Maxim Jakubowski's view...

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

A fast-paced, high-powered thriller featuring a Jack Reacher with balls of added steel character who was once a contract killer for the army and rides a mighty motorcycle and plays a mean blues on his guitar, this a hoot, if a rather violent one! JJ Stoner, having shed his bloody covert past, now investigates the underworld of crime on behalf of shadowy intelligence organisations and trouble dogs him at every step, with the inevitable bar fights, sex with seductive but treacherous vamps and never a dull day. When an old army comrade with a similar background to his crosses his path again, decisions have to be taken which will affect the lives of many. Terse and stiletto streamlined and sharp as the blade of a knife.

Synopsis

A Last Act of Charity by Frank Westworth

In the Killing Sisters series, Frank Westworth has created a cast of characters that are as memorable as they are ingenious.

This, the first volume, introduces JJ Stoner, ex-contract killer turned investigator, pressured by government spooks to throw light on a series of grisly killings in hotel rooms. He suspects a man – perhaps two men – to be behind them, but cannot deduce any logical motive, nor why the bodies, or what’s left of them, are subsequently filmed and the footage transmitted to a website for more general viewing.

They are not men. They are the three sisters: Charity, Chastity and Charm. One kills, one confuses, one organises. Each of them is the one thing Stoner had never expected: a person more deadly and dangerous than himself.

About the Author

Frank Westworth

Frank Westworth shares several characteristics with JJ Stoner: they both play mean blues guitar and ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Unlike Stoner, Frank hasn’t deliberately killed anyone. Instead, he edits RealClassic magazine and has written extensively for the UK motoring press. Frank lives in Cornwall with his guitars, motorcycles, partner and cat. He also runs the website Murder, Mayhem and More which reviews books, films and tv in the crime thriller and sci-fi genre.
