Summary

This is my account of life as a hitman from someone who has been doing it for years. 

Hitmen commit heinous crimes virtually every day of the week and, in most instances, we don't even realise. 

I've been a killer for hire for more than 20 years now, but life as a fulltime professional assassin has never been easy. 

There have been close calls, failed attempts and a lot of looking over my shoulder. 

And now, I've decided to come clean and seek atonement for my life as a murderer and one of the most covertly dangerous men alive. 

This is an account of a life lived between our world and a shadowy underworld of criminals...a life lived under the radar of the law...a life lived in death. 

This is the story of my life as a hitman.

Give it a miss

I feel like I’ve completed a service to the public on completing this book. I’ve suffered through it so you don’t have to.

Don’t.
Just... be kind to yourself, and don’t bother.

It’s poorly written, at times eyebrow-raisingly unbelievable and other times actually reaches laugh-out-loud levels of incredulity. I don’t like fantasy as a genre, but feel I’ve been duped into reading a fantasy novel by suffering through this one.

Dear me. It was poor, and not helped by the narration. I genuinely sped up the narrator’s voice because it was grating on my last nerve and I wanted to get it over with faster.

Do not buy it.

The book is full of inconsistencies and lots of BS. He says he doesn’t want to be tracked yet he gives so much info away it could be my granny. Probably the worst book I’ve ever bought.

This is a pack of lies made up by a clown

This is absolute nonsense do not buy this pack of lies.

I suspect this clown has looked at deaths around the world and made up a narrative to fit the news.

The author even used the sas killing on the rock and revolved it to be Spanish police who shot unarmed individuals.

A total farce... absolutely no truth in this at all

Fiction Portrayed As Fact

Interesting tales but complete fantasy.
Some effort should have been made to at least attempt to make it believable.

fantastic.

gripping, maybe to the point of unbelievable. you have 'empathy'! for him and his wife as strange as it sounds. you distrust as he does, get angry with him, 'H' but you see by the ending the your emotions and paranoia have been at play just as much as his

Brilliant insight to a contract killer.

I thoroughly enjoyed this, doesn't glorify the trade, so pleased he is now settled.

Work of Fiction NOT fact

While the anonymous author did a good job of writing a basic story of a hit man as a 20+ year LE enforcement investigator I found one glaring error gave the book away as fiction. That error is that the books hitman brings the same .22 pistol to all his jobs across the globe. Even within the time period of the book it would not be possible to bring the same pistol from location to location, on planes and through customs across the globe. Had he got a new pistol at these locations it would have been possibly believed. There is a book that was somewhat famous for a time called the Hitman’s Guide to the Independent Contractor which was a guide to prospective hitmen. That book was actually written by a housewife not a hitman. I believe this book is of the same. A work of fiction not to be believed.

great book horrible narrator

the good story is ruined by the horrible vocal fry bass voice narrator. like razor blades to my ears. I really can't figure out why anybody, audible or an author, chooses grating voices like this. he sounds like a really bad overdone impersonation of Morgan Freeman. shame

Fact or Fiction? Still a great listen!

Obviously there is no way to fact check a story like this so you either believe it or you don't. Either way, it was still highly entertaining and will make a great movie some day.

Super interesting!

Very interesting book. The author takes you along with him on his story of becoming a hitman. From his childhood, to contract killings, to the end of his career as a hitman, this book covers his story.
