The Assassin Who Gave Up His Gun

The Assassin Who Gave Up His Gun

(1969)
A novel by

 
A target's wife makes a cold-hearted assassin question his work

The hitman adjusts his rifle sight in an apartment across the street from his mark. For thirty minutes he peers through his scope, watching the man he is about to kill. He waits patiently, for assassinations demand focus. One bullet is all he needs. When the job is done, he disappears.

This is an ordinary working day for Richard Breckner, a hired gun on the payroll of one of America's enemies. He kills for the money, holding no allegiance to his country and no scruples about murder. He will kill anyone, no matter whom, from an American reverend in Miami to his superior at the department. But then, on a job in Geneva, he kills a target who dies unafraid. Unnerved by the dead man's steely confidence, Breckner turns on his employers. If he wishes to survive, the world's finest assassin must remember how to care.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author's estate.
