18. He did buy a book about how to be a hit man
I didn't save the link, but I'll look for it.

Hit Man:
A Technical Manual for
Independent Contractors
by Rex Feral ~ 1983


Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors is a book written under the pseudonym Rex Feral and published by Paladin Press in 1983. It has been claimed that the book started life as a detailed crime novel written by a Florida housewife, and that the format was later changed to appeal to Paladin's reader base. The book portrays itself as a how-to manual on starting a career as a hit man, fulfilling contracts.

Existing copies at Paladin Press were destroyed after the book was found to be used as a guide during a triple murder in 1993. It is believed that 13,000 copies were sold, although Reason Magazine estimates there are 20,000 copies of the book in existence.



I looked at his feedback record and wondered the same thing as you did.
