Publisher's Summary

This is the story of Ella and Lucas. Ella is touring Italy with her boyfriend, unaware that her entire family has been murdered, that her father's business dealings are questionable, and that someone is about to attempt to kill her. Lucas is a retired hitman, keeping an eye on Ella as a favour for her father. He saves Ella from her would-be killers, but a complex dance ensues, with Ella determined on revenge, and Lucas equally determined to leave that life behind, to reconnect with his former girlfriend and the daughter he's never known.

Author Kevin Wignall can do much better

English writer (although born in Brussels) Kevin Wignall is a much better author than For the Dogs indicates. This suspense thriller is very disappointing for such a talented if inconsistent, writer. I suggest that even his fans skip this one.

Very well done...

An excellent drama with a number of twists that enhance the experience. Karen does a great job of narration. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed film Hunters Prayer better <br />

Although the first half & build up was suspenseful like the movie, the climax involving the protagonist becoming a sociopathic killer was very dark and not as satisfying as the happy ending in the movie

What a waste of time!

So, this beautiful rich girl's parents and brother are executed and she soon enters the ranks of international hit men, going so far as to callously execute her two young and supposedly beloved cousins. That's after she blew up a hotel building and killed innocent victims with never a care. Oh, and the cops never come close to catching the hit men, no matter how public their murders. I suspect Kevin Wignall knows as much about hit men as I do. Which is nothing.

A bit like getting to the end and finding the last few pages are missing
