A hit-man’s story of survival

 

An expert hitman is told that he is terminally ill and arranges to be killed by some of his rivals (the party of the title) – and then decides to survive after all. Betrayed at every step, he looks for the source of his troubles.

 

What looks like painted art (not my favourite type) works well although features are indistinct. The writing is engaging and I enjoyed this – this is only Volume 1 – there’s more to come as our “hero” tries to evade assassination.
