Editorial Reviews

Review

"'The Kill' is a fast-paced action thriller with a unique lead character. Overall, I found the writing, including narrative and dialog, to be crisp. It's well-written and keeps the reader on the edge of the seat, turning pages." -Editor, Robb Grindstaff

"I cannot believe how good this was. The writing is sound. The story is fantastic. I actually see this novel as a movie. This is one of his best to date." -Author Laura Roberts

I just recently started reading books by Jonas Saul. Boy was I missing out. I started with the Sarah Robert series and moved on to everything else that Jonas has witten. I was lucky enough to receive a free copy of THE KILL from Jonas. After two days of reading I am done. Disappointed only by the fact that I reached the end. Constant action and suspense. As with the other series that Jonas has written it kept me attached the entire time. I would recommend this and any other books that Jonas publishes. Even though I received a free copy of this book for review, I also purchased it online from Amazon. If you have not read this author before START. You don't know what you are missing.

This novel has a lot of potential. The idea of a man with devastating phobias rising up to fight the mob is an exciting idea. However, the author handles it poorly.

The novel begins with the death of the heir apparent of a mob family. This death is caused by the hero of the novel, Darwin, although the reader does not know this yet. The problem is, Darwin has so many phobias that reasonably he should not have been anywhere near the massacre that Vincenzo Fuccini has just survived. Darwin is afraid of the dark and it is dark outside. The author suggests that Darwin braved the dark to attend a group therapy session he thought was going on in an abandoned airplane hangar outside of Toronto. Okay, reasonable enough. However, why would a therapy session be held in such a remote area? And didn't Darwin see the burning vehicles, the dead bodies, and the other evidence of the massacre before he got close enough to kill Vincenzo? Didn't he hear gunshots? Who in their right mind would drive toward gunshots? Especially when a bullet has just gone through his windshield. I'm sorry, but I am sure even a frightened man can tell the difference between a bullet in his windshield and a pebble. And who would stop once reaching this massacre, especially after just running down an armed man? Especially a man with phobias.

As the novel continues, the reader meets Darwin's new wife, Rosina. Rosina is a beautiful, simple city girl. Rosina believes her new husband to be a quiet, mild-mannered writer. Rosina supposedly does not know the mob is after her new husband until she boards a plane for Greece and reads in a letter that her man is sending her to Greece alone to protect her. There does not appear to be further explanation. So what does she do?

I am a HUGE Jonas Saul fan, I have read every book.. I don't have to see what the book will be about, I already know it will be good. This book was on the go from the first page. Jonas keeps you on the edge of your seat woundering what is going to happen next. I look forward to his next book... 5++ Stars!!!

I am an American and think of my Canadian neighbors as among the most fair, send nicest people on the planet. This book acknowledges that.
Okay so you have an Italian mob out of Toronto. A normal (well close anyway) young Canadian writer accidentally runs over and kills the Son's dirt bag of a son. What follows is mafia revenge/blood feud. Nothing unusual there. Young Canadian destroys mafia family. Wait! What? Canadian! How? The answer is what makes this book. Paul's answer its the author's strength. I thought some of the mafia violence was over the top. This is part of a trilogy which I intend to read, in fact already have begun #2.

I started reading Jonas Saul's Sarah Roberts series and quickly became a fan. With his creation of Darwin, a simple guy who got into things way over his head, he has another great character that I was rooting for. Along with the non-stop action of Darwin against the Mafia, there is humor here and there and something to give rise to a smile. Through adversity we see Darwin's simple thoughts on something as mediocre as Starbucks. I look forward to reading another Jonas Saul book and perhaps find Darwin in one of those..

I like to see what others think.
Most liked this book. I found it amusing, but unbelievable.
The hero (who in real life is an author) suddenly takes on the mob and kills all the hit men. How? He has a phobia that sends him into a rage.
Sorry, after he bumps off about 5 hit men, I ran out of disbelief.
Even the FBI is in on it, and he gets them too.

Now, the good part: It was free, and it was a one day read.
Not enough for a glowing review.

Please authors, I'm dying for a great read. I hate writing bad reviews.

This book is really good & amazingly scary because I know people who in the mafia. They are family oriented but will kill one of their own for small infractions. They do not think twice about that. However, a outsider kills they go crazy. They have crazy values. That is what is so crazy about this book. The guy gets run over because he walks in front of a car & fires. Cars do not stop on a dime. It was his fault he got hit. The Mafia, Italian or Russian or punk gangs have the same mind set, kill for fun & retribution. Do not miss this book it is a good one.

This is a Mystery/Thriller with a ribbon of crime family throughout

The day several crime families meet turns out to be an unlucky one for Darwin. He has enough problems with all his phobias and the big man won't understand that it was all an accident.

Overall, I liked the story, but there was so much violence that I had to close my eyes at times. As I read on, I could tell it seemed necessary to the plot. While this book may not be for the squeamish, it may suit others just fine.

Warning: This is for Mature Audiences due to Graphic Violence, Adult Language, and Sexual Situations.
