Killer

The final book in the acclaimed ‘man out of prison’ noir trilogy.

Leonard March walks free from jail after fourteen years’ hard time served after turning state’s witness against his Mafia boss Salvatore Lombard. It’s only after Leonard is sentenced that the public learns that he was a Mob hitman with eighteen deaths to answer for.

Leonard is released to public outrage and media furor. He spends his time working as a janitor while looking over his shoulder, fearful of a vigilante attack or revenge hit from his former colleagues. At sixty-two and with plenty of time on his hands, he is at an age when most men grow reflective and attempt to understand their mark on the world. But for Leonard, while the threats to his safety are not imagined, his self-reflection may pose the greatest threat of all.

Reviews for Killer

“Spare prose and assured pacing place this above most other contemporary noirs.”

Publisher’s Weekly

“This novel is everything hard-boiled fiction should be – compact, direct and disciplined, and concerned with humans rather than stereotypes. It is also, for all its violent subject matter, a quietly told story, which makes its tension all the more intense”

Mat Coward, Morning Star

“With graphic imagery and exciting twists, this novel is impossible to put down and has a surprising ending. A brilliant read.”

Aberdeen Press & Journal

“Written in a spare, terse style, and with chapters alternating between past and present, we slowly learn more about March. But even then the closing chapters present a devastating twist and shocking conclusion.”
