Assassination can be a messy business, especially if you’re having a bad day.
Dan Jones is the ultimate problem solver, the hitman for crime boss Fliss Bauer.
Fliss has a rival, Kalindra Dallin. She runs a particularly unpleasant planet. Dan is told to arrange her demise. It’s just another job; until a random event means that it all goes horribly wrong.
To save his skin, Dan is forced to try again, only this time he has to work with a partner. He doesn’t want to but it’s the only chance he’s going to get; if he wants to put things right.
Can the hitman and the thief get the job done, more importantly, can they keep each other alive?
Beta Readers comments,
“Richard’s latest book, The Hitman and the Thief, takes the reader on a twisting journey through different worlds. The action moves swiftly, with unexpected twists and turns. As usual, Richard’s excellent technical knowledge conveys a gritty reality with ease. This is a fun read, hard to put down and I sure hope there is a sequel in the making.“
Richard Dee never disappoints me. The Hitman and the Thief is action packed-entertainment. I absolutely loved it. I am obsessed with this book, honestly. I dont want to write a review, I want to pick it up and read it again!
Twists and turns await readers on this adventure. I absolutely love the world building. It felt like I was transported to a different world and was watching the story unfold instead of reading it.
So difficult to put this one down. I highly recommend giving it a shot! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go re-read it!
