The Prone Gunman (City Lights Noir) by Jean-Patrick Manchette

Martin Terrier is a hired killer who wants out of the game-so he can settle down and marry his childhood sweetheart. After all, thats why he took up this profession! But the Organization wont let him go: they have other plans. Once again, the gunman must assume the prone shooting position. A tour de force, this violent tale shatters as many illusions about life and politics as bodies. Jean-Patrick Manchette (1942a__1995) rescued the French crime novel from the grip of stodgy police procedurals, restoring the noir edge by virtue of his post-1968 leftism. Manchette is a totem to a generation of French mystery writers, and his stories have inspired several films, including Claude Chabrols Nada.
