Self pitying siccario

The main character spends most of the book focusing on how he was wronged and feeling sorry for himself, while trying to show that he’s hard, cold and unafraid. In the end, he sleeps through the one thing he came to this god forsaken island to do, and his love interest takes the shot, rendering him extraneous and thoroughly without purpose.
