Michael Gruber's forthcoming novel, "The Return," is thrilling and action packed.
In 2012, Stephen King named Gruber's previously best-selling novel, "The Good Son," as one of his favorite books. As thought-provoking as it is exciting, "The Return" is sure to follow a similar path, educating readers about the drug wars tearing apart regions of Mexico and proving just how far a need for revenge can go.
Only an old army buddy from Vietnam, Patrick Skelly, knows what Richard Marder is truly capable of. When a shattering piece of news awakens Marder's buried desire for vengeance, and with nothing left to lose, he sets off to punish the people whose actions, years earlier, changed his life. A range of fearsomely real characters, from a brutally violent Mexican crime lord to a daringly courageous young woman, join Skelly and Marder and together they raise the stakes far beyond anything Marder could have envisioned.
Intelligent and gripping, Kirkus gave it a starred review, exclaiming that "Gruber has a gift for seamlessly combining the visceral with the cerebral, without any degradation of quality on either side of the coin. He will have readers ruminating on ideas of identity, history, mortality, family, fate, and the complex and destructive relationship between Mexico and its neighbor El Norte, all while simultaneously thrilling their pants off, which is a rare and wonderful thing. Like Gruber's other books, this novel puts the work of other thriller writers to shame and raises the quality bar for the genre to a precipitously high level…Thrilling and compulsively readable."
