The most daring and original hero in crime fiction… in a debut novel that’s a relentless, pure-adrenaline rush.
It’s the mid-1980s. Crime in Los Angeles is running rampant. When the law can’t help you, there is one man who can: Alexander L’Hiboux, whose ability to sleep was destroyed in the ghastly tragedy that cost him his family. Now he’s justice-for-hire, prowling the streets and solving crimes with deadly finality. A desperate, grief-stricken shipping magnate hires The Owl to find the scum who brutalized his daughter…a quest that uncovers a shocking conspiracy that will rock the city.
“Mike Hammer is a wimp compared to The Owl,” Bill Crider, author of Outrage at Blanco and the bestselling Sheriff Dan Rhoades mysteries
