Chilling works of literary noir: "Hopler has tracked down a remarkable number of hit-man stories by a remarkable collection of authors." —New York Press

This unique collection of writings about hired killers includes stories, screenplays, and even poems—plus an appendix listing hit-man films.

Including works by such writers as Ernest Hemingway, Graham Greene, T. Coraghessan Boyle, Patricia Highsmith, Charles Bukowski, Bharati Mukherjee, Damon Runyon, and Robert Lowell, The Killing Spirit is not only an anthology of top-tier crime fiction but a deep dive into the psychology of those who kill for a living—and the people who pay them.
