This book fleshed out El Rey - the assassin. It gives background to how he became so cold in carrying out murder for hire with out a second thought. The things he sees and his own personal tragedies shaped what he would ultimately become.
I always like Dick Hill. He is an excellent narrator, I found these books by searching for books he has read.
Without spoiling it for anyone yes. when Jasmine tells what happened to her after the murder of her father.
Really good book, fast paced, brutal at times but believable. I highly recommend this book. If you're looking for something different in this genre you've found it!
yes takes a bit to really get the flow of things
Basically kept my attention
yes the obvious one raising issue of "mercy" act
A less ridiculous story
Like a diamond in a gravel pit Dick Hill is the only value in this waste of time
It is just a flawed premise .An assassin but certainly not as well written as Mark Greaney's or Tom Wood's assassins
How this gets 4 stars is not a surprise. Look at James Patterson silly inaccurate rubbish but always a best seller.
"An okay narration. Still enjoyable"
An okay narration. I wasn't all that keen on the narrator. He sounded a lot older than the character and really slowed the pace down in places for me. I would've loved a more fastly paced story. Still enjoyable.
