Raphael Koenig needs a vacation plus if he is lucky, a sexual fling. New Orleans is the vacation location and Alden Durant provides the fling.

Perfect Strangers is a detailed dark crime story with surprising twist and turns including a touch of romance. The plot is well written and well paced. The realistic characters are justified in their actions or not, depending on the reader’s point of view.

Raphael Koenig is an assassin working for an underground vigilante network.
When Raphael is not correcting a miscarriage in the justice system, he works as a construction laborer. He self medicates with whiskey to ward off the nightmares of his dark childhood, but Raphael considers his kills as righteous because he only assassinates bad people.

Alden is an intriguing character; Alden reveals nothing about himself to Raphael. It is only by accident that Alden and Raphael discover each other’s profession. The intimacy Raphael and Alden shared evolved into love, though they both believed they would never meet again. However, fate has a way of bringing star crossed lovers back together along with revealing the truth. 

Edward Kendrick has created a very impressive saga that I thoroughly enjoyed.
