Description:
Hitman Anders is fresh out of prison and trying to keep his head down when he meets a female Protestant vicar (who happens to be an atheist), and a receptionist at a 1-star hotel (who happens to be currently homeless). Together they cook up an idea for a very unusual business that's going to make them all a fortune - but then all of a sudden, and to everyone's surprise, Anders finds Jesus. Anders' sudden interest in religion might be good for his soul but it's not good for business, and the vicar and the receptionist have to find a new plan, quick.

This story is hilarious, well written and I was laughing out loud at the antics of the main characters. I’m not sure which character I liked best, the reformed hitman, the faithless priest or her reserved husband. Enjoy!!
