SPOILERSAgnes and the Hitman

Quote: cranky agnes column #62
"Just Like Mother Used to Fake"
Many of us have a recipe passed down to us by our own mothers that pretty much sums up our childhood memories in an ingredient list. In my case, it was "One chilled glass, two parts Tanqueray, wave at the vermouth bottle, stir clockwise if you're north of the equator, and for God's sake, Agnes, don't bruise the gin." Yours was probably a can of cream of mushroom soup poured over a can of green beans. That mother who made baked Alaska from scratch? She also screamed, "No wire hangers!" Those overachievers always have a dark side.
These little blurbs from Cranky Agnes' columns on each of the chapter pages are delightful. I also really enjoyed the mob intrigue but for most part it was just a lot of chaos to prop up Agnes and the Hitman falling for each other in like 2 days and having sex a lot. I...don't know why I don't read reviews/blurbs properly, I could probably prevent this stuff from happening more. Luckily, I have seen too much and poorly written love scenes are the least of the horrors.
