For the past 40 years, I?ve been a professional contract killer ? and a damn good one at that, perhaps even one of the best alive today ? and that question passes through my mind every time I perform a hit, like a bullet through a target?s skull. It?s simple, it?s elegant.
You might assume from the fact that I kill people for a living I don?t have the most ?glowing? perspective on humanity, and sure, I wade through plenty of human garbage on the job. I?ve dealt with jilted lovers who want me to slide blades into the brainstems of their unfaithful partners, and their whole families. Worse still are the sniveling pieces of **** who are willing to offer up their children?s lives just so they can snort coke and **** hookers another day. They?re mostly politicians, incidentally.
