A gripping, illusion-free look at people we license to kill. A rare visitor to a hospice near Rome draws out macabre reminiscences from inmate Franco Tira, whose life changed when the day-to-day business of disposing of dissidents got personal. Who is the mysterious visitor, and what is his purpose? Has the former secret agent's past caught up with him at last?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I am a man of Kent, though I come from a long line of Irish peasants. I have worked as a fruit-picker, kitchen hand, road-sweeper, bar-tender, wages clerk, teacher of English as a foreign language, translator and copy-editor. I recently retired from a job within the United Nations system, and now concentrate on my own words, as a writer and an actor. My home is Italy.
