The Killing Kind
Michael Hendricks kills people for money. Once a covert operative for a false-flag unit of the U.S. military, Hendricks was presumed dead after a mission in Afghanistan went sideways. He left behind his old life--and his beloved fiancée--and set out on a path of redemption. Now Hendricks makes his living as a hitman entrepreneur of sorts--he only hits other hitmen. For ten times the price on your head, he'll make sure whoever's coming to kill you winds up in the ground instead. Not a bad way for a guy with his skill-set to make a living--but a great way to make himself a target. A clever, fast-moving thriller.

Everyone could benefit from seeing further into the future, whether it’s buying stocks, launching a new product, or planning this week’s meals. Unfortunately, people tend to be terrible forecasters.

What made these people so good? And can this talent be taught?
