I'm not sure how many novelists can portray paid assassins in a favorable light, enough so that the reader is on the assassin's side. But Spruill and Wilson manage it handily. NIGHTKILL is well worth a read.

From back cover: Jack Nacht knows how to take risks and believes in justice, even if it's of the skewed sort. He's one of the best at what he does -- and what he does is kill people for a living. But it's a young man's game and he wants out. His instincts are right. When Jake reluctantly agrees to go on one last hit, he's double-crossed, and ends up completely paralyzed. The mob thinks he's a done deal. But what they don't know is that a brilliant doctor has developed a dangerous and deadly new technique. And if he succeeds, Jake Nacht will not only walk away again -- but might also get a shot at revenge.

this is the story of medical breakthrough which helps change an assasin's life. Ok but I prefer the repairman jack stuff myself.

This is really not one of Wilson's best. It plods along in a relatively predictable path much like the Repairman Jack novels.

If you like F. Paul Wilson, read it. If you have never read him, this book probably won't make a fan of you.
