A contract killer gets caught “In the Crosshairs” (published by iUniverse) after he makes a dangerous mistake, risking the lives of people he loves. To set things right, he hunts down the villain who set him up. RJ Demers’ new novel follows the trail of blood he leaves in his wake as he gets even – with extreme prejudice.

Chris Slaughter is a hit man with everything going his way. He has got the money, the car, the girl and the career. Chris decides to call it quits and give up the contract killing business for good, but one vital mistake unfortunately puts him right back in the game. Unfortunately, this one error now changes Slaughter from the hunter to the hunted. A single shot from his rifle puts his life and the lives of those he loves in danger. Only he can fix the mistake and figure out who set him up, but in order to do so, he enters into the criminal underbelly of organized crime and gangs. What he really seeks is forgiveness, as he wonders if his job has sent him straight to Hell.

He will go through anything to get his life back, from gun battles to car chases. He needs God’s help to find the people who wrecked his life, but when he finds them, they are going to pay the cost of righteous injustice – all while Demers’ readers get a front row seat to the ensuing carnage.
