Kill Me If You Can by James Patterson and Marshall Karp is the story of Matthew Bannon, an ex-Marine turned quaint and quiet art student. Nothing extraordinary here, just another art student that's fallen in love with his art teacher. Or is there?
The Diamond Syndicate is missing diamonds, the Russians who run the business are firing mad. The man who stole them, a former employee of the Syndicate, Walter Zelvas, was ordered assasinated by a mysterious kill-for-hire by the name of Ghost. Except, after the job is done, one lucky art student happens across the diamonds and becomes more than just a starving artist.
While taking his art teacher lover on a trip around the world, back home the Diamond Syndicate is hounding Boss Chukov to get them their diamonds back. So Chukov sends out the Ghost to catch the kid and also sends out German Marta Krall. He hopes that in the end the two will kill each other and he'd get his diamonds. So how does this puny art punk get out alive? Is he able to out manuever both of the most well known kill-for-hires of this time?
Kill Me If You Can is found at all major book vendors.
