Killing is My Business, Honey

by Sebastian Niemann

Good money, flexible hours, plenty of human contact

Toni Ricardelli is a stone-cold professional killer – a real master of his trade. But despite all the success in his profession, Toni is still missing something for happiness: a loving woman. Then, during one of his assignments, of all times, he actually seems to meet the right woman. Toni has just been hired by a mafia clan to whack Enrico Puzzo. The eccentric Italian author claims he knows the Mafia from inside – and is about to publish his memoirs. But then, Toni runs into the bumbling editor Julia. For him, it is love at first sight! To get to know her better, the killer has but one chance: He must pretend to be Enrico and offer her his memoirs for publication. But in doing so, he not only incurs the jealousy of Julia's fiancé Bob, but also the fury of his mafia employers…
