The Rhythm Section--A Stephanie Patrick Thriller: Stephanie Patrick Thrillers Series, Book 1
"Have you ever killed anyone? Not in self-defense." "What are you asking that for? "Because I'm curious." "You can't know what it feels like by being told." "I don't want to know what it feels like. I want to know how you actually make the leap from planning to do it to actually pulling the trigger."
Stephanie Patrick's life is destroyed by the crash of flight NEO027. Her family was on board and there were no survivors. Devastated, she drops out of college and her life spins out of control as she enters a world of drugs and prostitution--until a journalist discovers that the crash wasn't an accident.

She is young, smart, and beautiful--and has no family, making her the perfect candidate. The organization offers her a deal. She must undergo rigorous training; learn how to control her heart rate and breathing ("the rhythm section"), how to operate various weapons skillfully and efficiently, and she must improve her physical requirements, she will be given a new identity and asked to commit acts of terrorism on behalf of the organization. When she completes these assignments successfully--and proves her loyalty--she will be offered the opportunity to take out the terrorists who brought down flight NEO027. Stephanie agrees to all of the organization's demands without hesitation.

Is the organization telling her the truth--do they know who caused flight NEO027 to explode? Or are they using her for some other agenda?
