Thanks to all those who have picked up a copy of my new fiction book Licardo Prince Accidental Assassin for 99c
Check out some of the reviews out now and grab a copy of the story of a Lounge Lothario Assassin.
This is a very fun book of a very swanky Australian assassin named Licardo Prince. It captures a mid-century modern lifestyle that you may recognize from shows like ‘Mad Men’ or ‘James Bond’. If you are even remotely interested in rockabilly, vintage life, mid-century modern style, then this is for you. While reading the story I had very stylized images running through my head in the style of Shag, Brad Bird, and Bruce Timm. I could definitely see this being a series or turned into a graphic novel.

A fast but highly entertaining read… looking forward to the next adventure of Licardo Prince!
A first rate, cracking good yarn that moves at a fast pace and leaves one hardly able to wait for the next instalment of the adventures of Licardo Prince.
Licardo Prince is a very short, fast-paced novella that’s deliberately thin on character development but is detailed in its descriptions of the milieu in which the assassin operates. Emulating his creator’s tastes, Prince attends a gig by the Martini Kings, a quartet often plugged on the “Cocktail Nation.” Both Kooper and Prince dig retro clothes, sexy babes, and vintage cars. Kooper clearly reads old-fashioned spy stories as there are numerous references to the tradecraft Prince uses as well as the processes that go through his mind as he sets up his kills while evading, he hopes, being discovered by the law. Most of the literary trappings should be familiar to readers of old-school spy novels; what is new are the unusual methods Prince employs to eliminate his prey, sometimes on the fly, mostly months in the planning.
It’s obvious this yarn is intended to set up a series of future adventures with Prince likely to continue his duel with that other high-dollar assassin. Licardo Prince is a light read and, priced at 99 cents, likely to appeal to those who enjoy jet-setting adventures they can experience in one or two short sittings. Just don’t start imagining ways you can permanently eliminate folks who are crimping your own style .
