"The first person I ever killed was my best friend..."
Tom White is an unassuming guy from Sussex with a crappy job and no prospects to speak of. When his partying neighbour seems to be trying to rock their Brighton street to its very foundations our ‘hero’, rather than confront the noise pollutant, takes what he sees as the less confrontational way out – he commits murder.
But he’s no criminal mastermind and this dark act causes Tom to stumble comically into an underworld in which he learns that he is rather good at his new found talent but totally out of his depth with his new associates; two scary gangsters who could have walked straight off the set of a Guy Ritchie film, and the mysterious and impossibly sexy Stephanie, who is hiding more than her drop-dead smile reveals.
Flying by the seat of his pants, Tom muddles his way through his new career, balancing the needs of his underworld bosses, his unknowing girlfriend Laura and his knowing-too-much best friend, Colin, who shares Tom’s macabre moral compass.
Accidental Hitman is as heavy on humour as it is on thrills. Generous doses of laugh out loud comedy usher in the storyline which takes on a life – or perhaps death - of its own. As the corpses start to mount and two rival police forces aim to spoil Tom’s game of murder by numbers, it all gets a bit more serious.

I didn't know what to expect when I paid 99p for this but I'm so glad I took the chance on it.
This is one of the funniest books I've read in a long time. Brilliant dark humour with a good storyline to keep up interest.
This had me laughing so much I wasn't able to read it on a bus without looking like a moron. I would have happily paid £8 for this book but the fact it was 99p makes this the best book I've read all year.
If you liked the film Lucky Number Slevin an appreciate dark humour and foul language you'll love this book :)
Get's you hooked straight away, a well written, belly laugh inducing book. Great characters, mad, dark but weirdly believable plot. Should be a film!
Excellent book. A real page turner! Dark comedy! Well worth a look,:-)
