Summary

Jake's a hitman, so his jobs are usually pretty straight-forward. Not this time, though. He could never have foreseen what he walked into.

Good at his job.

Jake was good - at his job. At least, he said so: after all, if be wasn't, he wouldn't still be doing it. A short story, well written and involving from the start. Narration, by Matthew E. Berry, is excellent, told with expression. Recommended

Twisted

This story was well written. I did not see the plot twist coming. I would like to hear more of this storyline. It was well worth the listen.

Twist O Rama

WoW! What a great little short story. This is my first Travis McBee offering and I will be looking for more. You think Jake is the man and then Stephen comes in and he's the man...Oh! and 4 more and Stephen will be a cat..That's all I am going to say, I don't want to spoil it for you Matthew E. Berry does a great job of narrating. I was provided an audiobook code by the author, narrator and FABC.and this is my voluntary unbiased review.

Short treat.

Very quick listen. although Inknew something was up still enjoyed the turn the book took. As do most great short stories, it had the making for a much bigger book but was peffect the way it was. The narrator did a decent job of reading this. Worth the count.

Hit Me

It’s okay. Story flowed okay but it wasn’t edge-if-your-seat nor thrilling. Writing was okay but not gripping. Narrator was really good. This is my voluntary review of an audiobook received for free.

All I can say is WOW

An Unusual Job is a fast paced short well written story with a creative plot. The twist is a total WOW I did not see that coming. The writing is descriptive and entertaining. The plot is not what you believe it is absolutely creative and phenomenal. I received this book per my request and it is an absolutely amazing must read/listen. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Short, Action-Packed, Unexpected!!

Jake is a hitman. He is hired for a new job, not ending up how he expected. What a masterful action packed short story! It had an interesting twist which was unexpected and fascinating! Matt's narration was perfect, i couldnt have imagined a better performer for this story. Short, thrilling and worth it! Note: This book was given to me for free at my request and i provided this objective review voluntarily.
