Review: The Deadly Rose - J.M. Lominy

Pierre-André François is handsome, intelligent, and the greatest soccer player in Haitian history. He also has a well-kept secret; he is an assassin. In fact, Pierre-André François is the vile and feared Haitian assassin known as The Little Rose. Like a skilled painter, he kills with style and finesse, bringing death in broad purposeful strokes and sweeps of red. Signing each piece of work with a fragrant red rose.
It took me a while to get into the story, it dragged in the beginning then picked up after a chapter or two. After that I was able to enjoy the author’s writing style. The story did keep me interested, for the most part. I felt as though I could experience what life was like in Haiti. I was able to find out some interesting facts.
I wished the author would have wrapped the story up, but judging from the ending, there might be a sequel. I’m interested to see how things may play out in the future.
Overall, it was an okay read for me. I would recommend this book if you are looking for something new to pique your interest.
3 Stars
