Product Description

Product Description

No easy answers. No big international spy secret bank accounts. No superheroes or magic.

Just her wits, guts…



And a very large gun.



All Kim wants is the job she's worked hard for. Both as a teen & young adult, she's kept her nose to the grindstone, dreaming of the promotion she'll receive someday. But when her boss McIntyre throws her out on her ear instead, she begins dreaming of revenge. She hires Cole, a psychotic hitman who's also been dispensed with by the same boss. Left crippled by McIntyre's security guards, Cole tells Kim that the only way they'll be able to pull off this hit is if she's there with a gun in her hand as well. Before she knows what's happening, Kim is training to be a professional assassin, with everything – including her own life – at stake. Because she's only going to get one chance to pull it off...

Fans of action thrillers with a smart, tough female protagonist taking the lead will find a lot to like in the Kim Oh Thrillers. Teen & Young Adult readers will know just how she feels, as she fights to stay alive – and win – in a world filled with crime, suspense and mystery. Each book is a YA thriller that will capture readers of all ages.

If action adventure is your taste in fiction, with just a bit of dark fun, make a date with Kim Oh now. This is a thriller series with a twist!

I had a difficult time getting my head into this book. I find the author lacked attention to particular details in this story. I find there were not enough details being described to give us a feeling for the story. I found it was slow reading because I often had to read the same paragraph over again just to get the feel of the main character in this story. The was not enough action for me in this book. But the author was not bad. Just not my style I guess.

HASH(0x9fc76c30) out of 5 stars Like the pilot of a TV series I'd DVR every week Nov. 2 2011
By mwb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Ordinarily I probably would have let my eyes skip right over the first Kim Oh book, thinking that this sort of acerbic kick-ass-action-thriller series was "not my kind of thing." And ordinarily that's true -- but in this case there's K.W. Jeter in the byline and that's a solid selling point for me. Plus, at $0.99 right to my Kindle, this was a likely low-risk / high-return reading investment. Moreover, my wife had been bemoaning, rightly, the lack of female action heroes she could sink her teeth into -- you know, without the usual formulaic plot goo of trite romantic subplots injected like peanut butter into the story's arteries -- and on that score KIM OH: REAL DANGEROUS GIRL looked like one of those "good reads" we'd both enjoy.

Right on all counts. Our no-nonsense narrator, young orphan Korean-American Kimmie, a veteran of the Child Protective Services system, grows from a "Little Nerd Accountant Girl" in a routine cubbyhole job to an independent, confident, competent, professional killer (with a heart of cool gold, of course). She's small and not what you'd call threatening-looking. But she's sharp and determined and street-smart and feels authentic, convincing, in that way so many other cool action heroes don't -- someone you'd like to follow through as many adventures as she's willing to tell us about.

It's a fun, light, quick read, and at this price you can't beat the bang/buck ratio. The snappy story plugs the great old hardboiled pulp traditions firmly into the 21st century as smoothly as a USB port, and reminded me favorably of when I used to read John D. McDonald and Mickey Spillane and Raymond Chandler by the tall stack. And if you've ever had a revenge fantasy about getting back at a REALLY rotten boss, this is a book for you.

Time and again throughout REAL DANGEROUS GIRL Kim narrates the action in movie terms, as if she's directing an action-thriller in her head as she lives it. It's a movie I'd love to see. Now that I think about it, REAL DANGEROUS GIRL feels like the pilot of a TV series, or a series of 90-minute TV movies, that I'd make "destination" viewing every week.

So, yes, my wife and I both enjoyed this one. Which makes this Kindle edition extra handy, because (in a fun conceit) Kim herself provides direct-download links to her next two books. We clicked and got them on the spot while the reader high was still strong. I have no idea how many KIM OH books the series will eventually have, but it looks like I've now got another tall-stack jones.

HASH(0x9fc76c84) out of 5 stars Great story, but incomplete. May 8 2012
By c9cREVIEWS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Kim is a pint-sized accountant working hard and doing her best for her ungrateful boss, whilke looking after her wheelchair-bound brother. When she is disprespected one too many times, she seeks advice from the bosses hatchet-man.

One Ninja motorcycle, a 357 Magnum, and some training from Cole later and she is ready to change her life.

I got this book for $.99 from Amazon. Not because of the price but because I was pointed toward this author by a (still) respected person whose blog I follow. The concept sounded good and I was looking forward to reading all three titles in the series.

But when I finished this one I realised that it was incomplete. The writing was good, no problem there. It just didn't end where I thought it should have ended. I suspect the ending I want is at the end of book 3.

I realize that we are in a period of turmoil while everyone works out what is going to work and what won't in this new world of publishing and e-books. This book is an example of the trend of taking a whole and cutting it in to pieces, so that you end up paying what the author wanted originally for the whole, but at a more palatable cost. Not quite serialization.

For me the problem was that it seemed like a cynical way of getting the money out of my pocket. Perhaps I mis-read the blurb and the serialization aspect was there for me to see, but I just didn't see it. This might be a way for me to consume e-book content one day, but not right now. I won't be consuming parts 2 and 3 unless they are on sale. If only this had been a whole story unto itself ...

I give it '4' for being a good story and writing, and '2' for not being a whole story. Average score '3'.

Disappointed.

I read the Kindle edition (Editions Herodiade, October 2011, 172p), which I bought from Amazon.com.

HASH(0x9fc76f60) out of 5 stars Oh Kim, Are You For Real Jan. 6 2013
By Terry E. Riley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really like Jeter's writing. He's a good story teller. I found him in science fiction, and then a historically set amalgam of Nazi Germany and Hollywood movies industry. Excellent! But talk about you unexpected juxtapositions. His new series with Kim Oh as the lead character strikes off again in a different direction -- sort of noir assassin meets Hello Kitty. KO1 is a pretty good story that chronicles the transition of a young Korean girl into a Hit Girl for hire. In some repects is the the conventional trope of older mentor and young protege - think Obi Wan and Luke. In the Kim Oh instance though, I found the young woman's motivation to make the transition from normal [somewhat] person to determined killer for hire to be less than convincing. It troubled me after I completed the book. As I say, I like the author's other works, and will probably try KO2 just to see if the narrative strengthens what I see as the one weakness in the introductory story. You should try KO1. You'll likely find it entertaining. It's certainly worth its modest price.

HASH(0x9fc76e58) out of 5 stars Kim Oh 1: Real Dangerous Girl (The Kim Oh Thrillers) Dec 26 2012
By Brent Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I so enjoyed Kim Oh 1, that having finished it, I immediately bought all the other titles in the series. KW Jeter has created a wonderful, unclichéd character in Kim Oh, and proven yet again that genre writing does not have to resort to being formulaic.

HASH(0x9fc79060) out of 5 stars Oh! Kim Oh Oct. 14 2011
By Nancy Baldock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
From her physical description, you'd never think little Kimmie could be interesting, let alone dangerous. But once inside her head, you are treated to one thrill after another. I want to buy her a bottle of aspirin and some Epsom salts!

K.W. has created a unique format...a movie inside of a book. Fabulous! I'm usually conservative, but I think I'd like to have Kim as a friend. I'm starting Kim Oh 2 immediately! Dangerous job? She's up to it.
