‘Finlay Donovan is irresistible!’ JANET EVANOVICH

‘I adore everything about it . . . the perfect blend of mystery and romcom’ ALI HAZELWOOD

Finlay Donovan is ready to bite the bullet. She’s done with her accidental life of crime.
But first, there’s the small matter of her debt to the Russian mob.

Her task should be simple: locate a rogue hitman before the cops do. The catch? This killer might be a cop himself.

From inside the citizens’ police academy, run by distractingly hot Detective Nicholas Anthony, Finlay needs to sleuth out her target – and some fresh ideas for her new crime novel.

Can she get to her edits and the hitman in time?
She’ll give it her best shot.

With more dating, diapers and dodging bullets, the third book in the hilarious, irresistibly lovable Finlay Donovan series is perfect for fans of Dial A for Aunties, Only Murders in the Building, and Killing Eve.


‘This series is magical! . . . Sharp, hilarious and heartfelt’

‘I love Finlay Donovan so much I would 100% hide a body for her’
JESSE Q. SUTANTO, author of Dial A for Aunties
