50 and you’re out!
4 out of 5 stars
A very short story to say the least, but a really enjoyable one at that. Enough time was spent on character development that you didn’t feel totally lost but there could have been a ton more to this story. I believe that’s what Platt planned to do after releasing this story — people were hooked with the little taste they got, and wanted more.
The pacing was really good (a little fast) and the overall feel of the book was that it’s incredibly short, but overall I still found myself to really enjoy it. The characters weren’t really explained, but I liked the ones that I met. I’d be curious to see where Platt takes the Janus Group series.
Just one final target stands between a weary assassin and a life of freedom and wealth. But time is running short: the mark knows that he’s coming, and he’s not the only contractor on the job…
