Our October group read theme is Assassins.

An assassin is a person who kills people professionally. They can be bad guys, good guys, or somewhere in between. Their motives can vary. It can be for a cause greater than themselves, it can be for money. It's up to you.


Here are the other considerations:

1. One nomination per group member. The books must be nominated with a Goodreads link by clicking on 'add book/author'. If a book does not have a Goodreads link, it will not be added to the poll.
2. Books need to be readily available, ie, in print (able to buy new or in ebook format).
3. Books should have some degree of action/adventure content.
4. Past group reads are not eligible to be nominated again. The past group discussions remain open for members to comment. You can view the list of past reads here:

https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

5. Books must be either standalone or first in a series (or they may be later in a series if constructed to be read as a standalone).
6. Authors are asked not to nominate their own books or solicit nominations from members.

Please feel free to include a blurb for the book so others know a little about the book, along with your Goodreads book link.

The poll will go up on September 18th.

I'm probably way too excited about this theme. I love assassins in fiction. I'm looking forward to the books that people nominate.

Mike Wazowski (mikequist1) I'll nominate Hit Man by Lawrence Block.

I like the Lawrence Block series to. I also like Tom Wood's series so I'll nominate: The Hunter The Hunter (Victor the Assassin, #1) by Tom Wood

It's been a long time since I last read this, but I recall really liking it.

I like all these so it's sort of a win with any of them.

Thanks for the nominations. We have a few we've already read:

Orphan X
The Hunter
The Gray Man

What I will do is add the next book in each series to the poll.
