The Plotters by Un-su Kim

Now this was a wacky book. It’s about a hitman who works for a Plotter. A Plotter is the mastermind of the hits, who assigns missions to hitmen. There is some drama between some of the Plotters and the hitman is caught in the middle of it. Then the hitman works together with some unlikely allies and fights back.

This was a short, weird, and cool little book. I love the setting, and the whole concept of Plotters. It feels like medieval guilds, and their codes of honour.

Not much else to say about this, read it if you like strange, but interesting translated fiction from Korea.
