By J. A. Redmerski
Release Date: October 1, 2014

Victor Faust’s new Order is growing. Business is good as there is no rest for the wicked in an underground world of hardcore criminals and contract killing. Relationships among the operatives have changed little over the past year—but things are about to change now, and all six high-ranking members of the new Order will be blindsided by an unlikely enemy.

Loved ones whose only ties to Victor’s organization are their relationships with its members, are abducted. The price to get them back safely—the six must confess their deepest, darkest secret to this mysterious young woman named Nora, who is as deadly as she is beautiful, and who seems to know more about each of them than they know about each other. And although no one has any clue about who Nora really is, it becomes clear that she also isn’t who she appears to be.

So much more is at stake than secrets and the lives of innocent loved ones; with each member that Nora forces to confess, the truth about their dark pasts and their present objectives will cast suspicion, pit some against each other, and may tear others apart.

Before the game is over everyone will know who this woman is and why she is here, but the damage she will leave in her wake could be the beginning of the new Order’s destruction. Whose dark secret will be the darkest of all? And can Victor’s Order survive any of them?

First off, I must expressed how happy I am that this book isn't a prequel (thought I do love me some Fredrik) 
because knowing what I know after book 3, I feel like wouldn't enjoy it very much.
I would have still read it though but the hopeless romantic in me needs a happy-ever-after for him.
Second, the blood-red lips on the cover give me chills. 

I absolutely love In The Company of Killers.
There's assassins, 'specialists', secret Orders and romance. 
What more could I ask for? It's wonderfully thrilling.

But the biggest reason why I'm looking forward to this 'present day' book: more Victor Faust. Swooon.
