NOIR WITH ORIGINALITY and a unique twist.-Sam Millar, New York Journal of Books
ELEGANT AND COMPLETELY ORIGINAL. This sleekly genre-building thriller is like nothing you've ever read.
-Hank Phillipi Ryan, Award Winning Author of The Wrong Girl
I LOVED THIS BOOK. This novel gives us a whole new genre of noir. Introspective noir. Almost metaphysical in its subtle understatement. But make no mistake, it is vastly entertaining. That rare breed. A thinking persons' artistic vivid entertainment.-Ken Bruen, Best Selling Author of Purgatory
IT'S NICE TO SEE CERTAIN HEROES emerge that still value a suit.-Dan Levy, The Big Thrill
THOSE WHO CRAVE AN ACTION-PACKED THRILLER with a generous seasoning of noir will gobble up this debut.
THIS SHOULD COME WITH A WARNING: whatever you’re expecting, this isn’t it. The opening is a shocker....Catch the sly Bond references, like suits made of Sea Island cotton, and give the author a chance to make his points.
-Don Crinklaw, Booklist
THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I've read in a long time. If you're looking for a fast paced adventure this is the book. I was hooked from the very first page.
Luke Stark, a Special Forces veteran, returns home from his second tour in Afghanistan to learn that his wife has been mysteriously murdered and his son has disappeared. These tragedies, in addition to suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, push him over the edge. He has also been diagnosed with an incipient form of cancer, but he forgoes treatment, a decision that is akin to a slow suicide.
Although he languishes in a shelter, he wears an impeccable suit, an eccentric characteristic that sets him apart from his fellow down-and-outers and just about everybody else. He is nicknamed, somewhat ironically, The Suited Hero. Revenge and the search for his son spark a kind of rebirth in him that is as cathartic as it is brutal. This leads him into the dangerous world of illegal prescription drug distribution, where nobody in this gripping mystery crime thriller- not even some family members-is who they appear to be.
