An assassin has come to Ashland to murder Gin Blanco, the renowned killer known as the Spider. Ever since she declared war on Mab Monroe, the ruthless head of the Ashland underworld, she's had a target on her back. Mab wants her dead in the worst kind of way, which is why she's hired Elektra LaFleur. LaFleur is just as ruthless as Gin, and has electrical elemental magic that equals Gin's Ice and Stone power. Complicating matters is the fact that Mab's kidnapped an innocent young girl. For Gin, finding her is priority number one... but surviving is a close second.

Our customer reviews
"Are you going to kill this guy? Or are we just going to sit here all night?" With that opening line, Estep does not let me down with the fourth installment of her Elemental Assassin series. Gin Blanco and the rest of the characters are just as snarky as ever but now Estep reveals that even a hard-ass assassin can find love and acceptance. My favorite scene has to be at the end when Gin walks into Owen's living room with her baby sister at her side. I actually had tears starting! Tangled Threads focuses on Gin's vendetta on Mab Monroe for killing her family. The only other survivor is Gin's baby sister, Bria, who is now a police detective who has made it her goal to find the Spider and stop her from killing. Little does she know that the Spider and Bria's missing sister Genevieve Snow are one and the same but now known as Gin Blanco. Gin struggles with how she is going to reveal herself to Bria. She doesn't think she could handle it if Bria rejects her. Before she can deal with Bria, she must finish her war with Mab. Slowly Gin works her way up the ladder, leaving her mark so that Mab knows the Spider is gunning for her. Mixed into all of this, Gin is also struggling with her feelings for Owen. She is just waiting for that day that Owen looks at her with disgust and leaves her like Donovan Caine did. Owen is making it pretty clear that he is in it for the long haul and is patient with her. And to just make matters even more complicated, Mab has hired another assassin named LaFleur to take out the Spider once and for all. Another fast-paced amazing read. Estep knows how to keep a reader glued to her stories. If you have missed the other books in the series it is time to start catching up!show moreby Kelsey Opsahl
