The Spy and Her Serpent
The Those Who Bear Arms Series, Book 2
By Maria Ying
A rough street criminal on a mission of revenge falls for the one woman she's supposed to kill: Singapore's uncrowned queen of crime.
Olesya Hua, narcotics empress
…has everything: power, wealth, and a city that’ll soon be hers. But her hunger is endless. She covets more still—and what Olesya Hua wants, she always gets.
Dallas Seidel, syndicate fixer
…lost her chosen family to bloody violence ordered by the Huas. She’ll stop at nothing to avenge them—she’ll stop at nothing until the Hua sisters are in the ground.
Their goals are in brutal opposition. Deceit and plots-within-plots will put them at each other’s throat. They careen toward not just mutually assured destruction, but toward a fatal passion that’ll mark them both forever.
