Welcome to my stop on Morgen Bailey’s Hitman Sam blog tour with BOTBSPublicity 🙂
Hitman Sam is a very clever little crime novella and one that I really quite enjoyed. I read most of it on the ferry home from visiting family in Northern Ireland last week and finished it off at home. I was eager to find out which way the story would go. Sam Simpson is a very likeable, but sometimes awkward character, who I couldn’t help but warm to. He’s been made redundant and in an effort to add some excitement to his life he answers a rather vague ad for a job which doesn’t give much away at all. Once he realises he’s signed up as a trainee hitman he imagines himself as the next James Bond, but he doesn’t quite have the same knack with the ladies, which is quite funny at times!
I thoroughly enjoyed following Sam through his training and trying to manage some sort of love life at the same time. Although I had an inkling there wasn’t going to be a nice tidy conclusion I totally didn’t see the ending coming.
I look forward to reading more by Morgen Bailey.
Many thanks to the author and to Sarah @ Book On The Bright Side Publicity for my review copy.
Having been made redundant as a photocopier software designer, Sam Simpson is lured by a cryptic advert. As he learns it is for a trainee hitman, will he be tough enough to see the job through? Even James Bond had to start somewhere and Sam, as his alias Josh Bradley, looks forward to enjoying James’ lifestyle, although soon embroiled in a love triangle, Sam hadn’t expected things to get so complicated so quickly.
