Book synopsis:

Meet the Charons. They’re your typical dysfunctional family of four of the world’s best assassins. Father Michael is the former head of a covert arm of the CIA that did so much “wet work” it was code-named “Water Works.” Mother Valerie is a legendary femme fatale whose steamy sexuality has been luring men to their demise for nearly three-decade.

Then there are the twins, Seth and Olivia. While barely into their twenties, they have already delivered on several high-profile contracts. Seth is very much his father’s son and is calm and calculating. Olivia, on the other hand, has been out of control since she reached puberty. With her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit body and the face of an angel, combined with lethal martial arts skills, she is a force to be reckoned with.

In this episode, Olivia has reluctantly agreed to spend one-month training with the most feared assassin of the last one thousand years, Master Rōshi Dorje. Chaffing under Rōshi’s supervision she jumps at the chance to join a security team to protect a member of a secret organization known as the High Council.

Olivia soon discovers, instead of being part of the primary security detail, her job will be babysitting the rebellious teenaged granddaughter of the Council member. Just as pretty as Olivia and just as out of control, when these two lock horns all hell breaks loose.
