A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
A second Michael Hendricks adventure, following on from THE KILLING KIND, which introduced the hitman who only kills other hitmen, a fascinating character with his own morality and murderous modus operandi. His battle with the Council, a shadowy set of individuals who control all the organised crime in America, continues, after a viral video of a seemingly terrorist attack on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco reveals that a well-known federal witness presumed dead might still be alive. Alongside Charlie Thompson, a junior female FBI officer, with a strong interest in his activities, Michael, now involuntarily saddled with a teenage assistant who is also a valuable if pig-headed computer wizz, is recruited to hunt down the elusive gangster turned informant. Fast-paced, full of twists that ingeniously come together for a thunderous finale, this is commercial thriller writing at its best and grand entertainment. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
Red Right Hand by Chris Holm
When viral video footage from a terrorist attack in San Francisco reveals that a mob informant thought dead is still alive, FBI Special Agent Charlie Thompson knows just who to contact to save her witness from certain death: Michael Hendricks. He may be a hitman, but he's not a bad guy. Teaming up with a green but determined tech whiz, Cameron, on the condition she leave him alone after the case, Hendricks reluctantly takes the job. Of course, finding a man desperate to stay hidden is challenging enough without deadly competition, let alone when that competition's shadowy corporate backer is tangled in the terrorist conspiracy playing out around them...
'Explosive and timely...Holm expertly balances weighty issues of national security with more intimate personal losses, and makes it clear that the best stories happen in the gray area between good and evil' Publishers Weekly
Praise for THE KILLING KIND:
'A ripping, twisting yarn you can read in one sitting' -- Simon Kernick, author of The Final Minute
'A story of rare, compelling brilliance, with a concept so high you'll need oxygen to finish it...This is a one-sitting, extravagant, mind-blowing reading pleasure' -- David Baldacci
'Roaring tough-guy fun' The Sunday Times
'Lean, brutal and riveting, THE KILLING KIND is the kind of novel you can't put down but also want to savour. With sharply etched characters, knifelike twists and hardboiled energy to burn, it's an utter winner, beginning to end.' -- Megan Abbott, bestselling author of THE END OF EVERYTHING
'A fast-moving thriller with a clever premise...Who will best whom is by no means obvious in this fast-moving, witty tale of good guy versus bad guy versus worse guy. Kirkus starred review I love Chris Holm. He can evoke a landslide of character in a single detail. THE KILLING KIND crackles with muscle and moxie and wit. I will read it again and again.' -- Chelsea Cain, author of Heartsick
'Pure joy...so fast-moving, so expertly arranged, every piece fitting together with a well-oiled snap, that it feels weaponized. Read it. Or else.' -- Benjamin Percy, New York Times Book Review
'Holm is terrific at rendering characters with empathy and humour...you'll want to go along for the ride - but keep that seat belt fastened' Boston Globe
