To Raise a Killer . . .

Jasper has now been a trained assassin for decades. Not only does he kill for a living, he has continued in Foster’s footsteps – raising a ‘family' of his own. Lost souls of the departed. Children who should be dead. Saved by Jasper.
To Raise a Killer . . .
Now, Jasper must contend with the imminent return of his most accomplished protégé, Gulliver. He decides to tell him everything - his life, how he came to be the man he is now, and what has happened to the family since he left. Only, there is someone else out there determined to stop Jasper and find the lost and missing. And they'll stop at nothing to bring an end to what Jasper has built.
