  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 October #1
    Billy Summers is a "good" hitman, only killing those who are genuinely bad. He decides he's had enough and needs to retire, but he gets an especially lucrative offer, which he claims will be his last job. As a result, he rescues a young woman from an assault, learns he loves writing, and discovers that, if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Sparks narrates with a quiet restraint and even pacing in a compelling contrast to the story's building suspense. While Sparks keeps Billy's voice subdued, he gives the other characters their own distinct and emotionally relevant voices; Sparks' voice is husky, but it adapts well to the book's large cast of characters. King's horror fans won't find scares in this crime novel, but it may appeal to those who enjoy the menace in The Institute or the likeable, sympathetic main character in 11/22/63. Listeners should be advised that topics of sexual assault and war experiences are detailed throughout. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
