New York, 1977. Big K is a Mafia family hit-man and his latest hit is Pesci, a member of the family who is believed to have been in contact with the FBI. It’s a routine job but who is “Big K”?
He’s the product of street violence and violence within the home, having, as a child, seen his father kill his brother Jack with his bare hands in a fit of rage. But there is more to Big K: he is both a hit-man and serial-killer –darkness incarnate!
The cover is slightly deceptive because you open up the book and the frontispiece is a beautiful colour sketch. You then get taken through Big Ks childhood memories and how he became what he is. This is violent and pretty uncompromising with the art and colour work carries the story through from street to night-club and even the wharf –where things get very violent.
