Book Description

Kindle bestselling fiction action adventure author Jack Elgos presents... The Killer III: The Final Reckoning

In the conclusion of this epic adventure trilogy, The Killer III: The Final Reckoning sees former IRA hitman Darren McCann seeking vengeance for the brutal murder of his Ma. Now going under the name of Liam O’Neil and working for the British Government, Liam knows he is ultimately just a pawn between the IRA and the Brits, and dreams of taking his Catalan mistress Montse out of the reach of both. However this dream must be put on hold until the men who signed his Ma's death warrant are killed. His quest takes him back to old comrades in the Basque terrorist training camps, his Irish homeland and military bases in the UK.

In his inimitable style, Elgos captures the political and human aspects of The Troubles in a fast paced Pulp-Fiction style action novel, while painting believable and likeable characters that draws the reader in from page one.

Reviews for The Killer:
“Absolutely great action adventure read. From the first word you are hooked.” Chris Brandler, Amazon

“Jack Elgos is a wordsmith. Characters jump out of the pages and the all action plot truly bowled me over and sent shivers down my spine. Engaging, thought-provoking while simultaneously page-turning, this is an instant mens adventure classic.” George Steptoe, Amazon

More About the Author

Jack Elgos was born in the industrial north of England. Leaving school at fourteen (because education was getting in the way of life) he set out to make his way with "a bit of this and that".

Jack is now semi-retired and lives with his long-term girlfriend, remaining stubbornly unmarried, childless and happy for quarter of a century. Together they have travelled the world, taking a chance at whatever came their way - from the strictly legal, though the definitely dodgy to the downright life threatening.
"Adult entertainment" and "import/export" are a big part of their history. If you wish to read "porn" and "smuggling" there, that's up to you.

An accidental association with some rather unsavoury characters of the Northern Irish kind provided Jack with one of the most terrifying periods of his life and inspired his Killer trilogy. His European experiences gave rise to The Reunion.
Being lost in The Atlantic during a tropical storm in a tiny boat was also pretty damn scary, he admits, but this episode has yet to find its way into his books. Maybe one day.

Though he fictionalises his characters to protect the guilty, how much of the stories are true is for the reader to guess. Jack's not telling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third Time Lucky 20 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Killer I was great. Killer 2 was fabulous. Killer 3 is absolutely fantastic. Jack Elgos writes books like Formula One racers drive cars. The pages flick by and my only regret is that this author does not have another book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars LIke a good wine, Jack Elgos has matured with age 11 Oct. 2013
Format:Paperback
This third and concluding instalment for the Killer trilogy marks a triumph of two sorts. First, Elgos has bucked a trend so often seen in serialised works of fiction by cranking up the tension across the three books rather than allowing it to dissipate, reaching a shattering crescendo by the final pages. Second, whilst already accomplished, this work is the exhilierating peak of a man at his craft. His style has matured and tightened and Killer III has all the hallmarks of a crime thriller classic, putting him in the league of the few greats that have come to define this genre. Elgos has arrived.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pulp fiction at its best 17 Oct. 2013
By Redbul
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You know when you're reading a good book when a bookmark is rarely used, if at all, or you notice with horror that the percentage read on your eReader is racing towards 100% far too quickly.
Such is the case with this trilogy of unputdownable pulp fiction at it's very best. The plot behind these books is a simple story of revenge. Darren McCann grew up on the troubled streets of Belfast in the 70s where he learned to fight and where he got rather good at inflicting violence, so much so that the IRA wanted to recruit him. Young Darren wanted nothing to do with the cause until his Ma was brutally murdered....and here the tale of revenge begins. Darren's journey through these 3 books is very violent but also very, very funny. The characters are larger than life but not so much that they appear unbelievable. The same can be said for the adventures that Darren finds himself having (including a bank robbery with ETA and jail breaks in Spain).
Darren is brutal but likeable and you find yourself rooting for him in all his escapades although you know you shouldn't be.
This last book finds Darren getting closer to exacting the retribution he has longed for for so many years....but you'll have to read the book to see if he was successful!
