Al Marsiglia's Contract Pending is a quick, easy, and fast-paced novel. While it has some fun twists and turns, there are no earth-shattering or truly unexpected events. The characters also leave something to be desired, not developing much and only remaining page-deep with dialogue that could easily be from a movie. However, Contract Pending has an exciting story-line, making it a fun page turner that will leave you hoping that there is enough time and that the wrong person will not get caught in the crossfire.
