Jesus, however, is not like any hitman you've ever met before. He has, since coming over from Cuba, thoroughly absorbed American culture and can quote movies like no one's business. When he meets a girl, he can't help but quote from Casablanca. And, if you thought the author wasn't aware of Pulp Fiction, There is Jesus quoting Jules' lines from Ezekiel about the path of the righteous man and striking down with great vengeance.
What kind of a hitman gets in a discussion in a bar about whether Heath Ledger was the best Batman?
What kind of a hitman goes to twelve step meetings?
What kind of a hitman refers to himself as a smart ninja ?
The lady has a laugh like Betty Rubble.
In between all the funny cultural references is a solid, well-plotted crime thriller that is thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.
There is nothing slow or dull about this book.
So do we need yet another series about a hitman? Only if it's about Jesus Diaz. Only if it is filled with heart-pounding action and only if the lead character thinks about being a smart ninja and thinks about what Han Solo and Rambo would do.
A solid read. No doubts.
Allthough this is the second book in the series, it is a completely separate story from the first one. Bigger Than Jesus. It all also moves from the crime family milieu of the first book to a crime thriller story in this book. The writing here seems a bit sharper and more focused. But, if you like this, go read that first book, which is also a five star read
The story fleshes out more of his sordid background and origins, while giving Jesus more depth as a person and not a one dimensional character you either love or hate. I found myself loving and hating him throughout, and often changing within a chapter because of the stupid decisions he sometimes makes.
I need to read the rest of this series and see where the author is leading us... so hurry up and finish these books!
It's Christmas Eve, the perfect time to pull a job. Hey, he's gotta eat and the father of a tall blond Amazon woman wants her drug dealer taken out. Jesus has been tailing the guy for a week - well, half the time on the dealer and half watching the beautiful daughter. Is it just the sentimentality of the holidays or is he falling for Willow for real?
Things go wrong in the course of the perfect hit and Jesus finds out things he wasn't supposed to know and now he's involved in an arms trade gone wrong. Two rival factions want the goods and are willing to kill to get them. Jesus agrees to work with his new love's father to take out the heavies from one gang for a cut of the profits.
But, as always in the criminal underworld, there's the double cross and the triple cross, there are lies and there are diversions. It's going to take all of Jesus's considerable skills and cunning, and the help of a homeless vet and a large, gay bodyguard, just to keep himself and Willow alive. He'll need to clear his mind of all the drugs he's been taking and get the job done.
A quick-moving plot with lots of surprises and a clear-eyed examination of addiction (yes, the title refers to that kind of high), this is another great installment in the ongoing "Hitman" series. Looking forward to future adventures.
