It’s the mean-streets of L.A. in the mid-1980s. When The Owl rescues a young punk-rock starlet from being kidnapped, he considered it just a minor good deed with a few dead bodies left scattered around. But he soon discovers that she’s the target of a gangland conspiracy that has half of the city’s underworld after her. Now the only thing between her and certain death is The Owl.
When the law can’t help you, only one man can. Alexander L’Hiboux is justice-for-hire, a man who never sleeps, who never stops hunting his lawless prey. Astonishingly-original and action-packed, Bob Forward’s debut thriller is a pure adrenaline rush.
The most daring and original hero in crime fiction returns in Bob Forward’s dazzling follow up to The Owl. This time, Alexander L’Hiboux takes down a gangland conspiracy in an action packed adventure you have to read to believe.
It starts off over the top and builds from there. There’s action aplenty. The Owl absorbs more punishment than any two or three or four people in other novels
Exhilarating! A pure action high unlike anything I’ve ever read before. The Owl is a cross between Batman and The Terminator ... but he’s even more deadly and relentless
