Crime Club - The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter, Malcom Mackay

We meet at the Odyssey on the second Monday of every month at 7:00 p.m.. Note: Even though the store is closed, we will still meet at 7:00 p.m.. However, you must use the upstairs (College Street) entrance, as the ground floor entrance (parking lot) will be locked. In addition, if you wish to buy the book for the subsequent month (at the regular club discount), please bring a check. It's the only kind of payment that can be accepted during off-hours at the store.

It's free and everyone is welcome. We talk about the characters, the plot, the setting, and the language. We reveal why we liked the book or why we didn't. Sometimes we agree and sometimes we don't.  Mostly we have a good time talking crime.

About the Book:
 
It’s easy to kill a man. It’s hard to kill a man well.
 
A twenty-nine-year-old man lives alone in his Glasgow flat. The telephone rings; a casual conversation, but behind this a job offer.
 
The clues are there if you know to look for them. He is an expert. A loner. Freelance. Another job is another job, but what if this organization wants more?
 
A meeting at a club. An offer. A target: Lewis Winter, a necessary sacrifice that will be only the first step in an all-out war between crime syndicates the likes of which hasn't been seen for decades.
 
It's easy to kill a man. It's hard to kill a man well. People who do it well know this. People who do it badly find out the hard way. The hard way has consequences.
