Hitmen: Four Tales of Magick, Monsters, and Murder

Length: 490 pages7 hours


Willowbrook: a town rotted by corruption and vice. For years, the feared Boss Marcon controlled the rackets and legitimate commerce alike, but the stakes are raised when a mysterious figure—a giant of a man with a gruesome blue skull for a face—starts leaving mangled bodies all over town. The creature is silent and unstoppable, a hulking monstrosity surviving gunshot wounds and able to tear a man limb from limb. This monster is targeting Marcon’s criminal empire, obliterating hardened hitmen with ease. Is it a rival assassin...or something worse?

Part crime drama, part brutal monster action, “Hitmen” is a collection of four inter-connected novellas, spotlighting those in the monster’s path: Eli, the guilt-ridden killer who’s had a spiritual awakening; Flynn, a young boy seeking to understand the mysteries of the supernatural; Marcie, the young heiress to Boss Marcon’s empire; and Vinnie Caponi, an urban mythologist who has hunted the Blue Skull for years. Each character has a role to play in the mystery, their paths finally intersecting, leading them to their fate—facing the towering killer, once and for all.
