'A slick plot, pin-sharp prose and an authentic feel' SUNDAY MIRROR

AS DISCUSSED ON THE SARA COX SHOW

Every working mum has had to face it.

The guilt-fuelled, anxiety-filled first day back in the office after maternity leave.

But this working mum is one of a kind.

Meet Alexis Tyler.

An elite covert agent within Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Her first project back is a high-stakes hit of global significance and the old boys network of government espionage is far from ready for the return of an operational mother. But woe betide anyone who ever tells Alexis Tyler 'you can't'.

She will have it all. Or she'll die trying . . .

And yes, she damn well will be home for bath time.

Perfect for fans of WHY MUMMY SWEARS and THE COWS.

Praise for Killing It:

'Witty . . . fun . . . clever. BRILLIANT!' Sophie Ellis-Bextor

'Funny, observant and proper adrenaline inducing thrills, I now solely aspire to be even half the woman Lex Tyler is. A bad ass with a baby: every mother's dream' Georgia Tennant

'What new mother can't relate to murder? This is the funny and thrilling story of how one woman does what all women do all the time - manage every single thing - and throws in a bit of efficient killing. Brilliant, wish I'd done more of that . . .' Arabella Weir

'A riotously fun read . . . Asia Mackay puts the sass in assassin' L S Hilton
