"The tale bubbles along, a veritable gumbo brimming with gangsters, bitter mothers, cold-blooded killers, alligators, and a touch of voodoo." --Publishers Weekly.

Sangster doesn't seem to be able to escape his past as a hitman, no matter how hard he tries. And now it's his friend, Father Patrick, dragging him back into the life. When the head of a faded Mafia Family in Philadelphia sends the top hitman in the business, Frankie Trigger, to New Orleans to kill the Patrick, the priest goes to the only person he can think of for help...Sangster.

Can the former #1 hitman overcome the present #1 hitman and save his friend, while continuing to hold on to his newfound soul?

Praise for the Hitman with a Soul series...

"...an ambitious, fast-paced thriller that plunges readers headlong into the world of professional hitmen...author Randisi promptly throws some fresh twists into his tale that amp up the excitement and suspense all the more." --Wayne D. Dundee, author of the Joe Hannibal PI series.

"Taut, clever and gritty, under the sure hand of Robert Randisi, The Souls of the Dead is an unputdownable crime story with a rough-hewn charm. Bring me more Sangster." --Gary Phillips, author of Treacherous: Ruffians, Grifters and Killers.

"Leave it to master-storyteller Robert Randisi to come up with a soulful new spin on the hitman genre. Sangster is a unique addition to the ranks of killers for hire." --Max Allan Collins, creator of Quarry.

"As many excellent hitman novels as there have been over the years...you wouldn't think there would be much left to do with the sub-genre. But you'd be wrong, as Robert J. Randisi...proves quite handily." --James Reasoner, author of Texas Wind.
