Timothy Carrier, having a beer after work at his friends tavern, enjoys drawing eccentric customers into amusing conversations. But the jittery man who sits next to him tonight has mistaken Tim for someone very differentand passes to him a manila envelope full of cash.
Ten thousand now. You get the rest when shes gone.
The stranger walks out, leaving a photo of the pretty woman marked for death, and her address. But things are about to get worse. In minutes another stranger sits next to Tim. This one is a cold-blooded killer who believes Tim is the man who has hired him.
Thinking fast, Tim says, Ive had a change of heart. You get ten thousandfor doing nothing. Call it a no-kill fee. He keeps the photo and gives the money to the hired killer. And when Tim secretly follows the man out of the tavern, he gets a further shock: the hired killer is a cop.
"Starred Review. Bestseller Koontz delivers a thriller so compelling many readers will race through the book in one sitting." - PW.
"Yet the climax and the denouement seem half-baked and perfunctory. This is, however, as politically passionate and common-guy witty as his other, better recent books." - Booklist.
