The 13-Minute Murder: A Thriller (Bookshots) (Hardcover)
Michael Ryan has a talent to sell. He can kill anybody in just minutes-from the first approach to the clean escape. His skills have served him well, and he has a grand plan: to get out alive and spend his earnings with his beloved wife, Maria. An anonymous client offers Ryan a rich payout to assassinate a target in Harvard Yard. One last big job is just what Ryan needs to complete his plan. And Harvard Yard? With dozens of unguarded entrances, it's one of the easiest settings he's worked. The precision strike starts perfectly, then somehow explodes into a horrifying spectacle. Something isn't right. Ryan has to run, and quickly learns that he's running alone. Maria is missing. The pieces lock into place and the world's fastest hit man sets out for one last score: Revenge. And every minute counts.
