I was disappointed by AGREEMENT TO KILL. The characters were two dimensional, the plot didn't come together in a plausible way and the overall story itself was a bit of a reach. With any fiction, a certain amount of suspended belief is required but I couldn't fathom how this plot was hatched and force myself to believe it could actually happen. Jake Spinner is accused of the murder of a shady local town character, only to escape the laws clutches, locate the real hired killer and then attempt to join the outfit that hired him after forming a strange bond with the hitman. It just didn't add up. While pulpy and easy to read I was left wanting. I think there is a good concept here, unfortunately the execution, characters, and early plot formulation just didn't come together. The only saving grace was the twists at the end of the novel, yet those weren't written in an engaging manner. AGREEMENT TO KILL could've been a lot better yet suffers from average writing and insufficient detail.
