The world is an ugly place, and I can tell you now, I fit in just fine.
Lily is the only person Leon ever loved. When she left a suicide note and disappeared into a murky lake ten years ago, she left him alone, drifting through a silent landscape.
Or did she?
A postcard in her handwriting pulls Leon to the winter-cold concrete heart of New York City.
What he discovers unleashes a deadly rage that has no sound.
A grisly trail of clues leads to The Bear, the sadistic Russian crime lord who traffics in human flesh. The police—some corrupt, some merely compromised—are of little help. They don’t like Leon’s methods, or the mess he leaves in his wake.
Leon is deaf, but no sane person would ever call him disabled. He survived as a child on the merciless streets of Nigeria. He misses nothing. He feels no remorse. The only direction he’s ever known is forward.
He will not stop until he knows.
Where is Lily?
Review by DAR Bookworm
Well what can I say – what a great read, had me hooked from start to finish. One of the only times I wished my commute to work was longer, and in fact I nearly missed my bus twice as I was too busy reading this book. Basically a brother receives a post card from his sister so knows she needs help. He sets off to find her and encounters a whole heap of trouble. Is a search and rescue mission or is it a revenge mission? I’m not going to tell you, you will have to read it to find out. Five stars from me, I loved it.
