Jamie Sinclair is a private investigator and a security specialist. When her father, who is a retired two-star general, asks her for help, she agrees to help him. Little does she know that when she agrees, her lives, both her physical and love, will be in serious danger.

I did not feel like I was reading a book but rather listening to a friend tell me a story. I do not know how the author did that, but the whole book felt personal and that is an awesome experience for a reader to have. The writin

When Jamie's father has a request, turning it down isn't an option. This is how the security specialist finds herself traveling to London to accompany a State Department courier tasked with delivering new passports to a Middle Eastern physicist and accompanying that person back to the United States. But things turn sour fast when Jamie and the courier are attacked as soon as they arrive in the UK. From there on, the job takes turn after turn for the worst and Jamie is stuck right in the middle. ...more

Kill Shot by by Nichole Christoff is a 2015 Alibi publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I have not read the first book in the series, although I would like to someday, but this one reads as a stand alone just fine.

Jamie Sinclair is a security specialist who still wishes to garner her father's approval. So, when the powerful Senator asked Jamie for a favor you could have knocked her over with a feather. Naturally, despite

I received a free electronic copy of this book from Net Galley/the publisher, for an honest review. This is the first story in the Jamie Sinclair series of mystery/intrigue books. I liked this introduction to the series. It is well written, the major characters are 3-dimensional, and the story flows. Jamie is a private investigator and security specialist and former Army brat. Her father, now a U.S. Senator, is also a 2-star General. Even though Jamie grew up on a number of army bases across the ...more

Well, Jamie sure found herself in some interesting situations. Early on I figured out on part, was surprised that Jamie didn't see that herself. I was glad that Jamie was able to help the Dr. find safety, even at the cost that came along with it. I was a bit surprised the role that Jamie's father played, didn't expect all the aspect, nor did I expect an old friend to pop up and the role they played. I was glad that Jamie saw them for the person they were. I was glad where Jamie ended up at the e ...more

I read this one a few days ago, but had to wait a bit to write my review. I needed to get over my mad, because there were things that happened in this book that absolutely infuriated me. It says something that I got so involved with the character of Jamie Sinclair in the first book (The Kill List) that I wanted to grab her and shake her over some of her behavior in this book.

The Kill Shot is certainly another wild ride for Jamie, and if you like thrillers w

Jamie is a likable character, a true professional, however, I am confident all the romance in both novels overshadows Jamie's full potential to the point where it solidly distracts. Given the seriousness of her assignment, she wasn't as sharp as she was previously. She seems overly preoccupied with both men's interests - Barrett and Philip, which is understandable to a degree. Her diversion conflicts with the impression she's created of

Jamie Sinclair is back in another adventure. She is a private investigator. Her father is a formal general, now a United States Senator. Nothing Jamie has ever done has been good enough for the man but that doesn't stop her from trying to earn his approval. So when the Senator asks her for a favor she jumps at the chance to help. He wants her to escort a courier to London, make sure she arrives safely with the diplomatic pouch she's carrying, then return home. It sounds simple but as soon as she ...more

Wow . . . this book was the first I've read in the series and it blew me away. I loved the richness of the setting (Mississippi), and the layered characters. Jamie Sinclair goes to Beauville for a romantic weekend with Barrett, her military man, but is quickly drawn into a mystery when the Lady Luck, the floating casino they are on, is blown up by a dirty bomb. She recognizes the man who dropped the bomb and reunites (sort of) with her mentor, a grizzled private investigator who taught her most ...more

Let me start by saying that this was a great read and a gripping thriller. I simply didn’t enjoy it as much as the first book in the series. In this one, Jamie allows herself to be so distracted by the men in her life that her supposed skills as a security expert seem to be almost non-existent! The fact that the reader can see her blatant mistakes and she cannot gets very annoying. Also, as a non-puritanical reader, I wish she would just get on with it and bed her man. The way that the author pu ...more

Jamie Sinclair's imposing, retired two-star general father and new U.S. Senator is asking her for a favor and she can hardly believe it. He's never needed a favor from anyone, much less her, in his life. But he's asking and she can't say no. Really, she is not allowed to say no. She reluctantly packs a bag and heads out on this favor her father asks of her. This might be the last favor she ever agrees to be forced into doing for him.

In the second Jamie Sinclair novel, The Kill Shot, the reader is reunited with Jamie and Barrett, but interestingly, The Kill Shot is not a straight up crime thriller. In fact, to me Nichole Christoff's sophomore outing read more like a spy novel. I was surprised by this shift in flavour to the narrative, though the general style of the book is very much the same as its predecessor. Jamie remains a kick-ass heroine and I really enjoyed reading about her next adventure.

The Kill Shot by Nichole Christoff is an action-filled and engrossing political thriller/mystery. This pulse-pounding second installment in the Jamie Sinclair series is a very absorbing novel with plenty of twists and turns that keep the pages turning at a blistering pace.

Review Excerpt:

There are many things I liked about The Kill Shot starting with Jamie herself--she is smart, driven, holds her own in a male-dominated career, and has a sense of humor. She's not perfect and has plenty of issues--some deeply buried and some readily apparent. I also like Barrett, who although strong and no-nonsense, also has a soft side and unlike her ex-husband and father, is pretty supportive of Jamie and her skills. I think the pacing of the book was good--I like a lot of action

3.5 Stars!

Not exactly what I expected. I really enjoy thrillers and suspense novels and Kill Shot sounded like a good fit for me when I found it on NetGalley.

What I didn't like: The purpose of the suspense novel to me is it keeps the reader guessing and Kill Shot fell somewhat short in that area. I'm not sure what Ms Christoff had in mind but it was almost as if she had a secret and couldn't keep it. The subtle clues about the antagonist were not subtle. I felt like I was being hit over the hea

A few months ago, I reviewed The Kill List, the first novel in the Jamie Sinclair series. I liked the feisty female security specialist with a take-no-prisoners attitude. The Kill Shot is the second book in the series, and Jamie returned in full force.

The Kill Shot saw Jamie off-balance from the beginning. When her father, a hard-ass senator whose approval Jamie desperately desires, asks her to do a ‘favour’, she finds herself in London. What was supposed to be a basic security detail job turns

This is the second book in this series staring Jamie, the daughter of an ex-army officer who is now a senator. She continues to be a highly successful security consultant and private investigator and in this story she is given the task of escorting a US official to meet up with a nuclear scientist in London and then to bring them both safely back to the US. It seems like a straightforward mission - but, as in the earlier book, nothing is straightforward when Jamie is involved!

This was a great read! The main character Jamie Sinclare is a strong female lead. She is strong, inside and out and smart. She has her flaws but those flaws make her more real. The plot was well written with plenty of action to keep me reading late into the night to see what would happen next. This story grabbed my attention from the first page and kept it to the end. There are plenty of twists and turns and some edge of your seat action. The plot is still believable with no over the top moments ...more

The Kill Shot is the second book featuring Jamie Sinclair, private detective-turned-security-agent for hire. Her Senator father hires her for what seems to be a routine job; guarding someone delivering a US diplomatic pouch to London and home again. Once Jamie gets off the plane in London, she quickly realizes that this job is anything but routine.

The Kill Shot was the second book in the Jamie Sinclair series by Christoff. Jamie is a security specialist and daughter of a U.S. Senator. When her father has a political request for her to travel to London to ensure a doctor is able to seek asylum in the US, Jamie jumps at the chance to please her father.
