Book Review: Agnes and the Hitman



Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer

This is the second fiction collaboration between romance author Crusie and suspense author Mayer, and once again, it's a doozy!

Agnes' life is threatened as she is in the middle of preparing a wedding at her home, and Shane (the hitman) is sent in to protect her. Throw in a very quirky cast of characters, multiple murder attempts, a cast iron skillet, a lot of food, the mob and some bombs, and you've got this novel.

I think this is another fun collaboration, with a fun mix of suspense, death and mayhem with girly issues and a sassy romance. I think this improves on the formula set down by the first novel between the two, Don't Look Down.

Fun!

Note: I listened to the audio version, narrated by Sandra Burr. The echo-ey "thoughts" took some getting used to, but she did a fine job with all the characters and action.
