"The slow burning, yet fast paced unfolding narrative is gritty, and raw... hardboiled, noir fans will appreciate Guillaume’s handiwork.”

“Admittedly the prologue snared my attention and never let go. The slow burning, yet fast paced unfolding narrative is gritty, and raw. A request for vengeance snowballs leading Solo to avenge for his own personal reasons with unleashed action and excitement. The lurid violence fitting, its towering edge in alignment with plot and players.

I was held hostage by Solo. Solo is the captor of this narrative. He’s part beast, part saint. We follow the scant tracks learning of Solo’s back story regarding his personal and professional life, enough arousing the reader for specifics, for now its mere foreplay. Solo is smooth, smart, gritty and reckless – on the precipice of life and death which translates to a death wish leaving him in a state of limbo making him lethal. As you learn of his loss, his hard exterior has fissures, in this wounded man there is a infiltratable center noticeable at poignant moments, his daily mask is ironhearted. Still grieving, Solo is a nomad drifting in the depths of his pain. He’s fascinating, an emotional wreck, he’s consuming. The supporting cast from angels to demons equally memorable, seemly in plot...

Guillaume’s law enforcement background along with his solid writing coalesces nicely. I will say the translation is excellent. Hardboiled, noir fans will appreciate Guillaume’s handiwork.” —The Discerning Reader
