David S, Reviewer
Time wanders with the protagonist on his occasional trips into the world. He is a Hitman and spends his spare time at bars getting drunk or listening voice messages from his dead ex-wife. Most of the novel is him actually on his missions or contemplating about his life and what it means. Snippets of the voicemail appear, showing us where his head's at. Other characters appear in this bloodbath, but they function more as plot devices. Overall the story is very glum and morose, and the drunken, boozy, stoned out reality of the main character was a real bummer. It was hard to tell what was hallucination or real events. This book was more work to read than I would have liked.
