Once Dead, by Richard Phillips

This book takes a very unusual twist to the "ex-CIA assassin now saving fair maidens" genre. The hero, Gregory, is about to die from wounds in Kolcata when an alien force makes him an offer. By agreeing to host the alien, Gregory gets to live. On the other hand, with a bit more bloodlust than he previously had.

Fast forward to Gregory having been considered dead by the CIA, working as "The Ripper," fixing problems for those maidens...

As for the rest of the novel: bad guys, they do bad things, they die. Good guys mostly win. As you'd expect. I intend to read the sequel.
