This book came to my attention following a review request email, direct from Kelsey McBride, of Book Publicity Services.
The premise of the book sounded so unique and interesting, that my imagination was piqued and I signed up there and then!
Just one small caveat however! …. The storyline is quite intense and there are no holds barred in the violence stakes! … So I am afraid that I won’t be publishing the planned excerpt from the book.
Check Out – ‘NOISE’
The world is an ugly place, and I can tell you now, I fit in just fine.
Lily is the only person Leon ever loved. When she left a suicide note and disappeared into a murky lake ten years ago, she left him alone, drifting through a silent landscape.
Or did she?
A postcard in her handwriting pulls Leon to the winter-cold concrete heart of New York City.
What he discovers unleashes a deadly rage that has no sound.
A grisly trail of clues leads to The Bear, the sadistic Russian crime lord who traffics in human flesh. The police—some corrupt, some merely compromised—are of little help. They don’t like Leon’s methods, or the mess he leaves in his wake.
Leon is deaf, but no sane person would ever call him disabled. He survived as a child on the merciless streets of Nigeria. He misses nothing. He feels no remorse. The only direction he’s ever known is forward.
He will not stop until he knows.
Where is Lily?

I’m a strong believer that in any good story or novel, each individual scene should be able to stand on its own merit, outside of the collective work. If it can’t, it’s probably not vital to the story. And if it’s not vital to the story, kill it. Even long, dense works of fiction are made up of the same small blocks: words, sentences, and scenes.
