceptable. Jack, the hitman who trained her, is now also her love This was actually a book with two novellas, Double Play and Perfect Victim. I read Double Play some time back on Kindle.

Now she runs a wilderness lodge in Canada, supplementing her income as a hitman, but only for assignments that she finds morally acceptable. Jack, the hitman who trained her, is now also her lover.When hitman Tyrone Cypher shows up at her lodge he tries to hire them for a job that is right for Nadia (an innocent person in danger for doing the right thing); they decide to take the job protecting an attorney Cypher says he once had a relationship with. It also includes a first class all expenses paid trip to Honolulu. Seems a killer in Honolulu is targeting people in the family court system and lawyer Angela Kamaka is next on the killer’s list.I really enjoy the Nadia Stafford series, and this novella threw in a tie to her Rockton series (which I also love). The story kept me guessing which way the story was going to lead me, and had a really fun surprise at the end.

    Having been a huge fan of Nadia and Jack this is a very welcome visit. It also ties in with the new Rockton series, but you don't have to have read the series, although if you like Nadia, you'll like the new series too. Good mystery of who the murderer is and the thought processes of both Jack and Nadia, for once they aren't doing the hits. Quick reading fix for catching up with old friends in a good plot.

    I enjoy the Nadia series and totally excited that Kelley wrote a novella giving us more....even better... A cross-over with a character from The Casey Duncan series who amused me in the previous book Darkness Absolute!!! How could I not enjoy this!!! Nadia and Jack head to Hawaii for an unusual job; protecting a loved one from a murderer. Can they solve the murders before he strikes again?

    I’m glad this was not just a trilogyI read the first two Nadia books years ago and was upset when the third in the trilogy was supposedly permanently postponed. I was so happy when KA was able to complete the trilogy and am happy that there are more. This book felt like a ending but if there are more in this series, I’ll read them happily.

    I just love Nadia and Jack. Excellent addition to their story arc. Would have been 5 stars, but every now and then, the nick-of-time thing got a bit old.
