Who is Crete Sloan?
Crete Sloan is a walking paradox. An international hit man for the good guys who loves Mozart, a certified marksman who’d rather read Dickens than shoot guns, a lover of women, but never married.
He was born and raised Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where his father worked in a steel mill and ran a small bar and restaurant. Actually, his mother ran the bar, and the family, the three of them, lived in an apartment above it. Sloan had no siblings. When he wasn’t working in the mill, Sloan’s father worked the numbers racket out of the bar and instilled in Sloan a strong sense of independence and loyalty.
