Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Deanna Raybourn!



What happens when a quartet of 60-year-old female assassins discovers the organization they work for would rather kill them than let them retire? That’s the question behind KILLERS OF A CERTAIN AGE, a contemporary thriller that follows the adventures of Billie, Mary Alice, Helen, and Natalie, four of the deadliest, funniest, and most engaging women you’ll ever meet. They’ve been friends for forty years and although they’ve gone their separate ways, now they have to band together to settle scores and save their skins.



Deanna is a 54-year-old mother of one who is married to her college sweetheart and lives in Virginia. A sixth-generation native Texan, she writes about female characters who are as audacious as they are intelligent. She loves Twitter, travel, and tea—the sipping kind and the latest scandal. Come sit by her!


What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:

  • Appreciation for witty banter
  • Love of badass women
  • Need for escape
  • Understanding that some people just need killing


What to expect if we're compatible:

  • Nonstop thrill ride
  • Edgy laughs
  • Women who know aging isn’t the end
  • Characters you will wish you knew in real life


Killers of a Certain Age

Billie, Mary Alice, Helen, and Natalie have worked for the Museum, an elite network of assassins, for forty years. Now their talents are considered old-school and no one appreciates what they have to offer in an age that relies more on technology than people skills.

When the foursome is sent on an all-expenses paid vacation to mark their retirement, they are targeted by one of their own. Only the Board, the top-level members of the Museum, can order the termination of field agents, and the women realize they’ve been marked for death.

Now to get out alive they have to turn against their own organization, relying on experience and each other to get the job done, knowing that working together is the secret to their survival. They’re about to teach the Board what it really means to be a woman—and a killer—of a certain age.


Suspense | Thriller Spy [Berkley, On Sale: September 6, 2022, Hardcover / e-Book, ISBN: 9780593200681 / eISBN: 9780593200698]

Old-school lady assassins must survive targeting by their former agency
