Making A Killing

A Thriller by Cori Nevruz

Making A Killing

Natalia was raised to believe that she was too odd for societal acceptance. With the death of her cruel and controlling mother, she seeks out her only remaining relative. She is determined to show her long-lost half-brother, and everyone else, that she is perfectly normal. But, when she meets a prominent businessman with an irresistible proposition, she can no longer hide her true nature. Adopting his mantra, “You Do You,” Natalia realizes she doesn't have to mask her true colors. He accepts her for the quirky, badass assassin she is. If only her brother could do the same. Knowing she can have everything if she stops at nothing, Natalia discovers, one natural-looking death at a time, that making a killing is easier than fitting in.


"A mix of intrigue, adventure and comedy, Nevruz expertly places characters with out-of-the-ordinary personalities and quirks into circumstances at once familiar, whimsical and dark... an exciting and fascinating tale of family dynamics, corporate gamesmanship... and murder. Lots of murder... I highly recommend buying this book and strapping yourself in for a wild ride!" — Starred Review


"This book was fantastic. The writing is superb. The characters are intriguing and well written. The pacing is perfect, I was able to read this in one day. The ending had a huge twist that I did not see coming. I highly recommend this book and I am excited to see more from this author." — Starred Review
