In Evolution of a Killer you will meet Lazarus Solaris, killer, criminal contractor, free-lance CIA asset and multi-millionaire philanthropist. A modern day cross between "Robin Hood" and "The Jackal". A man as capable of random acts of kindness as he is violence - a sociopath with the tattered remnants of a conscience.
This is the first of "The Lazarus Chronicles", with 1 part thriller, 1 part mystery, 1 part romance and plenty of action. Learn how a 7 year old Iowa farm boy evolved into a world class assassin. His history is woven into today where Lazarus is executing a contract to relocate an embezzling South Texas Banker with subplots involving a Mexican Drug Lord and the exotic, Angelique Shaloub.
Lazarus is a master of disguise, well trained in the arts of acting as well as fighting. He uses his various "personas" to act as the mediator for the infamous "Chameleon", a nick-name he earned early in his career - a title of honor bestowed upon him by one of his earlist victims. "Cooper Johnson", his favorite alter-ego, plays a major part in Evolution of a Killer and you will find his character deceptively charming and equally deadly.
Surrounding Lazarus is a cast of characters that have become important to him over the years; from a young Japanese girl he rescued from abuse to Dan Grimsrud - NSA senior analyst and father to "Mr. Black", a CIA black-ops specialist that owes his life to Lazarus. There seems to be no limit what these people will do for Lazarus - or how far Lazarus will go to protect those that he forges relationships with. Toss in Langston Von Shepherd, Lazarus' coal black 100 pound canine companion, and you have a mixture ripe for excitement.
Come along for the ride which will take you from WWII Poland to modern day Argentina - with stops in Anamosa, Iowa, Chateaurenard, France, Rockport,Texas and Duck Key Florida along the way. You'll be glad you did and you'll be ready for the second book in the series: "Family of a Killer", where Lazarus continues the new chapter in his life with Angelique and the delightful Rebecca Newton, Angelique's personal assistant.
