A hitman who only kills other hitmen winds up a target himself. - Winner of the Anthony Award for Best Novel- Nominated for the Lefty Award for Best World Mystery Novel- Nominated for the Best Thriller Barry Award- Nominated for the Macavity Award for Best First Mystery Michael Hendricks kills people for money. That aside, he's not so bad a guy. Once a covert operative for a false-flag unit of the US military, Hendricks was presumed dead after a mission in Afghanistan went sideways. He left behind his old life-and beloved fiancEe-and set out on a path of redemption...or perhaps one of willful self-destruction. Now Hendricks makes his living as a hitman entrepreneur of sorts-he only hits other hitmen. For ten times the price on your head, he'll make sure whoever's coming to kill you winds up in the ground instead. Not a bad way for a guy with his skill-set to make a living-but a great way to make himself a target.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Will Collyer's no-nonsense voice is a great choice for this mystery about people who lurk in the shadows. At the heart of the story is Michael Hendricks, a former off-the-books, special-ops soldier who is thought to be dead. But Hendricks is alive and seeks to atone for his many sins by killing other assassins and saving those he deems worthy--for a price. Soon he finds himself a target as well. Collyer's gruff, straightforward approach fits a story of lost souls who inhabit both sides in this violent world. Some of his civilians, especially females, don't come across as fully credible, but most are tangential to the story. Time and action fly by in this riveting production.
