Let us just call this a miss… **
When I was about eleven I wanted to either be a hit man or a priest. As I thought about it, maybe a priest would be a good cover. One of my all time favorite movies is The Mechanic with Charles Bronson. So when I see a book about a hit man, I naturally want to read it.
Confessions of A Hit Man falls short of being a good read. Godwin writes the story in first person which had the potential of revealing how a hit man thinks, but the narrative is too simplistic. There was nothing that made me relate to the main character and not enough tension to make this a page turner.
It is a quick read which meant I did not waste too much time on it. Sadly disappointing. This one gets two stars.
