Like A Hole in The Head by James Hadley Chase

He had nine days to turn a gun shy boy into an expert killer. Or else........

Jay Benson had been one of the U.S. Army's top snipers. In Vietnam he'd killed eighty-two Vietcong. But making the School of Shooting he'd taken over outside Paradise City pay was a tougher proposition than the Vietnamese jungle. So when the sinister Augusto Savanto turned up with an offer of fifty thousand dollars if Jay turned his gun shy son into an expert shot in just nine days, he accepted. Then he discovered the horrific reason why Savanto wanted his son made into a marksman. But there was no backing out now for Jay. Savanto was holding his beautiful young wife Lucy as a hostage for his cooperation.
