Black-Hearted Bitch by Lynn Kear

A Kell Digby Crime Novel

Kell Digby has a rather unusual career, she’s a hit man. She’s been doing the job so long, she’s bored with it. But, she’s stuck in a rut.

Kell gets out of the rut quicker than she anticipated, after a routine hit in Atlanta goes badly wrong, in ways Kell didn’t think possible. She returns home to Chicago to figure out what to do next. Against her better instincts, Kell is persuaded to help with an elaborate con game, set up by the person who had betrayed her. The con involves a sister Kell had no idea existed. Can Kell carry out her mission? Or will blood be thicker than water?

Once again Lynn Kear has written a page turning, exciting, edge of the seat crime thriller with a sense of humor throughout.

Kell Digby is a character, who by rights, we really shouldn’t like due to the nature of her occupation. She’s a a hardened criminal, a cold blooded killer and as the title states, a black hearted bitch. But, I defy anyone to read this book and not find her likable and endearing once they get to know her.

I loved the multi-faceted characters and the scenic descriptions leave nothing to the imagination. Lynn Kear has the art of showing the reader the story rather than telling them what they are reading. I easily lost myself in the story and read the book almost in one sitting. 

The plots within are tight and well written, but not to be taken seriously. More of a light hearted black crime thriller/comedy, a highly entertaining read.

I’m looking forward greatly to the next in the series with the zany and slightly whacky Kell Digby and her friends.
