In the first of an exciting new series, Donovan Creed, former CIA assassin and a smart aleck tough guy with a heart of bronze, faces his biggest challenge ever. While pursuing a budding romance with the beautiful Kathleen Gray, Creed stumbles upon a plucky, but horribly burned, little girl named Addie Dawes. Creed’s suspicion about the fire that killed Addie’s family puts him on a collision course with crime boss Joe DeMeo in what soon becomes an issue of kill or be killed. DeMeo, a relentless killer who will stop at nothing to protect his empire, targets Creed and his loved ones for death—but Creed has plans of his own. Employing a bizarre cast of characters, including a giant, a rival crime lord, an angry midget bent on world conquest, and a team of circus clowns, Creed goes on the attack, with hilarious results.

Lethal People is a bizarre, breezy and exciting thriller with excellent pacing, snappy dialogue, and quirky characters who will keep you chuckling late into the night.

    " A fun read with larger than life characters and a plot to match. Worth a read if you have a few hours to spare on the beach or somewhere similar. Will certainly read the follow up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 9/19/2011

    " I became totally hooked on the Donovan Creed series with this book and quickly read them all. How can you come to like a hero who murders without a conscience? John Locke is the consummate story teller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 9/18/2011

    " Tried out one of the 99 cent Donovan Creed novels. Fast action, great dialog. Hard to beat for the price. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 9/15/2011

    " Loved this book. This storyline had lots of plot twists. Even the "good" guys were bad but you had to love Donovan Creed. Lots of action and suspense. I will definitely be reading more books by John Locke. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 9/13/2011

    " I don't really know how to categorize this book. Not really a mystery, more of a thriller. Interesting characters but more anti-hero than hero. How can you possibly like a main character who kills people for a living? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 9/6/2011

    " Love this series. Super fast, fun, light read!! Read all the books in a few weeks! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 8/30/2011

    " This book was good for a crime book. Nowhere near as stylish and intelligent as "the girl with the dragon tattoo" series, but it was entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gregory | 8/23/2011

    " Worth 99 cents. I would not spend $8.99 on this but I'd buy another one of his books to keep on Kindle when I need something to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Camilla | 8/19/2011

    " Mildly entertaining, but it won't win any awards for beautiful writing. It's also riddled with bizarre changes of tense at random intervals that were very distracting and made reading this annoying at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 8/8/2011

    " Oh, I loved this book! I bought several of John Locke's books for my Kindle. Glad I did! "

About the Author
Author John Locke

John Locke (1632–1704) was a British political philosopher who is often cited as the father of political liberalism. He studied medicine at Oxford University and became closely associated with the Earl of Shaftesbury, whose life he saved with a skillful operation. His best known works include A Letter Concerning Toleration, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, and Two Treatises of Government. Considered one of the first of the British empiricists and one of the most influential of the Enlightenment thinkers, his work was hugely important in the development of the social contract theory of government and influenced such later philosophers as Voltaire, Rousseau, Hume, and Kant. Two Treatises of Government in particular informed many of the principles behind the American Revolution, and its influence can particularly be seen in the Declaration of Independence.
