Billy Summers

“The dumb self might be a shuck, but this is true: he only does bad people.  It’s how he sleeps at night.  It goes without saying that he has made a living working for bad people, yes, but Billy doesn’t see this as a moral conundrum. He has no problem with bad people paying to have other bad people killed.  He basically sees himself as a garbageman with a gun.”

Intimacies

“That was, I thought, the prospect offered by a new relationship, the opportunity to be someone other than yourself.”

This is a solid mystery that explores racial tensions, regrets, and intolerance.
