More About K Street by M. A. Lawson
The latest installment in M.A. Lawson's thrilling Kay Hamilton series, K Street finds the ex-DEA agent working solo to uncover the motivations behind a gruesome shooting at a covert intelligence agency in Washington, D.C.
It's been almost a year since Kay Hamilton was fired from the DEA for going rogue. Since then, she's been employed by the Callahan Group, a covert intelligence agency based in Washington, D.C. Her job description is as dubious as the people she works for, and the undercover mission that nearly killed her in Viking Bay
has Hamilton questioning the legitimacy of her employers.
When Hamilton arrives at the Callahan Group's K Street office to tender her resignation, she unwittingly interrupts a deadly heist during which the robbers have stolen the company safe and left her boss gravely injured. She knows that Thomas Callahan doesn't keep much cash in the safe--the men must have been after something other than money. But before Callahan slips into a coma, he whispers a name that will lead Kay to an organization even more secretive than the Callahan Group: the NSA.
Gripping, cinematic, and endlessly entertaining, K Street
is the third installment of M.A. Lawson's Kay Hamilton series, which follows our tough, gun-toting, and fearless heroine as she sets out to find answers and exact revenge.

Early in Lawsons fast-paced third Kay Hamilton novel (after 2015s Viking Bay), the former DEA agent heads one evening to her current employer, the Callahan Group, located on K Street in Washington, D.C., in order to resign. When she runs into heavily armed men exiting the Callahan office with a safe, she shoots one dead with her Glock, but two others escape. Inside, she finds her boss, Thomas Callahan, gravely wounded. Later, in the hospital, Callahan conveys a single name to her, Olivia Prescott, before lapsing into a coma. Kay doesnt know what was in the safe, who Prescott might be, or even whos behind Callahan and his black-ops missions. She only knows that she wants answers and that time is ticking. Lawson writes great action pieces, but some of his characters reactions dont ring true. Primary among these is the question of why Kay is so dogged in her pursuit of Callahans attackers, given her own tenuous relation with the man. This makes for an exciting if not always believable story. Agent: David Gernert, Gernert Company. (Jan.)
