Black Widow and the Sandman by L.L. Reaper is an action-packed adventure that s gritty, fun, full of danger, and non-stop thrills.
Children in Cuba are dying from some sort of toxin. The Cuban government has tried to keep it quiet in hopes of finding the source but so far they haven t been able to locate it. They seek the help of underground sources here in the United States.
What happens when two of the world s best assassins are asked to work together to help find this cure? Things could get a bit tricky, especially since The Sandman and The Black Widow neither one are used to ever having to work with someone else. Will they be able to pull this off and find an antidote, or will they kill each other first?
I VERY highly recommend this book! It will hook you from the very start and keeps you glued to the pages the whole way through! I love the characters and their interaction! The story is full of mystery, action, intense suspense, and even a little romance. This is the first book in a series and at the end we get a little taset of book two, Black Widow and the Sandman: Hell Hath No Fury. I cannot wait for that one!
