Portland Public Library hosts Chris Holm at the Brown Bag Lecture Series
Location: Main Library
In THE KILLING KIND Michael Hendricks kills people for money. That aside, he’s not such a bad guy. Once a covert operative for a false-flag unit of the US military and now presumed dead after a mission in Afghanistan that went awry, he left behind his old life and set out on a path of redemption…or perhaps one of willful self-destruction. Now Hendricks makes his living as a hit man entrepreneur of sorts: he only hits other hit men. Not a bad way for a guy with his skill-set to make a living, but a great way to make himself a target.
