5.0 out of 5 stars Never Slows Down, June 14, 2014
This review is from: Gani & Sean (Paperback)
First off, there are no “good guys” in this novel!Gani and Sean are assassins. Gani is the guy and Sean is the girl. Both of them have, at one time, worked for Kristoff Koczella, a drug kingpin from Chicago. As this crazy, fast-paced thriller opens, Sean is on assignment from Koczella (known not-so-affectionately as “The Cock” by his employees) to kill Gani, because he thinks Gani has stolen product from him.
The problem is, Sean was once trained by Gani, and, when she realizes who her target is, is unable to complete the job. She misses on purpose, and he gets away. Koczella immediately puts a hit out on Sean, as well as another hit on Gani, hiring someone simply known as “The Voice.”
Inevitably, Gani and Sean team up against The Voice, as well as against Koczella.
I honestly had a difficult time putting down this debut novel by R. Jack Winter. The action is fast-paced; it hits the ground running and barely slows down. Koczella is a villain to be feared and despised. If he even as much as suspects someone of tampering with his “product,” he will kill them.
I can’t decide if I am happy or disappointed with the ending of the book. In a way, it’s inevitable, as the story unfolds. I won’t spoil it. But it’s a bit of a surprise. It also seems to lend itself to a sequel. Right, Jack?
