A Merciless Killer. A Beautiful Widow. An Innocent Child. When Jacob Menten is murdered, the battle to take his place at the head of a brutal crime syndicate will be long and bloody. His innocent wife and child are caught up in a war of succession and a tangle of secrets and lies. Who killed the old boss? And how do they hope to gain from the death and destruction unleashed? It will take all of Smitty’s talents to fulfil the dead man’s final wish and keep his family safe. But then, Smitty is a hitman of exceptional talent... From the author of the Hahn/Morales detective stories, A Killing Kiss is a muderous tale as tough as they come. "B.R. Stateham's Smitty is a classic hard-boiled noir creation." -Paul D. Brazill (author of Guns of Brixton) "A Killing Kiss is a hard blast of pure noir... mixing Dashiell Hammett with an extremely real sense of danger." -Richard Godwin (author of One Lost Summer and Confessions of a Hit Man)

B.R. Stateham is the author of several Smitty books and the Turner Hahn/Frank Morales detective stories, as well as numerous works of science fiction and fantasy. He is a sixty-five year old madman who writes in several different genres. Growing up reading the likes of Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammitt and Ed McBain in the detective genre, and Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert Heinlein, Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov in science fiction, the author’s imagination was profoundly and permanently affected. The idea came to him quite early in life that he wanted to be a writer. He’s been working at it ever since. As to whether he’s accomplished his boyhood dreams will fall upon the shoulders of those who read his stories. They will be the final decision makers on the issue.
