This is a great book. However, unless you're a book collector... don't waste your money. After the said lawsuit was finish between the publisher and the plantiff. The publisher dropped the copyright vowing to never publish it again. This allowed anyone to provide it free via copies; internet; etc. If you want to just read the book visit-- ftp.die.net/mirror/hitman/

All this hype is nothing but urban legend. Because the book was the subject of a law suit much of the mystery has been dispelled. Rex Feral is an obvious pen name. Rex Feral was actually a Florida housewife who was paid by Paladin Press to write "Hit Man". What prompted the lawsuit and subsequent settlement where it was pulled from sale was that a copy of the book was found among the personal effects of a man who killed a mother for hire. The family of the victim sued the publisher and the rest is history. Being a prosecutor, I was amazed at the details included in this so-called "technical manual". I don't know how much information contained therein is actually useful for someone who is planning this sort of thing. I do know, however, that the FBI doesn't "track" books or "flag" reading material other than technical and government information. In the spirit of the 1st Amendment, this is an important book that deals with a disgusting subject but it is always facinating and worth the purchase price.

The self help book Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors is a teaching device that only touches the surface on how to murder. If a student is truly wanting to know how to clean and dispose of a body there are a great many books out there that are more discriptive than this one such as "The Death Dealer's Manual" by Bradley J. Steiner, "Kill Without Joy," by John Minnery. Not to mention scores of other reading material on silencers and terrorism. If one is to study murder than one must read more than one book. Also look into forensic science as well as read about histories of such crimes. This will give you better insight into the world of the professional cleaner. All the information you need to murder is out there and not just in one book.

This book has always been meant as a joke. It was written by a professional write who just happens to be a woman, not some hit man named Rex Feral. One chapter of the book advises you to make sure you wear gloves when snacking from the victim's refrigerator. If you can't tell by reading it that it is a joke, then you deserve what you get for acting on the information given. Although one person has been arrested for using the info in this book and the publisher is being sued by the victim's family, there is no harm in the book. I think this is extremely interesting and humorous reading material.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
the material in this book is in fact quite interesting, but not to be taken seriously. the book here in digital form in missing the original images. Also on an interesting note, the original publishers where taken to court some years back as someone accused of murder said that they used this book in plan the killing. the victims family sued the publishers and they where told to stop publishing and destroy any remaining copies. i personally have read many books on the subject but i have never though "hey i am going to go out and become a killer". i was going to use this book for research, for writing, but i feel as though the book is incomplete without the pictures and therefore not worthwhile having in my collection. so i have returned my copy. i will buy it if in the future they include the pictures.

Several years back I bought one book. Just one. Wish I had bought a dozen. I paid about $14 after shipping. Look at it now! I will never look at a single shoe laying on the road side the same. My wife and I always wonder, "was it used in a murder?"

Many [people] have called this the idiot's guide to murder. Compared to the classic series "How to Kill," by John Minnery, it is to some degree. However, the book was, in fact, used as a guide in a successful contract hit in Maryland a few years ago. The perpetrators were caught only because after the hit, the contractor kept calling the victim's ex-husband demanding payment. The husband could not provide payment until the victim's estate was cleared by the courts. But the killer, James Perry, was simply unwilling or unable to understand this simple fact. His repeated phone calls to the victim's ex-husband were recorded by the police and sealed the case against both men.
So, despite claims here to the contrary, this book could be used to carry out successful contract hits...

This book is quite interesting. I would like to say from a professionals point of view that the author left quite a few things out. It is a good primer for those who have no clue, or for those who are reading purely from an entertainment perspective. All in all it just touches the tip of the iceburg on most subjects. for those seriously considering a career change, I reccomend a good book on forensic science, and more detailed books on particular areas, such as lock picking, ect. but this book is a good start.
