The Ax - Donald E Westlake Bill MacDonald's review piqued my interest in this book. And luckily enough, it was available at the library! I was not even aware of [a:Donald E. Westlake|30953|Donald E. Westlake|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1336863543p2/30953.jpg]'s works a few days back, so I thought this would be a good chance to change that.

And tell you what, I am already a fan!

The plot of this book is simple enough. A man in his early fifties gets laid off from his job and remains jobless for a couple of years due to severe competition. What to do? Remove the competition. Permanently, of course!

There was not even a single dull moment in the entire book and to top it all off, the ending was even more brilliant.

To cut a long story short, this is one of the most brilliantly horrific yet enjoyable books I have ever read in the crime genre.
