The characters, good and bad, are convincing and interesting. There is action and suspense and a little humor and an almost love affair. The Hitman's Lover is a very entertaining read. Reviewed by the author of The Children's Story, A Novel Not for Children (about good and evil).
I was tempted to give this book 5 stars, but I found a few typos and continuity errors that I don't think should have made it to publication. I know these are hard to get rid of for an indie published writer, and they certainly didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book. Also they're easily fixed.
The Hitman's Lover is not fine literature by any stretch, but it is creative and engaging and a rocking good read. It ought to be judged on how well it succeeds at what it sets out to do. In my estimation that is to entertain, and on this basis, it succeeds very well indeed. I read it almost straight through. I had to put it down in the middle because my eyes were getting bleary, but I sure didn't want to. If I could, I would have stayed up all night to finish it. It's that good.
I'm glad to see that this is part of a series of Jack Scully adventures. I look forward to reading the next one.
2.5 stars rounded up cause it's Friday and I'm in a good mood today...
I read the blurb and thought I was in for a treat. The plot appeared interesting on first glance, but got sillier and more implausible the more pages I read. Attorney Jack Scully's Aunt Maude needs his help. She was arrested after gunning down a policeman coming to her door because based on a conversation she overheard, she knows that he's secretly a hitman sent to kill her and hired by her no-good, piece-of-a-man husband, Teddy.
This is called a thriller, but I didn't find it to be thrilling, or even very interesting. The characters including Jack and Aunt Maude, were flat and unbelieveable. Aunt Maude was rude and incredibly annoying and Jack appeared inept. I know there are plenty of bad cops, but they must have been having a sale on them in this town because there seemed to be a million crooked cops, plotting and planning. The book wasn't terribly written, but the plotline made little sense. To each his own, but I must have read a different version of this book from the 5 star reviewers. Not recommended.
I could hardly put the book down. I don't care for unnecessary violence, and this story had only one place that chilled me uncomfortably. Even so, the scene was not out of line with the story. The characters are believable, the plot and mystery kept me guessing and wondering how things could possibly work out. Well done!
