The Hired Gun Reviews
nstantly forgetable tale that was a challenge to read, although at times the interest level was high enough to warrnat continuation.We have an aging hitman who thinks he is being pursued by a younger man, where they have to form a partnership. And this is where it is all so confusing - the terminology of mail men and post men and so on. I had no idea what they were talking about and this made it difficult to follow.Where the book did work was on some of the thoughts and dialogues about women and relationships.Where is failed was as a thriller and now, even only a week after completing it, I have no idea of what the hell it was all about.After two attempts, I now give up on Branton.
Poor characterization, slow pacing, an ultimately predictable ending.Above all, what really bothered me, was the author's insistence on inundating the reader with frequently unclear (to me, anyway) slang. It's like he was trying to show how cool and "with it" he is, but since I often couldn't figure out just what the hell he was trying to say, his choice fell flat with me.
