The day started out like any other for Tony Giodone. Tony is an assassin for hire and an adopted member of the Family, though he prefers to describe himself as a businessman who works the wrong side of the street. Today, Tony is meeting a client at Nick’s Tavern.
At first, the meeting with the client, Suzi (Sue) Quentin, is pretty standard. That is, until Sue mentions that the hit is on herself. The reason for her suicide by hit man, is that she is being terrorized by her sisters Bekki and Mitzi and her mother Myra. Far from kind and loving, these three women treat Sue like a servant and make every effort to ruin her career and love life. Sue feels the only way out of this situation is death. Tony is both perplexed and intrigued by this woman.
Hunter’s Moon has a little bit of something for everyone. There’s romance. There’s comedy. There’s action, and there’s intrigue. These aspects intermeshed to create a very entertaining action filled storyline. By far, however, the best part of this book is the characters themselves. How often does one read about a teenage assassin who still plays video games and is shy with girls but was incarcerated for his first murder conviction at age six; a mother who throws herself down the stairs so that her daughter has to take care of her; or a hit man who just happens to be a werewolf? These characters are highly original, hilarious, entertaining, and add a little extra flare to the story.
