Lemon, Salt, Shot of Tequila - Start Shooting!!

Jack Fleming was assumed to have been killed in Afghanistan five and half years ago.  It seems that on most days, he might have wished that were true.  But like the saying goes - if were easy, everyone would do it.

Tequila Assassin: Malinalli Way by Greg Prosmushkin is a book that starts out of the gate with action, and doesn't let up until the end.  Buckle up, because if you read this book, you will be in for a ride.  Don't wait for the movie - it won't be as good as the book.  I promise.

Jack thought it was just a simple hit job on a creep who probably had it coming anyways.  But after too many double crosses to count, losing body parts, and serving up a seven foot buffet up to a swine - the story goes from not just enjoyable, but to full-on "can't put this down."

What makes this book even more remarkable is that according to the acknowledgements, the author, Greg Prosmushkin, is the co-founder of Malinalli Tequila.  He fully admits to shamelessly cross marketing his product in the book right up front.  When I read this, my first thought was - great, this guy is expecting me to read a 172 page commercial.  You know what?  If Prosmushkin's Tequila is as good as this book - I am going to quit writing this post and head on down to a bar and have a few shots!


-  I don't know if Prosmushkin has written anything else, or plans to - but if Jack Fleming does have more missions in him, I am shamelessly going to request an advance copy to review!

-  The story is told from Jack Fleming's point of view, who describes the story through his very Alpha Male point of view.  Prosmushkin never tries to turn Jack Fleming into something that he is not to appease the reader - and for this I am thankful.

-  Absolutely no issues with grammar or spelling.


- There are none.  And that's not the tequila talking.  Hey bartender!  Why is this glass empty!!!

(I purchased this book after seeing it on a few different sites - something I don't do often for reviews, but for some reason, it just felt right.)

(There is strong violence, drug use, and language - This book is for mature audiences only)
