"Kill/Off is a tightly written, dark descent into the world of the contract killer. I haven't been sucked into the mind of a murderer so convincingly since Theodore Sturgeon's Some of Your Blood. John F.D. Taff hits this one out of the park." ~ Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Dead City

"A captivating story of murder and conspiracy, Kill/Off will keep you nervous, questioning and, more importantly, entertained until the last page. John F.D. Taff really knows how to deliver!" ~ Ann Hale, Horror Editor, Pop-Break.com

"Fast, sharp, elegant, and darker than a pool of blood in a gloomy alley at midnight, Taff's Kill/Off packs everything that's great about crime fiction while simultaneously avoiding its clich├ęs. This is a sleek noir made up of danger and tension and written in an undeniably commanding voice. As a bonus, death and blood come easy to Taff, one of the best short story writers in the horror genre, so crime fiction fans who enjoy an extra dose of brutality are in for a treat." ~ Gabino Iglesias, Author and Reviewer at OutoftheGutterOnline.com

"John F.D. Taff is an artist telling stories with bullets. His crisp, staccato style targets a reader in its crosshairs obliterating any chance of escape. Kill/Off is an exciting, dark adventure that will make your heart race and palms sweat hoping it is merely fiction." ~ Joe Schwartz, author of The Games Men Play

"Accomplished horror author John F.D. Taff takes the reader on a journey into the murky world of contract killers, exploring their motivations and the guilt associated with their deeds. Pitting assassin against assassin, 'Kill/Off' is a tense story replete with murder, deceit, greed and a twist on a significant event in American history; and is truly the thinking man's action-thriller." ~ John Milton, Horror Reviewer at AndyErupts.com

    I had no idea what to expect from Kill/off after reading the gre

    I had no idea what to expect from Kill/off after reading the great collection of horror from John FD Taff in his book Little Deaths.  I knew he had the ability to deliver great short creepy tales and found Kill/off to be a very well done novel.  He hooks you from the start with a woman being followed and how she gets out of a situation that had me on the edge of my seat.  The story continues with a man in a bad spot in life trying to do the right things all the wrong ways who becomes a killer.  The story has some great twists and turns and a few great gotcha moments that come out of left field.  Even the end has one more unexpected turn that caught me by surprise.  This is a great read and a great story filled with suspense that will have you turning pages.  This is second book I have read by this author and I am hooked and will be on the lookout for what he has coming next.
