Overview

From Jay Bonansinga, the New York Times bestselling co-author of THE WALKING DEAD novels RISE OF THE GOVERNOR and THE ROAD TO WOODBURY.

Joe Flood is a hit man, but he has his principles: he only accepts contracts on people who deserve to be killed. And Joe has always accepted his lot. Leading a double life is just one of the costs of doing business. Now his doctor has told him he has only a few months to live and Joe figures for once he'd like to call the shots himself. Literally that is: he puts out an open contract on his own life, with a six-million-dollar reward. All his finest competitors take up the challenge. But the next news he gets is bad. The lab has made an error and Joe is in perfect health. As any good hit man knows, there's no way to call off a contest like this one. In a dark comedy of deadly errors, Joe and his stalkers set out on a breakneck, kill-or-be-killed romp that bristles with suspense.

Jay Bonansinga is an incredible author, seen through his work on the WALKING DEAD novels. However, his book THE KILLER'S GAME is by far, the best of his works I have read. In this story, a murder for hire hitman, Joe T. Flood, finds out he has cancer and decides that instead of dying hard and horrible from the disease, he puts a contract out on his own head with the winner getting $6 million. He then learns that his doctor made a mistake and the records were for someone else but the "Game" is in play so he has to run for his life. Jay's ability to develop his characters into someone you actually care about is astonishing. They are life-like and their trials and tribulations feel so real it is hard to believe they are coming from the mind of this man. My favorite character in the book, besides, Joe Flood of course, is Mickey Coogan, a child with Down's Syndrome who believes that Joe is Batman. I have worked with individuals with developmental disabilities for over 30 years and Jay got it right on the money. The story is fluid, full of action and drama with just the right amount of violence as Joe meets the folks that are set to take his life. Jay has a wonderful sense of humor which he uses to take the edge off of his story at just the right times. I can't recommend this book high enough because it is a thriller. Jay Bonansinga is a compassionate, talented writer and I look forward to reading more of his work in the near future.
