    This is the first book in the Paul Walden 'soldier turned hit man' series and the debut novel of author LR Currell I loved how easy it was to become invested in Paul's character He's a soldier who took the fall for something not entirely his doing which ended his military career In return the soldier he helped was supposed to take care of him Not so much Paul finds himself working at a bread factory and busting his rear for next to nothing while his live in girlfriend continues to spend money and act like they didn't have a care in the worldIn a twist of events Paul is introduced to the world of a hit man Money power and kicking ass And seriously who could resist the promise of all that especially when your back is against a wall? I know I couldn'tThe Killer from Manilla did start off on the slower side but got better and better as it went along Paul Walden it seems is just getting started A wonderful debut novel I look forward to reading many by Mr Currell

    I received a kindle for my birthday and this was the first book I downloaded and read off It was free at the time and I liked the sound of the story line so I thought that I would read itI was surprised that this was the author's debut For a debut it struck me as well written I think that the author writes with a maturity and skill that is beyond his years The journey that the main character Paul has started to undertake it is the first book in a series is one that could be easily predicted but as of this moment in time still has the future hanging in the air I like the idea of an ex soldier been there done that trying to fit into society it is a hard road to undertake and one that presents many challenges It did not surprise me when I read the author's biography that he is also an ex soldierYou can tell this by the real world experiences he lays out in this book There was one major twist in this book that I absolutely loved the end and there was also a lot of other surprises that kept you guessing Currell definitely wrote a book for the thinking man he writes in a way that has you considering all the different possibilities while at the same time enjoying yourself I will definitely be reading the other stories this young author has to offer

    I received a free ebook copy of this book from the authorThe bookPaul is an ex military man who took the fall for his Major He's trying to get his life as a civilian together He also receives money from the Major as compensation He has a job at a bread factory which he hatesAfter killing a convicted paedophile things turn upside down for him What I ThinkI was terribly disappointed There were a lot of typos too much repetition the story wasn't easy to follow and sentence construction could have been a lot betterNothing happened for like the first half of the book It was a bit too slow I just kept on waiting for something to happenThe book is short but it took me a very long tee to read it because I wasn't drawn into the book

    Fantastic debut novel from a very promising Australian author Paul Walden has some challenges thrown his way work his personal life and money to name a few Things escalate and there are some simply outstanding twists and turns that you will not see coming I'm really excited about the seuel to Killer which should see Paul thrown into a very different world compared to the one we see him in the firstKeep writing LR Currell your style and methods of character development are exciting to read
