Lee Thompson’s latest Crime/Mystery novel, IT’S ONLY DEATH, is available for pre-order on Amazon. You can grab a copy here!
The first review has come in from Dangerous Dan’s Book Blog. He says:
“This is one of those books that’s hard to quantify. Is it a noir tale at redemption? Is it about family and loss? Does it emphasize that we all make our own choice and life is a circle? Or is it about a bunch of fuck-knuckles doing each other dirty? Yes. I’d say it’s all those things.”
Six years ago James blew town after killing his cop-father in a bank job gone bad. When his sister informs him that their mother’s health is fading fast, he returns home, wanting to make peace with her before she passes.
But James quickly finds there is little peace left for him at his childhood home.
His father’s old partner has been biding his time, waiting for a chance at retribution, and finally discovers James is back. But he’s only one of the many shady characters James must face if he is to survive the next few days.
Not only must James survive his return, he must also face the devastation he left behind, the shattered pieces of what remained of his life before he was forced to run.
Now his days on the run are over.
Upon the edge of reckoning, James’s past comes full circle to the final showdown with his personal demons and the devils that are closing in.
It’s Only Death is an explosive, gritty tale of urban crime and one man’s descent into the nightmares in the darkest recesses of our society.
