Who is Conrad Hirst?

"Who is Conrad Hirst?" was Kevin Wignall's fourth book, and was first published in the USA in 2007. It tells the story of a ruthless contract killer, working for a German crime boss. But something has happened on Conrad's last job and he's decided to get out, the only way he knows how - by killing the only four people who can identify him. His plans quickly begin to unravel though, as do the certainties of his world. "I lied," says his handler in their final confrontation, "About everything." So it is that Conrad discovers that he hasn't been working for a crime boss, but for an organization that's much less keen to let him go.

"Who is Conrad Hirst?" was received well and was short-listed for both the prestigious Edgar Award and the Barry Award (both in the USA). Once again, this book was not published in the UK, but it's now available there as a Kindle e-book and has also been published in Finland, Germany (as "Die Letzte Wahrheit"), Japan and Poland. As with K's other books, there has been a great deal of film interest and the book has previously been optioned but is not currently in development.
