About this title:
From Booklist: He?s known only as Columbus, and he?s a contract killer. He lives only in the present; his past is a horror, and only a whimsical God controls the future. In his narrow world, he?s a star, what Russian criminals call a silver bear; he never fails, and he seems immune to the stresses of his work. But his next job will be his toughest. Kill the Speaker of the House, who is also a leading presidential candidate?and Columbus? father. Columbus narrates his own story, alternately describing his preparations to kill and a tragic youth of abusive foster homes and juvenile detention. Much of the book is engaging, and the body count is more than adequate, but ultimately The Silver Bear strains credulity too many times (e.g., in scenes of Columbus? recruitment into contract murder and in the number of times he is shot but still makes his getaway). But foreign rights have already been sold in England, Italy, and Germany, and this one is likely to attract a lot of attention. Not a bull?s-eye, to be sure, but still worth a look. --Thomas Gaughan
