Killjoy by LeVar Ravel - Guest Blogger Book Review

By 1:36 PM , , , , , , , , , , , ,

She's the death of any party. He's the death of anyone he's paid to kill.
A woman of plain living, Gwen Orangegrave would rather balance budgets all day than enjoy life. Maybe you can't help being a killjoy, when you work for the biggest mob in Boston and you're married to the boss, a man even stricter than you.
Corbin Locke, the mob's man in Congress, shows Gwen a new life and reignites old feelings-until he throws her over and cheats the mob all in one day. To get their revenge on him, the mob hires only the best: a nameless hitman so young and cheerful, you'd never know he's the master of faking suicides.
As the woman scorned, Gwen goes along at first. But when doubts come, she seeks another solution. Risking the wrath of both mob and assassin, her search will confront her with what she lost in the past, and who she might save in the future. She must fight for a man's life-and perhaps hers, too-while evading the grim reapers who roam Boston.
Little does Gwen know how deep her quest will take her into the hitman's world of dark magic. Killjoy or not, can she prove any match for the best killer in the world?

Jennifer's Review
It was a great book that I liked very much. 
It’s about a girl named Gwen who has a husband that works for Puritian Provisions, a mob. Gwen has an affair with one of the members named Corbin Locke. He betrays the company, so her husband orders his death. 
The guy who is hired to kill Corbin has powers beyond imagination and can make deaths look like suicides or accidents, and the police can never link it to Purtitian Provisions.
How does he do it? What, exactly, can he do? It’s so cool, and you should read this book to find out. 
Can’t wait for the next one to see if the author follows up on it. 5 stars.
