He was earning a history degree when he veered one hundred
and eighty degrees off course to become a free lance hit
man. He works for a secret service organization in Great
Britain but always knows he could accept employment
elsewhere. His latest assignment is to kill Dave
Bostridge, an American in a Russian hotel.
Two years later, J.J. aka William Hoffman is plying his
trade when something unexpected happens, the predator
becomes the prey. Everyone in his organization is being
killed and J.J. doesn't know why. Ironically, it is at the
Vermont bed and breakfast inn of Mr. Bostridge's family
that JJ begins to get a glimmer of what started two years
ago and is supposed to end with his life.
Surprisingly enough, J.J. isn't a character that will turn
readers off but an enigma that the audience will want to
figure out. The plot is basically simple and easy to
follow but it is the characters and how they interact with
J.J. that make PEOPLE DIE a very unusual and refreshing
tour. Kevin Wignall has talent to create an anti-hero that
will live on in the audience's memory.
