In this sequel to the Edgar Award-winning The Butcher’s Boy, Thomas Perry’s highly skilled mob hit man returns to the United States with more reasons to kill—until the odds turn terrifyingly against him.

He came to England to rest. He calls himself Michael Shaeffer, says he’s a retired American businessman. He goes to the races, dates a kinky aristocrat, and sleeps with dozens of weapons. Ten years ago it was different. Then, he was the Butcher’s Boy, the highly skilled mob hit man who pulled a slaughter job on some double-crossing clients and started a mob war. Ever since, there’s been a price on his head.

Now, after a decade, they’ve found him. The Butcher’s Boy escapes back to the States with more reasons to kill. Until the odds turn terrifyingly against him … until the Mafia, the cops, the FBI, and the damn Justice Department want his hide … until he’s locked into a cross-country odyssey of fear and death that could tear his world to pieces.

    " Sometimes bad luck and good luck are so closely intertwined, that it's hard to know which is which. I picked up this audiobook at a used bookstore in Oakland for my drive down the state, and from its first chapter I was hooked. Number Two in a series about a contract killer with many names, known to his enemies in the Mafia and the Justice Department alike as "The Butcher's Boy," this is taut, meticulous, authentic storytelling with breathtaking action and an amazing point of view. We learn to admire and identify with the killer, even though we know he is a bad, bad man. The story spans many locations and situations in the UK and across the US as our anti-hero, who had successfully avoided Mafia revenge for ten years, is suddenly spottted and must kill his pursuers (a lot of them), if he has a hope of getting away. Stir into the mix a bright female Justice attorney who had pursued him ten years before and has a thing for the mob, and we have a wonderful series. I'm going to consume them all. Oh, the bad luck? I got a ticket on my car after only 15 minutes in the bookstore. So whatever I saved buying this used was trumped by my involuntary donation to the City of Oakland. Sigh. "
