This is my second title from author Peter J. Thompson. The premise intrigued me; a hit man who gets assigned to his own hit. Crazy, right? The story was a psychological masterpiece as Charley tries to decipher who put a hit on him. His wife? His best friend? His sister? Or his dad? The list is not that long but it certainly presents its challenges. I was thrilled with the story until the end. It seemed anticlimactic and rushed.
As the narrator, Gary Tiedemann was methodical in his portrayal of Charley. Tiedemann embodied the character and it resonated with me.
Peter Thompson grew up on the east side of Chicago, in the shadow of the steel mills where the air was sooty and smelled of sulfur. His life wasn’t always so gritty, but the grit and realism finds its way into his thrillers. He has always loved stories of every kind, and one of his joys is finding a way to get inside character’s heads, seeing the world as they see it and feeling their triumphs, pain, and fear. He visualizes his characters when he writes, and they are larger than life in the big screen of his imagination.
Before pursuing his passion and becoming a full-time author, he tried his hand at everything from factory work, breaking cement in a construction crew, running his own pizza shop, and he was a well-regarded presence in the mortgage industry for nearly thirty years. When he isn’t writing, Peter loves, spicy food, live music, and exciting and thought-provoking books and movies. He is a fitness buff who loves to spend time with his grown sons and is looking forward to traveling the world and seeking adventures with his lovely partner.
