I was invited to read this short story by the author. I categorize this story as ‘R’ because it contains scenes of Violence and Mature Language. The story is set in Las Vega, Nevada. The primary character is Michael Hendricks.
Hendricks is a hit man, but his targets are those who are sent to kill others. He goes to a seedy motel to meet up with his next potential client. He is involved in mistaken identity and is nearly killed for his efforts.
This was a quick read of 15 minutes for this 25 page short story. The pace was fast and the story does interest me in reading more about this character. This is the same character as in Holm’s book “The Killing Kind”. I do no think much of the cover chosen. I give this novel a 3.7 (rounded up to a 4) out of 5.
