Even professional killers need vacations, but for Victor Faust, his vacation in Venezuela is about more than relaxation and time alone with Izabel Seyfried. It is a chance for him to come clean to Izabel: to tell her the truth about why he sent her to Italy with his brother, the truth behind his interest in Nora Kessler, and about his knowledge of Izabel’s child with her f ...more

If you haven’t tried this series and love stories that have action, drama, and love, than I implore you to jump in and meet these characters! Fans have been waiting patiently anxiously for this next book in the series since J.A. Redmerski left us all twisted and conflicted in book number five. This book could also be called Victor Faust's Secrets...

”Victor’s past has finally caught up with him: the women he has cared for, loved, and killed; the families he has destroyed; the unforgi

I'm not really sure how I can write a review on this without spoiling a single thing. So I will stay away from major plot points and just gush about how fan-freaking-tastic the latest book from the In the Company Of Killers series was.

Behind The Hands that Kill picks up right where The Black Wolf left off. And after getting a lot of questions brought out from The Black Wolf answered, about 465 more have come up after finishing this book. I again don't want to spoil a single thing so I won't say

Evaluating one's life leads to change in one's life.

I should've savored this a little longer to make it last. Once again, it was over too fast for me. I was left in a puddle of mush, being drained by everything that took place.

A break for our favorite assassin couple, Victor and Izabel, has taken them to Venezuela. The vacation doesn't last long when someone from Victors past decides to get revenge.

Well, just like that it's over for now. I can't believe it. I zipped through this series like my frigging hair was on fire.

For about the first 60 percent I was just about sick to my stomach because I couldn't believe what was happening. I was actually crying.

I have grown so attached to these killers and I am going to miss them tremendously. ❤

This was inhale one-sitting reading at it's finest and I'm so happy I was able to read it with my friends Riley and Kennia. Our discussions on this series is my favorite part of reading it.

I also want to stand and slow clap Izabel's character development for a moment. Gurl, I am so proud of you. And you're not even my favorite character. Her conversation with Victor at the end was my favorite part of the book be
J.A. Redmerski never disappoints. Behind The Hands That Kill has her trademark devastating twists, thrilling action, and nail-biting suspense. In the sixth book of In the Company of Killers, Victor’s dark past is brought to light as a trip to Venezuela takes an unexpected turn and his growing list of enemies become a greater threat than ever before.

Can an assassin ever really relax? During a supposed-vacation to Venezuela, Victor is on the cusp of revealing unsettling truths to Izabel when the c
Behind the Hands That Kill is the sixth installment in J.A. Redmerski's dark thriller/suspense series titled: In the Company of Killers. OMG so much happened in this book!!! ...but in terms of progressing the storyline, very little actually happened. But maybe that's OK though. Afterall, we all know whose hands those are in the title and a little focus on Victor is never a bad thing.

Victor's character has always been so cold steel and programmed in my opinion, but pieces of that robotic exterio

This series keeps getting better and better! I was excited that we got more of Victor and Izabel in this one! My review will be short because I'm scared I will give something away.

This one starts off with Victor and Izabel on a much needed vacation. But we all know that Victor doesn't know how to be on vacation. We also know that this book couldn't be filled with birds and butterflies. lol

The wait is freaking over and the Boss is here! The story focuses on Victor Faust a.k.a The Boss, the merciless killer and Izabel's lover. I'm excited and nervous what's going to happen next after that cliffhanger on The Black Wolf. Here, he bares his past and we get to know the real him.

Jacqueline's Reads

I love this series like crazy mad. EACH book I get is so unexpected and so different. I don’t know how J.A. Redmerski does it. And she’s so sneaky too with her release dates. Ahhhh all good things come to those who wait.

Behind the Hands that Kill is the 6th book In the Company of Killers series. I’ve been waiting for this book since book two. This is Victor’s story and we get into the gritty and messy part.

This book is not an easy read
Blown away. Totally speechless. I'm not going to go into lots of detail because honestly, this is one series that you don't want spoiled (trust me, I love spoilers usually but not here). Behind the Hands That Kill focuses primarily on Victor and Izabel. I was completely shocked at the twists and turns. I thought I knew these characters but Ms. Redmerksi reminded me early on that I really have no idea. I will be honest and say that reading the first 60% gave me a bit of a stomachache because I co ...more

"I am a monster in the shadows; the blood of many stains my gnarled hands; the souls of the innocent are forever caught in my blade-like teeth.
So how can this be, that even an ounce of light be given to a monster such as me?"

Omg this book was everything.

I will forever be obsessed with this series and I hope it never ends, as the author slightly hinted at the end of the book, I have many MANY more to look forward to.

We all love Victor. In this book we get to see his story, see his secrets and learn of his past which I’m sure many of us have been dying to know. It all comes out in the open. But we must forgive him ladies, we cannot, must not judge him. He has his reasons for his actions and the choices he makes.

Bu serinin ana karakterleriyle sorunum var kesin. Victor ve Izabel bir kitapta fazlaysa, kitabı sevemiyorum. İkisine de, sözde aşklarına da, kafa karışıklıklarına, abuk sabuk kararlarına da tahammül edemiyorum. Hele Izabel’in tripler kraliçesi tavırlarına.😒😒 Süzülmüş salak Izabel, koskoca Katiller Çetesi lideri Victor’ı maymun yaptı iyice. Söz konusu Izabel olduğunda aslan kesileceğine, iyice ezik bir tip oldu adam.

Katiller Çetesi Serisinin 6. kitabı olan Victor, şu zamana kadar seride okumaktan en çok hoşlandığım kitap olabilir.

Bunun nedeni Victor'un ağzından veya onun aşkını doyasıya okuduğumuz için değil tabi ki.

Bana göre serinin en hissedilebilir kitabı olduğu için.

Bu seri hakkında yorumlarımı okuduysanız tek şikâyetim, Sarai'nin kendini bilmez tavırları haricinde karakterlerin aşırı duygusuz ve mekanik bir şekilde aktarılışıydı. Kara Kurt'ta bir şekilde olaylar Sarai için çıkmaza girince Victor'un kla

I still love Victor. I do. I think it's because the author led me to understand more about him and his reasoning. I really struggled right along with him throughout the story. And I loved how much he truly loved Izabel. So despite al

Deciding that they are in need of a vacation, Victor and Izabel head down to Venezuela to spend some time together. But this is more than just a vacation. Victor hopes to finally come clean to Izabel about his past and about a few other secrets he’s been hiding. But his plan is shot to hell when the couple gets abducted and taken to an unknown location.
