A target is being stalked through rain-soaked city streets. Someone is seeking JJ Stoner, independent operative, covert investigator and occasional contract killer.
Caution is advised: with Stoner you often get more than you bargain for and this is Ireland, not so very long after the Good Friday agreement. That places a lethal person in an explosive situation.
The cease-fires are holding firm, so far, but someone wants to put a cat among the peace process pigeons…

Feedback from reviewers for the Killing Sisters / JJ Stoner stories:
- ‘A fast-paced, high-powered thriller… Terse and stiletto streamlined and sharp as the blade of a knife.’
- ‘Sharp. Staccato. Smart. Lovers of long, luxurious, lyrical prose should read this to see how the other half writes.’
- ‘Gritty story-telling at its best, with graphic (but well-written) sex and a plot that fires from the hip.’
- ‘The tightly-written prose has more than a touch of the Elmore Leonard about it – sparse, sharp and often witty as well.’
- ‘There is hardly time to draw breath in this fast-moving adventure introducing a frighteningly capable executioner.’
- ‘Serial killings and strange sisters, hard as nails hit men and shady superiors, sleazy blues and sometimes seedy sex.’
- ‘A punchy and compelling tale of an ice-cold assassin, more nuanced than your average hired killer. The writing is sparse and crisp, the dialogue frequently laced with sardonic British edge.’
- ‘Clever dialogue and plenty of descriptive narrative providing context for the violence, depth to the characters and shape to the story.’
- ‘A brilliant read, along the lines of Jack Reacher.’
- ‘The dialogue is snappy, the characters are sharply developed, and the plot moves effortlessly forward.’
- ‘Intelligently written, with excellent characterisation, sharp wit and punchy back-n-forth dialogue.’
- ‘Rich and ambitious, this violent tale plays out with memorable scenes interspersed with writing to savour. A feast of poetic prose wrapped in noir.’
- ‘Sophisticated story-telling, written in a mature style, and targeted at a mature audience.’
