Gun For Hire: A Michael Devlin Omnibus
Nothing To Lose.
Killing comes easy to Michael Devlin, a soldier turned assassin.
When he murders Martin Pound, a corrupt politician, he considers it to be just another job.
His days are spent drinking, reading and visiting his late wife’s grave. Devlin has nothing to live for.
Then he meets Emma, “a good Catholic girl”. Everyone deserves a second chance.
But the hunter is about to become the hunted.
The Parker brothers, the criminal family who put the hit out on the politician, want to tie-up loose ends.
Devlin must kill or be killed.
‘Nothing To Lose’ is a literary thriller, set in South London. Thomas Waugh has created a hero (or anti-hero) who will seem human to some readers and inhuman to others. You decide.
Michael Devlin, former soldier and contract killer, thought he had retired. He was wrong.
Rameen Jamal - the man who murdered and maimed his comrades in Helmand - is in London.
Devlin vows to kill again.
He decides to call upon the help of the fixer, Oliver Porter, to plan the hit at The Ritz hotel.
But not everything will go to plan.
‘Darkness Visible’ is a page-turning novella, in the vein of Graham Greene’s “entertainments” and Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels.
Ready For Anything
Killing isn’t good for the soul…
After the tragic shooting of a friend during his last job Michael Devlin promises to never draw his gun again.
But he is tracked down and blackmailed by Mason Talbot, a CIA agent stationed in London, into planning a hit on a prominent UK politician.
With the help of the fixer, Oliver Porter, Devlin must carry out the job – and somehow find a way to prevent himself from becoming one of Talbot’s assets.
The assassination goes ahead. But Talbot inhabits a world of smoke and mirrors. Not all goes according to plan.
Devlin will end up confronting his most formidable enemy of all, his conscience.
Thomas Waugh is the pseudonym of a bestselling historical novelist. His books have been widely praised.
