Some people measure life in hours. Days. Weeks. I measure mine in kills. A covert military mission gone wrong robbed me of my memory and any link to my past. This is my existence now. I execute and survive. Nothing more, nothing less. I was ready to write Isabel Foster’s name in my ledger of unfortunate souls until she uttered the one word that could stop the bullet meant for her. My name.
She knows my face. She knows me. She’s the key to the memories I’m not sure I want back. Now nothing is simple. I still have a job to do, and my soul isn’t worth saving. I’m not the man she thinks I am. I can’t love her. And sparing her life puts us both in the crosshairs.
Meredith Wild takes us on a thriller mystery of romantic portions in The Red Ledger series.
While it is a novella sized read it packs in a lot of drama and action.
Tristan has forgotten who he is. All he knows now is to follow kill instructions mysterious Jay sends him. Except his latest kill objective happens to know him. Happens to know his past and who he is. A man without ties is hard to predict except subconsciously he wants to know who he is. So he will find out by saving her life… even if it means putting his life in danger now.
It’s a quick paced read that is told in multiple POV. I hope there is a deeper meaning to all the coincidences in this book. Actions and motions seem to leap without much thought as to reason why and I had a hard time really connecting to the story. However, the premise and opportunities to explore are wide open to resolve in the next 8 additional books to the series.
