In Paris mercenary assassin Victor shoots fifty-eight year old Latvian Andris Ozols and retrieves a flash drive from the corpse. Mission accomplished with ease, he leaves the body in the alley and goes back to his expensive Hotel de Ponto not thinking twice about the case or client as this was another easy one. However, Victor finds his assertion false when two other hit men supported by others try to kill him at the hotel. He knows he is a target and speculates the motive is on the flash drive, but who remains unanswered. He survives the Paris assault barely and flees deeper into the content, but is being followed as other attacks to eliminate him occur. He knows he is embroiled in some sort of espionage scenario that leads to Africa where all converge on Victor and the flash drive. Filled with twists mostly caused by double and triple crosses, thriller fans will relish the action-packed The Killer which never stops for a breathing break. Victor holds the storyline together as he goes from smooth remorseless paid killer to target of other professional killers including legalized government assassins. Sub-genre fans will enjoy his escapades to stay alive. Harriet Klausner

A lot of dead guys, but still good.

Never has reading a book tired me more than reading The Killer. What starts out with unadorned killing ends up in an orgy of battle,with every detail lovingly conveyed by the author, Tom Hinshelwood. His efforts in creating this book must have been awesome, as he really seems to know not only his weapons, but the use and misuse of them. Each assassination is carefully choreographed. Hinshelwood puts no mustard on his hot dog, and his killer has no edge of sympathy about him. So it''s a bit of tough going, reading a killer book without anyone to root for. We eventually learn of the CIA's involvement in the story, and none of those characters are folks you'd want to take home to dinner either. But, the author does keep the reader tagging along, if only to see how it all turns out. There is some reward then, when all of the killer characters end up in Tanzania, and the battle of battles begins. That choreography I mentioned is nowhere better than here, when assassins take after each other with gusto. And again, that attention to detail, so prized by the author, requires the reader to stop and take a breath as the action is so heavy and convoluted that you can only read slowly to make sure you are getting it all. Why finish such a tedious novel? Gun lovers, soldiers (of fortune and not) may find it an easy read. But for myself, I admired the creativity and choreography, and even cared slightly for the killer at the end, but not much. Finishing it was its own reward, although I will point out that the author's ending leaves the door open for many more battles to come.
