|Plot Summary of The Hit|
In the back woods of Mississipp, before he went to Nam and she met wealthy Tom Morris, Kinnerly was Luke Carr's beloved. After he returns from Vietnam, Kinnerly remains his obsession. However, though they share illicit moments she accuses him of wanting her only when he desires sexual release. Luke knows all he has in the world is his bow and arrow and Adel the bird dog. However, the simple hit turns into a series of twisted fiascos as Luke struggles to hide the crime with more crimes, including murder.
This Mississippi Noir could easily star McMurray and Stanwick as readers will enjoy the classic relationship between the disturbed vet and his femme fatale manipulator double crossing him. Through his first novel, Jere Hoar shows strong skills by writing an action-packed story line done in flashbacks using “notebooks” as chapters while Luke resides in a VA hospital driving his psychiatrist crazy. The cast is classic Noir and even the vividly descriptive rural setting feels right as this well written crime thriller should be a hit to sub-genre fans.
