A family becomes an assassin's target after a crime lord's sister is brutally murdered in Kaylin McFarren's latest erotic, psychological thriller, Twisted Threads.
Akira Hamada, a beautiful Japanese geisha, failed at killing Kaito Mitsui two years ago - the same yakuza gang leader who destroyed her lover and forced her to become an assassin. Now, with his sister's murderer traveling to the Caribbean on a cruise ship, Akira has ten days at sea to identify her target and complete her assignment as her penance, or face her own death.
Devon Lyons, unaware that his aunt and uncle could be singled out and murdered, brings Akira into their lives. In searching for evidence to justify Mitsui's revenge, she soon discovers that no one is who they seem to be. All the while, Devon is drawn into the mystery of mounting deaths on board the ship, putting his own life at risk.
With killers on the loose and no avenue for escape, tension is ratcheted to a breaking point, forcing everyone to choose between love and loyalty - or deeply held honor - in order to survive.

A geisha turned assassin? A treasure seeker? Murder on a cruise ship? If you've ever read any of Kaylin McFarren's stories, then you'll realize that these are the best ingredients for her erotic psychological thriller, TWISTED THREADS.
Oh boy! This story was amazing! I'm not sure where to begin.
Loves: How the story begins is completely unexpected but perfect. The use of language and description is positively enthralling. As one example, "She shifted her attention toward the stranger in their midst and shook the storm from her thin arched brows with a dead smile—undoubtedly the best piece of serenity she could put on for public wear." Do I have your attention yet? I loved that while yes, Akira is an assassin, she also has scruples vs say your typical sociopath. The characters are amazing. Not only Akira and Devon but all of them. They are as unique as they are compelling and I adored all the little details Ms. McFarren fed to us about each of them.
TWISTED THREADS is exactly that. Filled with twists and turns that will keep you tapping those pages to see what happens next. And oh boy, you will not be disappointed.
