I wasn't too sure whether this was my sort of book when I picked it up but I actually really enjoyed it. It was easy to get into and kept me interested throughout. There were plenty of little twists and turns, the characters drew me in and the book wasn't too long. I won't give away any spoilers and I see little point telling you exactly what it is all about as you can read that from the blurb contained in the advertisement. What you really want to know is whether it is worth buying and that is a very definite yes! Plus for this price, it is hardly going to break the bank! Ideal read for this snowy weather, pour yourself a drink, snuggle down and get reading!

I read a short story based on the character in this book a while ago inHearts and Arrows and was impressed by the concept, which was what made me pick this one. It is a fresh and entertaining read with a strong sense of irony and a hidden layer of depth. The character, the relationship assassin i s a hardcore honey trap. Paid to break or make the relationship in question. Morally the theme is one that I could debate about all night. How many people/cheaters would succumb to the honey trap if they weren't presented with the temptation in the first place? A honey trap is supposed to make the person succumb to their cunning wiles. The story becomes a little fun chic lit, but bear with it. Once you get past that tiny bump the author then descends into a fascinating psychological area of identity. The assassin has many faces, it is almost like multiple personalties with the real person far from sight. Very entertaining read.

I picked this book up at a time when I just needed a bit of escapism from the real world and boy, did this book suit that brief!
I got engrossed in it from the word go and really enjoyed the journey it takes you on.
Never before have I loved and hated a main character in equal measures!. I went from wanting him to succeed to wishing he would get some comeuppance. From hoping that he will succeed in a relationship to wishing he would succeed in breaking up others!!!
I was laughing out loud in parts and on the edge of my seat in others just wanting to know what happens.
The scene towards the end of the book in the kitchen (I won't give too much away as don't want to spoil it for anyone) was really powerful and gave understanding as to why this person does what he does.
I thoroughly enjoyed this read and would urge anyone to give it a go. Will definitely look out for more from the author(less)

By the author of `Fake Kate', `Bang: the memoirs of a relationship assassin' is original, fast-moving contemporary fiction for today. Very well-written in the first person, it conveys present day morality and media hype in a perceptive fashion, showing how shallow characters can delve to ever deeper depths to achieve their own ends at the expense of others.

Pacing is excellent, with plenty of action - some hilarious, some dangerous - alternating with periods of internal dialogue that, far from being boring, are insightful and sympathetic.

On the surface, the premise of this story is clear. If you are tired of your husband/wife, contact Infidelity Ltd and employ Scott Rowley to prove your spouse is cheating on you, even if they are not. Scott is a relationship assassin, prepared to go to any lengths to prove a partner's infidelity, including manipulation, charm, lies and seduction. Using his chameleon-like ability to become whoever the target desires most, his success rate is phenomenal. Until, that is, he starts to break his self-imposed `rules', including never breaking up a relationship where even one of the partners is still in love with the other, never working for a third party, and never, ever getting involved. When Scott meets Becky, a target engaged to be married, he finds himself stretching his own rules to breaking point.

Underneath the surface, this book is about identity and what it means. Is Scott simply a versatile actor using his talents to make money from unprincipled people prepared to pay to get out of their marriage, or does it go deeper? Does he become the characters he plays and who is he really?

After reading a good review of this book by another ebook writer, I thought I would give it a try. I was hooked straight away. The characters were believeable and you've probably met people just like them. It is laugh out loud funny at times, and sometimes very dark humour invades. The book was well worth it and kept me reading, enough that I'm on my third time reading it. looking forward to more from the author.

This is a review of Bang (Memoirs of a Relationship Assassin) a story by David Wailing

Once again David Wailing presents the reader with a fast paced and interesting tale, this time about a man whose job is to (in his own words) 'kill relationships stone dead'. Scott Rowley, the protagonist, uses a variety of 'masks' to present himself as different characters to his victims. Often these characters have recognisable origins, for example 'Simon Templar', 'Jack Carter' and real-life porn star 'John Holmes', though each has little or nothing in common with their namesake, other than just their name.

Scott works to his own 'rules'. He never gets involved unless he believes the relationship is already compromised, but soon he begins to question the motives of those who are providing him with work. Add to this the addition of a female version of himself, and a job where they have to break up a celebrity couple, and the action really starts.

All of Mr Wailing's stories revolve around relationships, and this is no exception. It has everything, action, fun, pathos, sex, laughter and tears. A truly rollercoaster-ride from beginning to end. 5 Stars.
