Charles Belvedere has to die. Not killing him just isn’t working for Ross. Help arrives in the unlikely guise of a deformed Korean who speaks no English, a being of questionable species and a morbidly obese criminal so elusive nobody believes he even exists.
Meanwhile, The Boss Killers, a gang of underground assassins specialising in corporate murder, is in crisis. Their sales are plummeting as a result of a popular new competitor, a rival gang is threatening to wage war on them and a detective who insists on being good at his job is closing in on their operations. They need a fall guy.
You have to read this book! I cannot remember the last time I read a story that had me not only laughing out loud, but also anxious to turn the page and see what was about to happen. Excellent book! You will laugh, and hold your breath waiting to see what happens next. A fun read that you will not want to put down! Ross Ackerman is obsessed with getting rid of his boss, Mr. Charles Belvedere. Chief Inspector Harry Christmas is not only tired of the jokes he listens to during the holiday season, he is the only one who sees a connection with the fact that more business executives seem to die from “accidents” during the holiday season than at any other time. With a full cast of characters, you will never get bored with this story. When Ross cannot take it one more day, he reaches out to his friend that he absolutely needs to kill his boss. His friend, ever concerned about Ross, devises a better idea. Let him think he is killing his boss, via computer graphics, 3-D, real life video game. If only he knew what he had just stumbled upon. It is almost like opening Pandora’s box. I would love to give you all the details on this story, but it truly is one you need to read for yourself. I challenge anyone to read this book and tell me they did not enjoy it!
Set a few years in the past before mobile phones, tablets and virtual reality were a part of everyday life, The Boss Killers alternates between three groups of people: friends trying to help their mate out with his ambition of killing his unbelievably annoying boss, a group of London gangland bosses whose hitmen kill their targets in ever-increasingly bizarre and unpleasant ways, and the police detective trying to hunt them down. Tied up with this is the legendary lard club (a place any food lover should go) and the mysterious Mr X ... And of course all the stories get tangled up together. The story whips through at a fair pace and there are many laugh out loud moments as well as a few where I found myself closing my eyes or squeaking in horror! it's a very enjoyable read that any fan of crime novels or black humour will enjoy! Incredible to think that this is Keith Gillison's first novel - I hope there are many more to come.
