Who Is Hitman Jake?
Hitman Jake is an old-school Baltimore hitman, Jake Burton, who originally appeared in Preston Pairo’s legal thriller, Her Honor.
In his 50’s, Jake is struggling to keep up with all the changes in technology that make being a hitman so much trickier than when he started (when all he needed was a gun and some bullets). Now, there are cameras and security systems, and wi-fi and cellular signals, not to mention clients who want to pay in something called Bitcoins. All of which makes Jake grouchy and has him working with a partner for the first time in his career: a Millennial hacker named Loiza Ely, whose inquisitive nature and Romanian gypsy heritage make for interesting conversation.
The Hitman Jake stories can be read in any sequence, but reading them in order will make the experience more like a book.
