The Killing Question, By Mark Allen


To kill or not to kill, that is the question down on his luck private investigator Jack Reece must ask himself when a beautiful billionaire widow offers him $1 million to track down the 400 lb. child predator who raped her daughter…and then offers him $4 million more to execute him. Jack’s moral code is put to the test when he comes face to face  with pure evil in a den of sin and sickness and must decide if righteousness can ever come from the end of a gun…and if the scars on his soul would be worth the bullets and blood.

This short story combines the sharp dialogue and gallows humor of hardboiled fiction with the graphic intensity of hardcore horror.

                To kill or not to kill, that is the question.  In Mark’s story, The Killing Question, his main character is caught with that question.  Now unlike his story that I reviewed previously, this is not a romance in anyway.  This story is one that although it is violent in nature, it shows in a sense something that every person has thought about at one point.
                The details that Mark includes in his story, even going as deep as the way that the man’s breath smells, it carries onto the rest of the story.  One of the things that I did like about this story was when the Jack was faced with the question; he didn’t jump for the money right away.  When he was first searching for the man, he did not plan on killing him.
                Although this book is graphic, and not for the weak of heart, I think this story shows something that many people have thought about in their lives.
