A good Read
This review is from: Action & Adventure - Fiction - The Killer 2 (Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
In this second book of Jack Elgos's trilogy, we follow the career of Darren 'Butch' McCann, former IRA killer, now working for the British Secret Service under a new name and living in a mansion in the English countryside. His skills at taking out the bad guys are invaluable and his handler, a 'Mr Turner,' sends him on assignments to New York and Ireland where only his quick wits get him out of hair raising situations. We like Darren because we see him as basically a nice guy but the product of a troubled childhood. He sees himself as someone who has always been manipulated and is driven by a desire for revenge. After a seriously botched mission in Northern Spain tracking terrorists from the Middle East, he is injured, but with the luck of the Irish, is
nursed back to health by a beautiful Spanish woman in her remote farmhouse. Love begins to bloom and then . . . but you will have to read it to find out. There is plenty of excitement and enough well defined characters to hold our interest and we eagerly await the final book of the trilogy to find out how it will end.

Return of the killer
This review is for The Killer 2: The American Connection (Paperback)
I hadn't heard of Jack Elgos till recently when a friend loaned me a copy of 'The Killer' to read, and what a read it was. So, I've bought Killer 2' and was immediately emotionally re-embroiled in Liam's (Darren renamed) journey of revenge taking him, with mixed loyalties, on a very dangerous mission to the USA and further adventures in Europe. It's another explosive episode of audacious, daring exploits absorbing you into the very heart of the action, potentially nerve wracking save for the situation humour Elgos conjures up, which in no way detracts from the very serious subject tackled. Someone once coined the phrase 'A funny way of being serious' which I think just about applies here. A writing style unlike any other I've read before.
A significant new talent.
