The Story Behind the Title: “The Tourist Killer”

In a recent author interview, conducted by Juneta Key, readers hear how the title of “The Tourist Killer” came about.

Here’s the question and answer:Author-1-sml-BW

Interviewer, Juneta Key: I guess even assassins need a vacation—tell us a bit about that premise.
FCEtier: I’m a loyal fan of the double entendre. I wanted a title that would be just that, so I wrote into the storyline that Claudia becomes a tourist herself before each assignment. After she’s made her plans and worked out the details of her next job, she takes a vacation. It helps her deal with the stress of preparation and clear her mind for the matter at hand.

One Response to The Story Behind the Title: “The Tourist Killer”

  1. You have a new/old fan. I so enjoy the idea of a woman assassin. Only twice before did I learn of a woman in this profession. One in The Sting and One in Prizzi’s Honor. I do believe this is a job I could have excelled in during my early years. Raising too many kids stopped my progress however and you need a steady hand which I no longer have. Oh well. I am now a follower-as if you didn’t guess. From day one, we clicked. After all, we both lived in North West, Louisiana and have much in common.
