Written by an investigative journalist, this book looks at professional killers, the people who hire them, and those who die at their hands. Among the true stories described are the story of the ultimate hitman, Carlos the Jackal, and how he was eventually brought to justice; the mother who hired a hitman to murder the wife of the son she could not bear to lose; and the story of Northern Ireland terrorist turned hitman Michael Boyle, whose hit on Jimmy Brindle, the infamous South London criminal, was captured on camera by police as he tried to execute his plan.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull 14 Jun 2013
By Peter W
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Book doesn't really cover subject of hitmen at all. It takes you through endless case studies of murders or attempted murders, which are mainly domestic related.
The few cases involving suspected contract killings are not well researched, offering no further insight into the psyche or methods of the hitman.
One of those books that I only just managed to finish!

2.0 out of 5 stars poor writing 24 Aug 2014

Poorly written and not that interesting, a mish mash of stories culled from secondary sources. Good for brief browsing at best

Wensley Clarkson is one of my favourite authors and thisbook was terrific.
As I said, a must for suspense readers.
