● 內文簡介

Killing It is James Bond meets Nikita for the Unmumsy Mum generation…
Meet Lex Tyler…
Proud first-time mama to a six-month-old daughter.
Assassin for an underground branch of Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
Returning from maternity leave, Lex needs to reassure sceptical colleagues she is still up to the job. From squeezing a Glock 45 into an overflowing nappy bag to having her breast pump mistaken for government issue torture equipment, juggling two different worlds is not easy.
Her first mission back leads to the darkness of her working life colliding with the bright plastic of soft play as she uses her new mother status to get close to the glamorous Russian wife of her next target. When the hit goes wrong, Lex needs to clear her name, taking down whoever is setting her up and stay alive; all whilst battling sleep deprivation, a teething baby and an inquisitive husband.
There is no soft safety mat here. No brushing it off and getting back up again. This is KILLING IT.
