FORT WASHINGTON, Md. – Author Reicko Antonio whets readers’ appetite for Michael Valentine’s violent escapades in “Michael Valentine: Diary of a Hitman.” Not wanting to disappoint, he pens its sequel, “Michael Valentine: Diary of a Hitman 2” (published by Xlibris), to deliver more of the visceral action, violence, drugs and sex that appealed to his readers.

This action-packed, urban-street, crime-thriller continues Michael Valentine’s savage journey as the underworld’s notorious number one hit-man. He drinks from the cup of prosperity on a divided road of deliverance and self-destruction, surrounded by family, associates and enemies, thirsting to come up in a world filled with greed, drugs and corruption. Contracted to the most powerful crime-bosses in the Metropolitan Area and on the East Coast, feeds his addictions to sex, murder and power as he struggles with the scars left behind from his mother’s death and the abuse of a mentor responsible for destroying his life.

“Everyone’s past is the DNA of their future,” says Antonio, “Family, loyalty and betrayal; money and power over everything.” His novel paints a dark and savage world where no one is safe and nothing is predictable. It is a story meant to make readers hate a man who kills people for a living but, at the same time, hold them enthralled as they cannot help but sympathize and understand his motives.
