LoveReading Expert Review of Contract

Simon Spurrier has written for comics and so that punchy directness comes through in this, his first novel; that fast-paced, visual element which he uses in this inventive tale works beautifully.  It’s a gripping, contemporary story of contract killings and intrigue, with a supernatural twist.  From a simple start it draws the reader into a dark world just under the surface of our own.  As hit-man Michael’s inner conflict increases, so does the confusion until the startling climax becomes inevitable.  Quirky, dirty, gripping, a satisfying read.

That makes things messy, very messy, and Michael doesn`t know if his conscience has started caving in under all the pressure and he`s going mad, or if maybe he`s just become some sort of divine agent in a cosmic battle between good and evil for the soul of the entire universe. Maybe…
