From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Gemma Halliday, comes Play Nice, her most thrilling novel yet!
 
She faked her death to escape life as an assassin. But now her enemies have tracked her down, and this time they want her to stay dead.
 
Anya Danielovich was an assassin in her former life. But that was a long time ago. Today she’s just Anna Smith—a single, thirtysomething woman living in San Francisco with a simple desire to lead a better life. But she’s still haunted by her past—the people she killed, the mentor she betrayed, the woman she was. She’s taken care to cover her tracks, but she’s beginning to feel like she’s being watched…
 
Nick Dade is a hired gunman—the best of the best. He’s read Anya’s file and, after weeks of surveillance, he’s ready to pull the trigger…until someone else beats him to the punch. With his agenda shattered, Nick suddenly finds himself thrown together with the woman he’s been sent to eliminate. Who is she really? Who hired the second hit? And who can he trust? Together Nick and Anna find themselves embroiled in a web of deceit and desire as an unknown enemy closes in. To unravel the truth, Anna must face her past even if that means risking both Nick’s life and her own.

“Halliday’s opening installment of her new mystery series will leave you breathless and anxious for the next. . . . you’re in for a high-octane read that’s as fun as it is fast.”—Linda Castillo, New York Times bestselling author of Pray for Silence

Play Nice is captivating from start to finish. Every book Gemma Halliday writes is a keeper!”—Brenda Novak, New York Times bestselling author of Trust Me
