Ex-hitman Larry Laughlin got out of Mexico alive, but now he’s a haunted man. The final step to laying his ghosts to rest requires killing his newly paroled father. Before he can take action, a trio of killers break into Larry’s house, and he overhears their scheme to murder his brother, Jaime. Old habits kick in, and Larry emerges the sole survivor. But while he’s gathering hidden funds to finance his plans, he’s ambushed by an abused teen named Brooklyn, who refuses to be left behind. Larry and Brooklyn set out to save his brother and complete his patricidal task, but one misstep drops yet another aching tragedy on Larry’s burdened shoulders. Nearly mad with his hunger for vengeance, Larry seeks his final nemesis in the heart of New York City. But what he finds will threaten more than just his life: Larry Laughlin damned himself long ago.


When I read the blurb for this book I got really excited. I love hitman type stories and thought this would be a good addition.

I selected correctly. The story is in first person and you know how I love first person. It is so easy to be drawn in.

The writing style felt different than my normal authors but that isn't a bad thing. One of the good things about branching out and reading new people.

Before I agreed to review this book I looked up some of the other reviews about this author and he seems to be very well liked. I can understand why.

I always love books where the main character has a bit of issues. If you like books like that too then I recommend this one. I don't think you will be let down.

4 solid stars for this book.
