Martin Terrier is a hired killer who wants out of the game so
he can settle down and marry his childhood sweetheart, Anne. After all, that’s
why he took up this profession in the first place. But the organization won’t
let him go—they have other, more deadly plans for him. There’s a visiting
politician, an Arab oil magnate, whom they want assassinated, and Terrier is their
man. Once again, the gunman must assume the prone shooting position—but not

work from the pen of Jean-Patrick Manchette. Download and start listening now!
