Colin O'Brien is a normal guy living in Southern California. Unfortunately for Colin, he gets mistaken as a famous assassin and is asked to carry out a hit. Common sense would usually dictate to most people to just walk away, but when you are offered $1,000,000, as Colin puts it, it "can really skew your prerogatives in life".
Colin falls into the deep end of the criminal underworld, being chased by feds, grumpy Russians and seemingly the angriest mall staff in the western hemisphere. It quickly transpires though that there is much more behind the hit that the mysterious Monica Stafford wants Colin to carry out than she is letting on.

Lots of action. An enjoyable escape story that does not pretend to be anything else.
A book really has to capture me early to keep me reading (likely my ADD kicking in). Usually I read autobiographies with violence, drug overdoses and death involved because that is what keeps me interested. Well much to my pleasant surprise Hired To Kill had a similar "pull" for me. The second night I picked it up I couldn't put it down until I finished. I really enjoyed the plot and the pace in which the story moved. I didn't find myself thinking it was moving too slow and at times I felt like I was in the story with Colin. The author knows how to keep an audience captive and I am looking forward to reading the next chapter in Colin O'Brien's life
