With the killing of a sleazy drug baron, hit man André Warner completes his final contract and heads for Geneva where he hopes to begin a comfortable retirement. Then on route to Monaco, he meets young and beautiful divorcee Gina, and finds himself contemplating a different future from the one he’d planned. But awkward questions from a nosy neighbour, and an encounter with a mysterious biker, prompt Warner to wonder if there’s something he’s missed. After a visit from the police and the threat of exposure, he’s left with difficult decisions to make, so with Gina at his side, he sets out to fulfil one last contract.
From the first page, I was pulled straight into the world of the assassin – a world of guns, exotic locations and fast cars, and whether I wanted to or not, I was already rooting for the one-man killing machine, and booing/hissing at the bad guys. Lex Lander writes about killing people like he really knows what he’s talking about. Whether this is the voice of experience or just the product of a damn good imagination, I can’t say, but his attention to detail reminded me of Frederick Forsyth, along with a chunk of that great man’s storytelling genius, too.
If you like your villains mean and your heroes handsome you’ll be right at home with this first instalment of André Warner’s adventures, but for the squeamish and scaredy-cat types out there, be warned – there’s a lot of killing, and innocent victims don’t always live to tell the tale.
This is a great start to the series and I’ll be adding Mr Lander’s other books to my to-read list very soon.
You previously reviewed my books END AS AN ASSASSIN and I KILL, vols I and II in the Andre Warner, Manhunter series.
Vol III, THE MAN WHO HUNTED HIMSELF, was published in January. Would you be interested in a free ebook in return for reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.
Hey Lex, good to hear from you.
Can you email me via my contact page (https://colingarrow.org/subscribe-comment/) and I’ll get back to you.
Forgot something. I will need an email address.
Of course! You can send it to colinngarrow (@) gmail (.) com. Thanks.
I would like to thank you for your generous review of my book, END AS AN ASSASSIN, and for posting it on amazon.co.uk.
I wonder if I could prevail upon you to also post it on amazon.com. In return I will send you a free ecopy of I KILL, in the hope that you will (a) enjoy it, and (b) also review it for amazon.
You might be interested to hear that the two titles are being published simultaneously as B-format paperbacks, and will be launched in over 300 W H Smith stores on 30 January, as part of a major national promotion.
Many thanks once again and continued success with your own books and activities.
Hi Lex – great to hear from you. I’d be very happy to post it on Amazon.com and even happier to read ‘I Kill’. Cheers.
