Pierce Ambrose. That was the name of the man I'd been sent to kill. The man I'd failed to kill. I have one day left to make good on my contract before the thugs holding my sister and her son start sending me pieces of them.
Pierce Ambrose. A man with a secret I didn't uncover until it was too late to turn back, too late to give up on trying to kill him. Now, if I want to see my sister and nephew again, I have to try one last time.
My name is Mac Brennan, and this time I'm playing for keeps.

It is a good story. It is fast and fun. The writer has a good wit (if a bit repetitive). A couple plot twist were contrived. And, it was bit too short. The reader was excellent. All in all worth the credit. There are two additional books in the series not yet on Audible. I would definitely continue the series especially if Cronin does the narration.
Say something about yourself!
I wish the author stops ending this series in a cliff hanger. ***The cliff hanger to find his sister in book one ends with it UNRESOLVED here! *** The author presents 2 conflicts. One is resolved and the main one, for Mac making a pack with the demon is still unresolved.
Despite that, I will get the next one when it is released. There is action from the first to the last of the book. And ohhhhh that last action was great! He has just one day to complete his task and in 6 listening hours he is captured countless times, fall in love, chased by zombies and did not completed part of his goal from book 1. There is no down time in the action. You really get a feel that they are racing against time.
Mac has become more confident as he memories return. But a greater part of his confidence for him is his handling of his current situations; ie did he maim instead of kill? He feels guilty about withholding information from Ricky and tries to keep his feelings to himself because of it. The fact that he realizes this is a sign of a "goodness" in him and not a demon.
Ricky is a bad ass alpha werewolf who can kick the ass of a gargoyle and keep on ticking. She elaves dead or broken bodies in her wake. She is such a dynamic character. She needs her own series at least a novella on her and Mac as teens. Someone should have told Mac about having a short live span for telling half truths to a woman. He should be dead from misleading an alpha. *** spoiler *** The fact that she did not kill him speaks to their pass and current relationship.
So Ricky and Mac are kicking ass and taking no prisoners when Ricky gets into a little ***spoilers*** trouble. No that is not correct, she gets serious life threatening trouble. That is when we meet a demon hunter called Dante. He is insufferably confident and pretty much tells Mac that later, Mac will die by his hands. Yet ... That is where I will leave you.
Book 1 it was good. Book 2 is even better. I still could not be more generous with the stars. I do not like cliff hangers.
