To Kill A Stranger
by Jack Devon
Harry is a former professional soldier down on his luck, a tramp on Londons streets and, like so many other ex-servicemen living rough, preoccupied with finding something to eat and somewhere to sleep. When an old comrade offers him a second chance and a great deal of money to do what hes best at killing strangers it seems a no-brainer.
Only it isnt for Queen and Country, but a covert organization thats been privatized along with so much else of Britains once proud public services. At first all goes well, but Harry realizes too late that shooting defenceless, unarmed civilians in Londons well-heeled West End is a far cry from combat in Britains small wars - the Falklands, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Harry discovers he has a conscience. To refuse a contract is to become a target. He must deceive his new employers if hes to continue to enjoy the lavish lifestyle of a professional hitman. Its only a matter of time before Harry is found out and transformed from predator into prey, culminating in an explosive showdown in the Scottish Highlands.
