Book Review: Killing Sarai

Title Killing Sarai

Series In the Company of Killers, book 1

Author J. A. Redmerski

Release Date June 19, 2013

Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years.

Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape. But things don’t go as planned and instead of finding transport back to Tucson, she finds herself free from one dangerous man and caught in the clutches of another.

While on the run, Victor strays from his primal nature as he succumbs to his conscience and resolves to help Sarai. As they grow closer, he finds himself willing to risk everything to keep her alive; even his relationship with his devoted brother and liaison, Niklas, who now like everyone else wants Sarai dead.

As Victor and Sarai slowly build a trust, the differences between them seem to lessen, and an unlikely attraction intensifies. But Victor’s brutal skills and experience may not be enough in the end to save her, as the power she unknowingly holds over him may ultimately be what gets her killed.

This is their story…

This is my favorite book by J. A. Redmerski to date.

Reading Killing Sarai was like reading a good action movie. Does that make sense? From the very beginning, my attention was fully focused on this book. I could picture every scene perfectly. I love it when books are so vivid and really come to life. Though there is some romance in the story, it definitely took a backseat for me. The action was the more intriguing part of the story and I constantly wanted more of it.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by Killing Sarai and I'm looking forward to reading the next book, Reviving Izabel.


5 out of 5 stars
