A Cut-Throat Business by KA Laity - 200There’s a killer loose in London, protected in high places. Chastity Flame needs to look in the places the police can’t — or won’t — while a rogue colleague dogs her steps, looking for the key to secrets in her past. Can she find the killer before his bloodlust rises again? Will she expose her bitter rival before he targets more innocents? And how will she cope with the most dangerous mission — moving in with her boyfriend, Damien.

“Addictive: KA Laity confidently grabs hold of the Modesty Blaise template and ratchets its components up to 11 with Chastity Flame. And what she gives us is a highly addictive, fast-moving, clever, sexy and funny globe-trotting, spy romp. The first in what is sure to prove to be a massively enjoyable new series.” ~ Paul D Brazill, ROMAN DALTON PI, 13 SHOTS OF NOIR, SNAPSHOTS

A CUT-THROAT BUSINESS is available from Tirgearr Publishing.


“Step aside, 007, and make room for Chastity Flame. Ms. Flame outwits, out-spies and definitely out-sexes James Bond in this rollicking, witty and exceptionally well-written spy thriller.” ~ Dana Fredsti, PLAGUE TOWN, PLAGUE NATION

“Chastity Flame is my kind of woman — smart, savvy and always ready for a romp with the guy of her choice. I wish I’d created this character, but in K.A.Laity’s capable hands you won’t be disappointed. Erotic and witty, this is a page-turner.” ~ Philip Nutman, WET WORK
