“THE WORLD IS AN UGLY PLACE, and I can tell you now, I fit in just fine. You will read what I have written, you will see what I have done, you will judge me and, in the end, you will hate me. But I write of love. My name is Leon. This is my story.”
Leon receives a cryptic message about the whereabouts of his long lost sister Lily. He travels to New York to find her and even goes to the police for help, but when no answers are forthcoming he does his own investigating to find the men responsible for Lily’s disappearance.
Fast-paced, well-written and beautifully phrased, this thriller was quite a surprise to get into. Leon is deaf but incredibly resourceful and determined to find his adopted sister, using the skills he has to track down clues to find out what has happened to her. There is a fair bit of violence in this thriller which definitely isn’t for the faint hearted but it is in keeping with the story.
A beautifully executed thrilling debut thriller.
