Hired killers. Vigilantes. Executioners. Paid killers or assassins working from a moral or political motivation. You’ll find them all in this thrilling anthology. But these are not ordinary killers, not your run-of-the-mill hitmen. The emphasis is on the “uncommon” here—unusual characters, unusual situations, and especially unusual means of killing.
Here are tales by some of the best suspense/thriller writers today, including F. Paul Wilson, Ken Bruen, J. Carson Black, Billie Sue Mosiman, Laura DiSilverio, and 18 others. The stories range from historical fiction to science fiction to political thriller—there’s even an alternate history story in the mix.
UNCOMMON ASSASSINS is available from Amazon.
