The main character is an assassin (hit man) for a crime boss who wants his wife killed. How will our hero do it? Will he do it? I was moderately concerned about the outcome. I give this a B.
Another book club choice. We read Russell's The Sparrow and I thought this would be another interesting story. Nothing like the science fiction Sparrow, this is a Holocaust story that takes place in a small town in Italy, It kept me engrossed throughout.
