The Family GirlIce-cold assassin Catalina Bennett wants a Faberge egg. A CIA funded venture-capital investment firm wants to get the mysterious product they’ve been funding. Mother, Catalina’s handler, wants her dead. CIA operative Jim Campbell wants to catch her. And all her father Frank, a retired assassin, wants is for his daughter not to shoot his neighbors. 
The Family Girl introduces Catalina Bennett as one of the deadliest and most effective assassins in the world, bred to kill by a quiet and secluded Sicilian Famiglia. Her success is illustrated by an extensive collection of art and Christian Louboutin shoes.
Her latest job seemed like an easy way to procure a fabulous Faberge egg for her collection, but Catalina ended up opening Pandora’s Box when she learned that the mark was an asset for the CIA. Soon she is on the run, being hunted by the veteran intelligence agent, Jim Campbell.
She takes refuge with her father in the suburbs of Chicago, and discovers that dealing with the neighbors can be just as dangerous as dodging bullets. Using her network of connections, spearheaded by the imposing Eddie Washington – her childhood friend turned arms dealer – Catalina begins putting together the pieces of the puzzle. Her journey takes her from Chicago to New York, Washington D.C., and finally Miami, where she aims to settle all her affairs… or go out with a bang.

This book titled Family Girl. Is about a female hit women, who comes from a long line of assassins from the Bonedetto Family from Sicily and they now work out of Chicago part time. Catalina, who is the assassin does a job and then takes an extra job not looking at it all the way through. After it is finished it turns out that she was set up and now the entire family is in danger. She must find out who sent her the job and why and deal with the problem. What I like about this story besides being fast paced is that the author gives you a back story on every character that she comes in touch with and how each person that is helping her or chasing her all have some connection. This makes the story more interesting and for me more enjoyable than just a shot them up story. I like how she goes into detailed about cars, cloths, disguises, weapons, etc… this made for a very entertaining book and much better read than I was expecting. Full of action and a little suspense, overall a great read. I got this book from net galley.  4 STARS.
