There are people in this world who are Nobody. No one sees them. No one notices them. They live their lives under the radar, forgotten as soon as you turn away.

That''s why they make the perfect assassins.

The Institute finds these people when they''re young and takes them away for training. But an untrained Nobody is a threat to their organization. And threats must be eliminated.

Claire has been invisible her whole life, missed by the Institute''s monitoring. But now they''ve ID''ed her and have sent Nix to remove her. Yet the moment Nix lays eyes on her, he can''t make the hit. It''s as if Claire and Nix are the only people in the world for each other. And they are-because no one else can really see them.

Editorial Reviews

"Day after day, Claire walks through life largely unseen. Then one day she finds herself in the crosshairs of an assassin''s gun. Nix is a ''nobody,'' an excellent assassin who takes out individuals dubbed dangerous by the Society. But his perfect kill record ends when he and Claire encounter each other. They join forces to discover why Nix was sent to kill Claire and whether the previous assassinations Nix carried out were actually as necessary as the Society claimed. Claire is the perfect foil for Nix, countering his strong, action-oriented mindset with a more reflective approach to problem solving. Barnes skillfully captures the internal monologues of the characters, placing the reader inside the heads of both Claire and Nix, and nicely balances that interior focus with fast-paced adventure. The novel''s imaginative mixture of supernatural elements with action and romance will appeal to a broad range of readers." -Booklist
