Brick Colton has been hired to kill Santa Claus—or at least the kindhearted accountant playing Santa for the kids in an orphanage. Brick grew up in an orphanage himself, but that isn’t the only thing bothering him about the contract on Robin Marvington’s life. The details don’t add up, and it’s looking more and more like someone has set Robin up. As Brick investigates, Robin brings some much-needed cheer into his life, the light in Robin’s soul reaching something in Brick’s dark one. But all of that will end if they can’t find the person who wants Robin dead.

Christmas short stories are often a very quick, enjoyably fluffy, read. Some, however, feel more like a full length novel. Their characters are fully fleshed out, back stories impressively written and the story itself is unexpected and totally satisfying. Happily, An Assassin's Holiday by Dirk Greyson, falls into the latter category. 

Brick Colton is an assassin for hire. He's a ruthless killer who feels no remorse during or after completion of a 'job'. When he's hired to kill Robin Marvington, an accountant by day, and volunteer and benefactor of children's orphanages by night, Brick feels like he's been hired to kill Santa Claus. This humble, kindhearted man, with blue eyes that pierce the cold armour Brick's built around his soul, is the first person he's ever questioned killing. He begins to wonder if Robin has been set up. No man this kind can have done anything to make him Brick's target. 

Robin Marvington is a quite, gentle accountant living a simple life whilst helping children in need. When Brick Colton enters his apartment and announces he has a contract to kill him, Robin can't believe his ears. Who could he possibly have annoyed enough to want him dead, and why is this dangerously hot man offering to help, rather than harm, him? As the two men sit down to try to solve this mystery they find they have more in common than either could have imagined. Solving Robin's dilemma, whilst dealing with the fiery attraction between them, will take time. Time they may or may not have. 

An Assassin's Holiday is extremely well written and has a plot worthy of a full length novel. It will keep you riveted from page one and have you guessing until the very end. By the end you will also feel that you know all about these two, extremely hot, men and the motivations behind the paths they've each taken in their lives. 

A very satisfying 5 star read!
