Review by: Matt Eliason on March 13, 2012 :
I would have given it 4 stars except for some glaring typos - Like Sidney instead of Sydney - and some poor capitalisions errors. Nothing a good proof read would not have picked up. Also the fact that you cannot get into AU with big amounts of cash.
Other than than a very satisfactory read.

Review by: Nora Lee on Feb. 23, 2012 :
A well written story, but it's not for the squeamish; it's about the Mexican drug cartels. It's mostly narrative; but then stories about assassins have to be because they plan their hits alone and mostly work alone. So you're left with internal thoughts and described actions. Editing is fair, not great but not too bad. Character development is good. The story is a catch up to a previously written book. Not superb, but a good solid read if you can stand murder, mutilation and torture.

Review by: robert talbott on Dec. 22, 2011 :
Great read! Wish it'd been longer. I've read other hit man/assassin type fiction before, but El Rey is the most cold blooded of all. He reminds me of the true life Mafia hit man Richard Kuklinski, who had over 200 kills before he was finally caught. Best free download I've read. Mr. Blake should consider a real publisher. Night of the Assassin on par with Lee Child, Stephen Hunter, and Lawrence Block.
