You got me.  Hunter Shea, you really got me good.  I should have seen it coming, all of the signs were there, I just couldn’t put it all together.  What in the devil is wrong with me?!

Hunter Shea has masterfully pieced together an intricately woven story filled with symbolism, heavy subject matter and a killer ending (pun intended).  He has done this while putting a smile on my face and giving me a few chuckles along the way.

The story revolves around Peter Blades, and his ever-growing and increasingly shocking list of hits.  What made this murderous bastard likable was how he didn’t want to do it; this wasn’t Peter Blades, he was the family man, the nice guy, not some cold-blooded killer who knocked people off because of a text message.  I could put myself in his shoes, except for the rampaging murderer part, or maybe on second thought, I could have a couple of beers with him.  Hunter Shea has given me a dark hero and the average guy all wrapped up into one.

I Kill in Peace is fast paced and non-stop.  It is filled with bad guys who deserve to die, and some colorful ways for it to happen.

I have to give some extra props to the author.  He brought so many things together in a small package.  And on top of it all, I am still stuck on the fact that I didn’t see that freight train coming.  When an author can trick you like that, he deserves some extra credit.  The only thing I wanted was more.
