THE SILENCE OF DEATH by Kyle Lybeck
Private Paul Eastbrook was a member of Special Forces during the Vietnam conflict. When a routine mission goes terribly wrong, Paul finds himself on the wrong side of justice and held accountable for dark deeds that chain him to an ugly and lonely future.
Decades later, Scott Eastbrook is released from prison and angry as hell. He has a plan in place to avenge his father’s imprisonment and the brutal and bloody trail of this revenge will mark a map of many states. He takes a reluctant accomplice along, one who has a lot of insight into the history of the matter. And then things get even stranger.
Kyle Lybeck is the author of two collections, with THE SILENCE OF DEATH, he flexes his muscles on a longer work. The characters are well drawn and the brutality is just that. The story moves at a good pace and delivers us to an ending that is a fist to the jaw. THE SILENCE OF DEATH is an edgy revenge thriller with a lot of heart and even more blood. (John Boden)
