The Hitman’s Guide to House Cleaning


20 Great International Mysteries, February 2012

Toxic is a hitman working for the Croatian mob in New York. He has a record of 66 perfect kills for the mob until he accidently kills an undercover FBI agent. Forced to go on the lamb, Toxic kills and takes the identity of a man in the airport bathroom who turns out to be a TV evangelist known as “Father Friendly,”  bound for Iceland, a country with a zero homicide rate and where he can’t buy a gun, may not be the best place for a professional killer. In Iceland, not much killing takes place but hilarity ensues as Toxic attempts to adjust to his new life among the Icelandic people. Many readers will enjoy the sophomoric humor popularized in the Hangover movies. A character-driven plot where readers will check their moral compasses as they find themselves rooting for Toxic.
