Review:

Pure joy...so fast-moving, so expertly arranged, every piece fitting together with a well-oiled snap, that it feels weaponized. Read it. Or else. -- Benjamin Percy * New York Times Book Review * Roaring tough-guy fun * The Sunday Times * Lean, brutal and riveting, THE KILLING KIND is the kind of novel you can't put down but also want to savour. With sharply etched characters, knifelike twists and hardboiled energy to burn, it's an utter winner, beginning to end. -- Megan Abbott, bestselling author of THE END OF EVERYTHING A ripping, twisting yarn you can read in one sitting -- Simon Kernick, author of The Final Minute A story of rare, compelling brilliance, with a concept so high you'll need oxygen to finish it...This is a one-sitting, extravagant, mind-blowing reading pleasure with a stable of characters who come across as all flesh, bone and folly. You will never look at men hired to kill other humans the same way. You won't merely read this book, you will inhale it. -- David Baldacci

Book Description Hodder Stoughton General Division, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Michael Hendricks is not a good man. He doesn t deserve a good life. But he is very good at his job. He s the killing kind. He doesn t accept contract kills. He doesn t work for any criminal organisation. And he never kills civilians. He only hits hitters. He s not the kind of guy you call if you want to pop somebody who s pissed you off or done you wrong. He s not a guy you call at all - he calls you. And when he does, you d be advised to take his call. Because it means that someone wants you dead, and time is running out to save your life. It s not a bad way to make a living, but it s a great way to make enemies. And now both the FBI and the mafia have Hendricks in their sights, he s about to learn just how good he really is.
