Stryker is a former British commando who, during a ferocious fit of good luck and bad temper, wins the Victoria Cross in Afghanistan. On leaving the army, and just two days after he's told that he was adopted as a baby, his adoptive parents are killed in a terrorist attack aimed at him. He then discovers that on the day he was born, his real father, Joe Corcoran, butchered to death the world light heavyweight boxing champion and his family. Stryker goes over to the States to see this monster who is his real father, now rotting in Sing Sing. Stryker soon realises his new-found dad is framed by vicious New York crime boss, Felix Watchman who orders the boxer's murder because he refuses to take a dive in a world championship fight, thereby costing Watchman millions of dollars in lost bets. The boxer and his family are all brutally killed to send out a message to anyone else who might be thinking of crossing Watchman. Stryker infiltrates Watchman's gang in order to prove his dad innocent.
He soon teams up with Watchman's daughter, the beautiful Danielle DiCaro, who also has good reason to hate her father and together they set about trying to prove Joe innocent, which is a deadly task considering the merciless man they're up against. A man who is quite prepared to kill his own daughter if she goes against him, and who does indeed order her death. Stryker soon proves himself to be Watchman's most effective soldier, especially in the turf war against Fatos Mustafaj, a vicious Albanian pimp.
There is humour in the book, as there is in all Ken's writing, but it doesn't detract from the suspense, the violence, murder and the dark side of the story. Hey, it'll cost you nothing to click right now on Amazon's brilliant LOOK INSIDE facility and get a feel of Ken's engaging writing style.
