Review: The Silver Bear by Derek Haas

Columbus has a natural talent as a killer. It is instinct for Columbus, a way of life. Even with his first hit he proved himself more than capable of getting the job done. When a gun doesn't do the job, he can use whatever prop comes his way. If there isn't anything readily available, he will happily kill with his bare hands.

His latest assignment isn't quite going the way he has planned. When Columbus finds himself drowning in a pool of secrets, he begins to question the path he has chosen in life.

Brilliantly written. Thriller fans everywhere will sing praise for this book. Even though Columbus was a killer, he's a really likable character.
