Cly is a hit man. He organizes "accidents" for his boss Ed Ganolese. Trouble hits Ed when his pusher, Billy-Billy, gets himself hooked on drugs and goes on the run. But someone else is also looking for Billy-Billy, someone bigger than Ed and with more muscle.
Praise for The Mercenaries
“The ‘organization man’, who answers to -- and does not argue with -- the boss, is George Clayton who takes care of ""accidents"" when there is interference in operating. The death of a model, the disappearance of a junkie, and the threats to the delivery and distribution of narcotics, put Clay in a fast moving protective action. Other deaths, other crimes -- and Clay's abandoned morality is jolted. A roughed up first.”- Kirkus
