PERPS by Edward Wellen
Released: April 1, 2001

"By and large, though, this collection has no spark, no edge, not much reason for being."

AN HOUR TO KILL by Edward Wellen
Released: June 9, 1993

"Still, Wellen's hardcover debut (after the paperback Hijack, 1971) does have you rooting for his antihero—and his escape into the bay does have you wondering whether he'll pop up again."
Passing through Miami after completing a hit, assassin-for- hire Mal (a.k.a Harry Pace, Philip Oom, etc.) sees beautiful Marita Garcia being roughed up by Felipe Diaz, younger brother of south Florida drug kingpin Ramon, and in an inexplicable—for him—moment of chivalry, Mal kills the creep.
