If a movie deal hasn't been made, I'm sure there's one in the works. Though my expectations were met, nay exceeded, I still felt a loss when I turned the final pages. With his unique take on the hitman thriller, Chris Holm claims his place amongst the best suspense novelists working today. It takes real talent to make a hero of a cold-blooded killer, and Chris Holm pulls it off with style. Here's a solid gold premise: an assassin who only kills other assassins The cat-and-mouse game that follows is pure joy This novel is so fast-moving, so expertly arranged, every piece fitting together with a well-oiled snap, that it feels weaponized.
Thankfully, most so-called believers appear to be less dogmatic since they reject murdering their daughters, wives, slaves and friends as punishment for disobedience to God. They maintain their faith by cherry picking those parts in the Book which they agree with and reject the rest.
Logically, no cherry picking believer will actually go to heaven.
Christian and Islamic females, if the instructions of how to treat wives, daughters, and slaves in the Bible or Koran were to be explicitly followed literally to the letter of the 8th century, need to be ignorant, impoverished and a dependent slave to any man who wants sex anywhere anytime with anyone the owner of a religious female designates, as required in the Bible and Koran.
I have read both Books. Personally, I like being able to read, write and have a working, social and athletic life, free to roam where I please without a man outside of the bedroom, kitchen and house! I think that is why so many so-called believers cherrypick. They do not like those parts either. But if these instructions in the Good Books are really by God, I will not be the only one not enjoying the benefits of an enslaved female in heaven. Shockingly, when dirt and roots have been dug out, human bones appear.

Rock Hard - OVERKILL - The Killing Kind
Unfortunately, no. Charlie Parker has become a white-collar detective. He is feeling a little disrespected by his clients, but they pay his bills. Except for the disrespect, he is happy with being a normal middle-class individual. Sort of. It is not only that he dislikes Mercier, or that Rachel would not like him to take on dangerous jobs again, but Parker is afraid of tapping a dark place inside of himself.
Parker has a reservoir of hurt and hate created by the murders of his wife and child three years ago. Parker had discovered when a young man he was the kind of guy who runs out on a girl, specifically Grace Peltier, if she thinks she might be pregnant to his everlasting regret and guilt.
So he takes the case. Parker learns Grace was investigating a religious cult, the Aroostook Baptists. The Aroostooks had been created by a charismatic minister, Reverend Faulkner, his wife, Louise and their two children. That investigation somehow led Grace to where her body was found - the street in front of another religious organization, The Fellowship, headed by a man called Carter Paragon. While the Aroostook Baptists had mysteriously disappeared in , The Fellowship are an active concern, advertising for dollars and support.
But when Parker wants to make an appointment with Paragon to find out if Grace had spoken to him, all kinds of hell open up. A very terrible man, Mr. Pudd, begins to threaten Parker. Pudd seems to be a protector of The Fellowship. A mafioso, Al Z, contacts Parker with a different case he wants Parker to take.

Can Charlie uncover the truth behind the murders or will his connection with the afterlife ultimately The disappearance of a religious community in Maine had long since been the subject of controversy. Can Charlie uncover the truth behind the murders or will his connection with the afterlife ultimately lead to his downfall? With Every Dead Thing and Dark Hollow, Connolly spends a great deal of time getting to know Parker while also establishing a world in which his characters can live and breathe.
However, with Killing Kind, Connolly takes the characters into as dark a direction as he can. Playing up the supernatural aspects that lingered in the first two books, Connolly puts it on front street for the reader to experience. Basically, what Connolly does is infuses those supernatural elements from the first two novels and turns the volume up to eleven. Connolly very much keeps the core story in the "real world". Parkers main adversary this time around, Mr. Pudd is excellently well developed.
Using recluse spiders as a means to kill his victims, I can confidently tell you that my skin was crawling on more than a few occasions. His relationship with his girlfriend, Rachel, begins to feel the strain of his job as well as his growing connection with the spirit of his first wife and daughter.
Outside of where we find Parker in the outset of Every Dead Thing, Killing Kind and The White Road take Parker to his absolute limit so we truly get to understand what a gripping character he is.
