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)
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?
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.

Totally not the kind of thing I read, but having read a few more of David Wailing's books, I got this one too. Fast paced and funny, more of his dark humour in this one. Read morePublished 17 months ago by A. C. Williams

I thought this was quite a fun story, you weren't quite sure where it was going to go though a couple of times I guessed right.Published on 16 Aug. 2013 by Jamsister Becky
...but then it faded a bit for me in the 2nd half. The characters became less likeable and the plotline a bit less credible. I did finish it - and the idea was a good one. Read morePublished on 23 Jun. 2013 by Galning
I love the indie book scene. One of its strength is the sheer variety and novelty of the books you come across. Read morePublished on 1 Jun. 2013 by M. Brookes
