    Read & Download ´ The Ethical Assassin The Ethical AssassinThe title of this book caught my eye and the corresponding premise was just as intriguing However I was disappointed In reality the story was a thinly disguised animal rights treatise There were so many great places Liss could have taken the idea of an “ethical assassin” someone who kills people who do in fac

    Read & Download ´ The Ethical Assassin The Ethical AssassinThis book is a pretty uick read It started off very slow for me but there was something about it that kept me just interested enough that I didn't abandon it There were some uirky things going on that held out real promise I was halfway through before it really hooked me though Once there it was uite interestingI'd give the last part of the book 4 stars but it was somewhat rushed too little too late to really make the book a good one The main character finally develops into a person that I could begin to identify with Until that time part of the problem was that I really didn't care about anyone or anything in the book A mild distaste for all involved was my prevailing emotion So 1 star to the first half for almost turning me off By the end of the book I was hoping for though

    Read & Download ´ The Ethical Assassin The Ethical AssassinThis book is a complete departure from the books that I have read by D Liss I felt like I was in the world of Carl Hiaasen with his plastic palm trees Florida humidity and sprinkling of wantonly depraved characters all couched to make one want to hop on a plane and visit every major city in Florida That being said I am impressed that Liss has the ability to go from historical fiction and such protaginists as Benjamin Weaver and take us to mid 80's Florida with Lem Atlick as our schmuck lead characterThe book was described as a Hardy boys adventure on acid It certainly delivers The action is fast paced and is absurdly believable Lem is fresh out of high school and attempting to earn money selling encyclopedias He run afoul with the local law and is befriended by a sociopathic assassin who is strangely moral and willingly shares his views with Lem who finds them oddly compelling the he hears I don't
