Tim Rackley, a deputy U.S. marshal, watches helplessly as his daughter's killer walks free on a legal technicality. He is suddenly forced to explore his own deadly options, a quest that leads him into the welcoming fold of "The Commission". A vigilante group made up of people like himself, relentless streetwise operators who have each lost a loved one to violent crime, the Commission confronts the failings of a system that sets predators loose to hunt again, cleaning up society's "mistakes" covertly, efficiently, and permanently. But Rackley soon discovers that playing God is a fearsome task. When his new secret life starts coming unwound at an alarming speed, he is suddenly caught in the most terrifying struggle he has ever faced, a desperate battle to save everything left that's worth fighting for.

Critic reviews

"Hurwitz's deft descriptions of Tim's methods of disappearing, breaking-and-entering, and stealing identities are convincing, and his fast-paced plotting will keep readers riveted." ( Publishers Weekly)

Expected more

The Nowhere Man and Orphan X by the same author are both superb. This one is okay but not in the same league.

A very good read

If you could sum up The Kill Clause in three words, what would they be?

Conspiracy, scheming deception

What did you like best about this story?

I like not really knowing which the book was going

Which scene was your favorite?

I guess my favorite scene was towards the end when the main character had his back up against the wall - and got out of the situation

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, no extreme reactions

A little over the top for me

This book in my opinion could have ended up in Science Fiction. Main plot over the top for me.
