Michael Callinglast is a Seattle writer who currently resides in Kansas but don't hold that against him.

Michael Callinglast can write. He proves it with this teaser book of three chapters. If you are tired of reading ebooks riddled with bad grammar, flat characters and missing punctuation Ferocity will be a refreshing change.
Jack Tide is a sarcastic and seemingly confused hit man who is both worried and irritated that the girl he has fallen in love with suddenly seems to have vanished. Jack is a multi-talented killer and is not tied to just one form of assassinating people. The location of Seattle is well depicted and brand name references abound but the character of Jack Tide is relegated to driving a fictitious car which I found puzzling.
The writing is certainly above average and I may download the next installment but I have to confess that this book's description did not reveal that it was only the first three chapters of something longer. Personally I don't 'get' offering books in chunks; I'd rather have a complete work. I felt a little gypped (even though it was free) when the 'book' ended after only three chapters. Another installment is currently available but after that I have to wonder how long until more? With so many books to read I don't want to invest in a story that may never have a conclusion. I'd urge Callinglast to take his obvious talents and offer a completely finished project instead of a sporadic piecemeal.
