THE GOOD KILL – A Review by Peyton Hammond

I’ve sent out many review request emails since I’ve published The Good Kill and after emailing one to Ms. Peyton Hammond the other day, I had just assumed, like most other requests, it would be a hit or miss whether it would get answered or not… mostly not as I’ve come to find out. As you can imagine if you’re an author in constant (desperate?) search of reviewers as I am, I was very surprised when I received a response from her that same day graciously informing me that she would review the book. That almost never happens. But then she surprised me again by telling me she would have the review up within a week. That never happens and I honestly, while thankful for the intent, was a bit skeptical. But I’ll be darned if she didn’t surprise me one last time by actually having the review posted within the week as advertised.

How cool is that?

Dry ice cold, that’s how cool it is.

I am a slow reader, almost as slow as I am as a writer, and I am so very envious of Peyton and others like her who posses the gift of not only being able to read a book all lickity split-like, but also being able to comprehend what has been read so quickly and then write about it in interesting ways that inform others as to why the book should or should not be read.

It truly is a gift, as it would take a month, at least, for me to read a book the size of my excessively wordy beast. And then to put a review together for it… it wouldn’t happen in a matter of days, that’s for sure.

Anyway, enough about my literary lameness and back to how very impressed I am with Peyton’s industriousness and the high quality of reviews that she so regularly posts to her well-kept, well-regarded, and interesting site, a site in which I recommend to you and all other book lovers like you most highly.

Thank you, Peyton!

Meet Dimitri, a Russian thug, who can’t quite believe his luck when he stumbles across an incompetent plot to steal millions of dollars in small denomination notes. The home-grown gang of small-town misfits he meets comprises a disgruntled armoured-car guard, his promiscuous wife, their loser of a son, and an alcoholic professor of economics. Hijacking their heist should be simplicity itself for the psychopathic killer… but he reckoned without the skills of the Special Agent assigned to hunt him down. Crackling dialogue delivered in hardboiled style.
