Samantha Sterling’s new job managing a B&B in historic Tombstone, Arizona, turns out to be a killer . . . literally.
The sprawling Sunset Bed and Breakfast is owned by an aging pair of gay hit-men and their tough-as-nails mother looking for help with their real business of whacking people for “The
Company.” All in the name of national security, of course.
After witnessing the poisoning of a “client” on her first day on the job, Samantha is faced with the choice of joining in the family business or following the dead man down an abandoned
mineshaft. Our lady plays along to stay alive, but is desperate to escape. The question is how? Michael Herod and his life mate, Sidney Munson, along with Sidney’s 75-year-old mother, Esther, an experienced hit-lady who carries a gun in her beehive of purple hair, not only keep Samantha under constant surveillance, they’ve also destroyed her previous identity.
Against a backdrop of offbeat and deadly characters, our new hit-lady is given no choice but to join forces and begin learning the hit-woman’s craft. Before long, Samantha learns that removing the scum of the earth from the earth has its advantages.
But when a terrorist cell crosses into the United States with a deadly cargo, Samantha winds up holding the lives of millions of innocent souls in her hands. Only she and her fellow hit-people can save them—if they can stay alive long enough.
