He wants out and he wants to live to tell about it, problem is you can't just walk away from the mob. Even though Amos did some pretty brutal things, I found myself going back and forth between liking him and not liking him. This was a complex story due to the fact that the various characters, including a superstitious bounty hunter, all had the

    Fast paced thrill ride!

    "Free To Die" centers around Amos who has been a mafia hit-man/enforcer for 29 years, he knows it's only a matter of time before he becomes a liability. He wants out and he wants to live to tell about it, problem is you can't just walk away from the mob. Even though Amos did some pretty brutal things, I found myself going back and forth between liking him and not liking him. This was a complex story due to the fact that the various characters, including a superstitious bounty hunter, all had their own agendas, with a common goal of staying alive. To sum it up, "Free To Die" was an action packed, page turner!
