We think of a human life as priceless beyond measure, but there are men among us who will end a life for a fistful of dollars.These men are the hit men, striking a contract with someone who has a target - and the cash.

In a world of ever-increasing outsourcing, contract killing has become the white middleclass way of murder. The Hit Men tells the stories of some of Australias most ruthless contract killers - their plots, accomplices, victims, crimes and punishments - and of the people who saw fit to employ them.John Kerr dissects a parade of hits, from the days of Sydneys razor gangs in the 1930s to more modern times, taking a fresh look on the way at the man they called Rent-a-Kill -- Christopher Dale Flannery.

Kerr traces the tragic path of Dennis Allens hired Red Rat, tells of the bungled Are you Les? hit, and examines the crimes that led to a mothers death on a bed beside her six-year-old son. He gives unflinching accounts of a man who killed his granny, wives who shopped for their husbands killers, and cashed-up criminals who called in favours to arrange the deaths of their enemies.A chilling account of how quickly ordinary people can turn to extreme violence to get what they want.
