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.
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.
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
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
