He’s death for hire… 

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. 


The Red Ledger: Part 1 by Meredith Wild
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Release Date-21/5/18

Meredith Wild was a new author for me so I was going in blind here.
And for such a short read “The Red Ledger” was surprisingly packed full of twists and turns from start to finish.
there was never a dull moment here and the initial blurb for this didn’t disappoint; so many are less than what is described and built up.
So this delivered on its promise and definitely left me wanting much more, and with so many questions left unanswered, I am really looking forward to devouring the next piece.
Still, Have no clue why Isobel Foster has been targeted by persons unknown; discluding the obvious of course of her father’s job.
And also still a trifle bemused how Isobel’s lost love Tristan ended up with the contract for her ultimate demise.
And this shadowy organisation Tristan is now contracted to; that has now placed a bounty on both there heads.
Who is Jay? And what does she hope to achieve here?
Because I’m damn sure there more to her agenda than she is actually disclosing.
I’m hoping all these questions and more will finally get answered in the next instalment; can’t wait.
This was such a fascinating read and the only thing that pulled it down slightly for me was I wasn’t entirely convinced at how swiftly Tristan went from cold to caring in regards to Isobel.
Despite that slight nitpick this is one that I highly recommend.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “The Red Ledger: (Part 1)” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
