Real Dangerous Girl(2012)
(The first book in the Kim Oh Thriller series)
A novel by Kim Oh (K W Jeter)
No easy answers. No big international spy secret bank accounts. No superheroes or magic. Just her wits, guts... And a very large gun. Inspired by Korean Noir films, this Lincoln Square edition of K. W. Jeter's originally self published Kim Oh series marks a reediting of the original two books into one complete edition. The series has garnered praise from writers and fans alike, and is the start of a new Lincoln Square imprint dedicated to publishing books we consider worthy of releasing or re-releasing. Training to be a killer was only the first half of the job. Now Kim has to put her life on the line - not just to get revenge on her crooked ex-boss, but to keep from being killed herself before she can take her first shot. Her only help is Cole, the crippled hitman who agrees to show her how to use a gun. And they're up against not only a crew of murderous security guards - but Kim's own fears and doubts as well. If she's going to survive, she'll have to do things she's never done before - and become something beyond her wildest imagining. Noted sf, fantasy, and noir author K. W. Jeter takes a new turn in the thriller genre, building on the dark, gritty moods of his previous science fiction and horror novels. Fans of mystery and suspense novels will find a lot to like in the Kim Oh series. It recalls Richard Stark's (Donald Westlake's) Parker novels but with a smart, tough female taking the lead. Kim is cousin to Sara Paretski's V.I. Warshawsky and Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). Sit back, buckle up, get ready for the ride . . .
