This book came from the author as a free story, and I will never give you less than an honest review, no matter its source. I do provide informational and purchase links to make it more convenient for you to access the book. I also receive a percentage of the sale if you use one of my links to buy it. And that's not enough money to be less than truthful *grin*.

Well, if this story doesn’t make you cheer for the assassin, you are one cold-hearted jerk! Kinda makes you wish she could just head on out and clean house of anyone who takes extreme advantage of weaker people.
Great story and complete with a start, a middle, and an end that introduces you to Gin Blanco’s world.
It’s revenge for raping a thirteen-year-old girl.
Gin Blanco is a part-time cook and waitress at the Pork Pit. By day. By night, she’s the Spider, an assassin. Fletcher Lane is her mentor, her handler, and her Pork Pit boss. And the assassin known as the Tin Man.
Detective Cliff Ingles is too corrupt to live.
Xavier is a giant and one of the bouncers at Northern Aggression, a nightclub of vice owned by Roslyn Phillips.
The title reflects the “Spider’s Bargain” to clean up a tiny bit of the city. A good deal for the mom and their fellow citizens.
