Hero: A Novel
Justine Poole possesses a keen eye for knowing and assessing problematic situations. She works security for the firm Spengler-Nash and guards high-value targets. Any missteps could prove fatal to her clients. She had just concluded her recent assignment when she was contacted by her boss Ben Spengler. Spengler believes the clients he is guarding are about to be ambushed and he calls Justine for backup.
Spengler’s instincts prove accurate and soon they are engaged in a firefight with a group of murderous thieves. Justine takes down two of the bandits and the police apprehend the remainder. Justine is soon lauded for her heroic actions, but she has raised the ire of the robbers’ boss. The crime boss orders Poole’s execution and contracts the hit to a precision executioner named Sealy. Soon, Justine must adjust to a life in the shadows as she has become the prey.
Hero is the new gripping mystery-thriller from Thomas Perry (The Old Man). The intense cat-and-mouse game that develops between Poole and Sealy provides a large amount of the suspense and excitement that runs throughout this gem of a read. Perry’s brilliant pacing of the story will keep the reader guessing until the very end.
