Crews spins a Mafia-yarn with very little in the way of the supernatural category it's listed in. I was almost done with it when the author made a crucial, amateurish mistake: he made the protagonist unredeemable. Sure, we knew he was a hit-man, but his actions spoke louder than the "love" that supposedly drove him. I have to at least have some connection with a protagonist, even if he's a bad guy. Take "Sandman Slim," for example. He's been to hell itself, enjoys violence quite a bit. But ultimately, he's still half-angel, making him do what he does for good. Even the serial-killing Dexter works for the side of justice. Crews' characters are stereotypes, not worth your time.
