How to Kill Friends and Implicate People
By Jay Stringer
A completely entertaining book.
Once I got into Stringer's style of writing, flipping chapters between different perspectives, and worked out the basis of the main characters, the story fit together like a jigsaw.
The plot was easy to follow, Fergus a hitman, about to retire, is called in to do one more job, which turns into many more. The mob is involved, so everyone is trying to rip off everyone, while eliminating the competition. Corrupt police are after their crumbs. A private investigator - Sam, is working the same case as Fergus, the police and mob, while slowly falling in love with Fergus.
The story is easy to believe, the characters, particularly Sam and Fergus come alive is the easy picture that Stringer draws.
An easy to read novel, that i managed to read in two long Sunday sessions.
