Donovan Creed, a former CIA assassin, is a very tough man with a weakness for very easy women. Meet him in LETHAL PEOPLE a relentlessly entertaining crime novel that's often LOL - bizarre funny! The action is fast and furious, the dialogue smart, savvy and sexy. The story is filled with quirky characters and clever surprises.

My Thoughts:
Donovan Creed is a man without fear, without emotion but yet will try to do right by the people who deserves it. He seems to be quite the psychopath but in somewhat of a normal way.

Donovan Creed, a former CIA Assassin, turned hit man for anyone who pays enough. He has a weakness for pretty women who are "easy". Donovan also works for Homeland Security capturing and/or killing terrorist and he also test weapons for the military. He has no luck with women due to being somewhat of a cut and dry kind of guy. But there's always someone out there for everyone. He has an ex-wife who hates every ounce of him and a daughter who talks to me as if he's clueless. He doesn't have a permanent home but instead sleeps in subterranean prison cell or he will setup in the attics of unknown people. Without their knowledge of course.

Lethal People begins with a home going up in flames with a family of four inside. Later in the book, the tie in with the fire and the remaining survivor, you will meet the people who Donovan has quite a bit of dealings with. From a big time mob boss who is somewhat of a "friend", another mob boss who he refused to do work for and is trying to kill him to a quadriplegic "little person" with an army of "little people" who hired him to do a hit and finally his body guard Augustus Quinn, who is so disfigured the sight of him makes people scream.

I thought Lethal People had quite a bit of humor and the visual I have of Quinn kind of remind me of an upright version of a cross between Frankenstein and Quasimodo with a mix of Jason Vorhees thrown in. The book was very fast paced and involved quite a bit of action. There was even a little romance for Creed.

Would I read another John Locke book: yes
Is this a book I would recommend: yes but not to someone who reads serious crime novels. 

DISCLAIMER: I was in no way compensated to review this book. These are my opinions of a book in which I purchased on my own.
