K Street

k-streeIt’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.


K Street by M.A. Lawson has a great plot and cunning, intelligent female characters.  Espionage and undercover government organizations lead to the theme of every man (or in this case woman) for himself.

Kay Hamilton, former DEA agent works for the Callahan Group, but is somewhat disturbed by its sketchy workings.  Hence, she has decided to resign.  Kay is stunned by the chaos when she enters the K Street office and enters with gun out and ready to fight.  She kills two and saves Thomas Callahan’s life, but the safe is gone.  Kay knows the company doesn’t keep much cash, so what are the robbers really after?  No longer is Kay wanting to resign, instead, she wants answers.

I did not read the first two installments in this series, and don’t feel it is necessary.  This book is action pact, fast-paced and exciting.  The hidden secrets and government cover-ups lead to unexpected plot twists and unanswered questions, and the ending of the novel made me hopeful for another face-off between Kay Hamilton and Olivia Prescott.

4/5 stars
