The Killing Kind by Chris Holm [djinn24]
Larry is back with a review of Chris Holm newest series opener The Killing Kind.
A fast paced, page turning adventure that keeps you riveted, this action/suspense defines the genre – Larry, The Founding Fields
This was definitely a page turner of an action/suspense book, never giving you an opportunity to want to put the book down. It feels as if it has a faster tempo then Chris’ first books. Honestly I can see this being a one sitting read if you have the time, keeping you absolutely riveted.
The lead character, Michael Hendricks is a likeable guy, even for a hired killer, a true and absolute badass. The rest of the supporting cast is there, but only a couple that really stand out. Lester Meyers who is Michael’s right hand man and former operator. He is a tech nut, the guy behind the computer who keeps Michael from being picked up on camera. The other is Special Agent Charlotte Thomas, a badass FBI agent with a take no crap attitude who is hunting ‘the ghost’. Both of them are featured in the book, but they are definitely supporting characters.
This book, the start of a series, is a departure from what I originally knew Chris for, the supernatural mystery/thriller Collector series (Dead Harvest, The Big Reap, Wrong Goodbye) and honestly the change suits Chris well. This book is one to definitely keep on your radar as a book worm if you are a fan of action or suspense. The worst part about the book was having issues putting it down, call me weak but I needed sleep, and this book didn’t want to let me!
This is an easy 9 out of 10.
