McKenna Carmichael has a new job in the beautiful country of Italy. This isn’t a pleasure trip: she must eliminate her mark and get out.
Her target Luigi Donati is rich and handsome, and his fashion house leads charity work. But his dossier shows that’s a front, hiding ties to where his real money comes from: slave labour.
Mack realises that not only is Luigi innocent, but someone else is intent on killing him. Thrown by doubt, Mack must choose her role in this Italian job — predator or protector.
Join Mack on her next thrilling adventure in Leigh K. Hunt’s new Nights series.
Genre(s): Action Thriller
Series: Nights Series, #2

Release Date: 2015-08-16
I wanted to try and uncover whatever secrets he was hiding, but instead diverted my attention to the view. The more Luigi spoke, the more I felt as though I could trust him.
This book introduces you to McKenna Carmichael, she is part of a small group who kill for hire. She is following the important rule of not killing innocent people.
With Venice Nights, Leigh K. Hunt has created a thrilling story with a hint of romance, the second instalment of the Nights Series. The story comprises a variety of characters with sufficient depth and a pretty good combination of fast-paced and slower-paced interactions. ‘Mack’ and her colleagues Chase, River and Gabe find themselves in competition with other killing teams when reaching the conclusion that Luigi seems to be innocent. I had a good time reading Venice Nights – it is an enjoyable read. I was drawn into the story on Mack’s lonely train ride. Mack is a very complex character, sometimes on the verge of being annoyingly stubborn. The story has some very interesting turns and is cleverly elaborated, making it harder to put away as the adventure proceeds.
This is for you if you like thrillers with a touch of romance, stubborn protagonists and clever turns.
The second book in a promising series – to read again.
