Tom White lives in Brighton with a crappy job and no prospects to speak of and a next-door-neighbour who has started throwing parties at all hours. Tom doesn't like confrontation so rather than challenge the neighbour he takes a different route entirely. He commits murder.
But Tom's no criminal mastermind and this dark act hurls him into an underworld in which he learns that he is rather good at his new found talent but totally out of his depth with his new associates; two scary gangsters who could have walked straight off the set of a Guy Ritchie film, and the mysterious and impossibly sexy Stephanie, who is hiding more than her drop-dead smile reveals.
Flying by the seat of his pants, Tom muddles his way through his new career, balancing the needs of his underworld bosses, his unknowing girlfriend and his knowing-too-much best friend who shares Tom’s macabre moral compass.
Accidental Hitman is as heavy on humour as it is on thrills. Generous doses of laugh out loud comedy usher in the storyline which takes on a life – or perhaps death - of its own. As the corpses start to mount and two rival police forces aim to spoil Tom’s game of murder by numbers, it all gets a bit more serious.
