Mr. Smoke - Robert Preston Walker
Mr. Smoke was free when I got it. It's now $9.99 for the kindle. I'm not even sure what kind of novel to call this. The author calls the genre "visionary". Maybe he was having a vision when he wrote it. Damon Gray's parents and grandparents were killed by terrorists. As a result Damon becomes a terrorist assassin named Mr. Smoke. Damon also has special powers as an enhanced human. This book seems to ramble around, more like a diary or journal than a novel. Parts are really interesting and parts make no sense in the context of a story about a terrorist assassin. At times it was like a middle school boy's dream of sex. I read to the end because I wanted to see how the author was going to tie all the disparate parts together. It wasn't pretty, but it was tied up. Sort of recommended, in a masochistic kind of way.
