John Lago is, without a shadow of a doubt, somebody readers will both despise and empathise with in equal amounts, thanks to the story-telling mastery of his creator, debut author Shane Kuhn.

Lago is the epitome of “the quiet ones are always the worst”, particularly given that he has spent most of his life in care homes and orphanages, before being recruited by Human Resourses Inc. an elite organisation set up to take out the trash: IE they are a squad of hit-men who infiltrate organisations as anonymous interns, get close to their targets and assassinate them. Lago is the best but. At the ripe old age of twenty-five, this is his last job and he’s determined to go out with a bang.

Okay, some of the situations that Lago gets into and, subsequently, out of are a little too fantastic, but there is no question that Kuhn’s skills lie in his ability construct dialogue that is so realistic it is almost as though we as readers are listening in on a telephone extension.

Added to this are the delicious descriptions of the settings, the hot-wired pace and the vivid detailing of the action that really makes Kill Your Boss a winner.
