The Tourist Killer (The Barry-Hixon Conspiracy Book 1)
By FC Etier
Claudia Barry is 63 years old—a baby boomer. She completes what she hopes will be her last assignment. Retirement beckons. Then another job demands her skill as a professional assassin. Claudia Barry is The Tourist Killer.
FCEtier delves into the mindset of a masters candidate and the events that take the student on a career path to the top of a lonely profession. Readers get to know a conflicted individual who seeks resolution to inner conflicts as her phenomenal career enters its twilight years.
How does an individual become a target? Who makes the life-ending decision?
The cast includes potential victims, security staffs, and several eccentric characters including an aging hippie who speaks only in song lyrics and a former FBI agent with diverse interests. The role of Julian F. Thibaut, the enigmatic billionaire member of the one percent of the one percenters, changes with the winds and adds doubt to the already unstable status quo. As the action proceeds on several fronts, the Barry battles conscience, hired killers, and burn-out while juggling relationships and attempts at normalcy.
In this fast-paced story with political overtones, FCEtier takes readers on a thrill ride and addresses personal, business, and governmental ethics.
