Overview

Amos, the Mafia enforcer, wanted out.
At forty-seven – and after twenty-nine years of following orders - he knew his time was limited.
He had served his masters well, but age, and illness, and sloppiness had made him expendable.
But how to exit gracefully – and live to enjoy the freedom?
“Unlike the living, the dead tell no tales.” That was their motto. The way they did business. They left no loose ends.
Was he smart enough to find a way around this long established modus operandi?
Or was he destined to become fish food?

"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!
