Death Is A Stranger by Henry T. Smithcategory : CRIME & THRILLERS

There was no direct evidence that Royle had been forced to kill three young men of his own age, and the police had credited them to his murderous ex-employer anyway. Then Albert Brewer, brother of one of the violators turned victim, came out of prison and into money from his last job. Brewer shared information that was not available to the police with George Markham, the father of another of the trio. Royle was a loose end.
   Brewer knew that Royle and Markham's son had both worked for the same organization as small-time cocaine smugglers. Another man had died while proving that Royle was armed and dangerous to know.
   A web of circumstance tightened around him. The killer of Albert Brewer's brother had to die too as a matter of honour.

   Markham, under threat from a blackmailer, was also looking for permanent solutions to his problems. Six months earlier, others had been trying to reschedule Royle's incarnation, as his assassin friend Robert Parker put it. He was in the same trouble again...
