He's a bad man, but a good killer... The Killing Kind is an explosive and original thriller for fans of I Am Pilgrim.

Michael Hendricks is not a good man.

He doesn't deserve a good life.

But he is very good at his job.

He's the killing kind.

He knows he's a bad person, but he still has a code: he doesn't work for anyone but himself, and he never kills civilians. He only hits hitters.

It's not a bad way to make a living, but it's a great way to make enemies.

And now the FBI and the mafia have Hendricks in their sights, he's about to learn just how good he really is...

Industry Reviews

A story of rare, compelling brilliance, with a concept so high you'll need oxygen to finish it...This is a one-sitting, extravagant, mind-blowing reading pleasure with a stable of characters who come across as all flesh, bone and folly. You will never look at men hired to kill other humans the same way. You won't merely read this book, you will inhale it. - David Baldacci

Lean, brutal and riveting, THE KILLING KIND is the kind of novel you can't put down but also want to savour. With sharply etched characters, knifelike twists and hardboiled energy to burn, it's an utter winner, beginning to end.

- Megan Abbott, bestselling author of THE END OF EVERYTHING

Roaring tough-guy fun - The Sunday Times

Pure joy...so fast-moving, so expertly arranged, every piece fitting together with a well-oiled snap, that it feels weaponized. Read it. Or else. - New York Times Book Review

A fast-moving thriller with a clever premise...Who will best whom is by no means obvious in this fast-moving, witty tale of good guy versus bad guy versus worse guy. - Kirkus starred review

Holm is terrific at rendering characters with empathy and humour...you'll want to go along for the ride - but keep that seat belt fastened - Boston Globe
