Maura Nelson, who has expertise in physics, medicine, and programming, has stumbled upon a way to execute someone using only the computers in her home office - silently, anonymously, leaving no trace of violence, so that her target appears to have died of natural causes. After eliminating Syrian tyrant Bashar al-Assad, Maura entices Jack Plymouth into a partnership to rid the world of those they decide "need to be dead." Both a steamy romance and a cyber- thriller, My Immaculate Assassin raises disturbing and timely questions about the technology and morality of "idealistic" murder, carried out remotely.
