Because I have so little time to read these days, I love when I get my hands some something completely different, and preferably kick-ass-awesome! The Maddest of Men is just that.
While most of you probably know Ofelia Gränd from her lumberjack trope series, Nortown, in her newest story, we leave the woods of Sweden far behind for the concrete streets of a post-apocalyptic city.
The redheaded, Grayham may look angelic, but in reality, he is the inquisitor and executioner for Cham, a crime boss that deals in everything from drugs to prostitution. You don't want to cross Cham, because if you do, you have to face Grayham. And he isn't your everyday, run of the mill, thug. Grayham has supernatural powers that make him very, very good at his job.
Creed is a government retrieval agent on a suicide mission. More of a pencil pusher than spy, when Creed is sent in undercover to confirm the rumors that Cham has a person with special powers on his payroll, he is in way over his head.
I don't want to give too much away, but this was a story I couldn't put down. It's dark and gritty, even violent, but at the same time, it is as much of a romance as any of those other things. In fact, I do believe this is my favorite out of all the Ofelia Gränd romances. And that says a lot since I was pretty crazy about Once in May.
If you're in the mood for something a little different, definitely hot, with men that aren't exactly good guys, this might just be the book for you!
You can pick up The Maddest of Men on Amazon HERE! Or read it on Kindle Unlimited!
To prove his loyalty to Cham, Grayham is willing to do anything, and he does. He helps Cham run his empire by finding out the truth by any possible means. It's not as hard as it may seem, all he has to do is ask the right questions, and his internal polygraph will tell him if someone is lying or not. And when they lie—well he deals with that too. Life as an executioner can get quite lonely, not that Grayham plans on doing anything about it. It would kill him to have to off a lover.
Creed is a retrieving agent on a mission. He is to infiltrate one of Carona's drug organisations to get to the inquisitor. Rumour states the man with the fiery red curls has supernatural powers; it also says anyone coming close to him disappears. Creed has no idea how he's going to make it out alive or why his supervisor sent him in without backup. But, when an opening to work as a waiter at one of the drug lord's parties presents itself Creed sets to work.
In a world where people compensate for the years of bombings and starvation with clinic bought physical perfection a man with crooked teeth and mismatching eyes stands out. Grayham notices the waiter watching him straight away. If he's there to harm Cham, he'll deal with it. Creed knows he must get his hands on the inquisitor so when he is invited to the man's flat he agrees to come even though he knows it might be the last thing he'll ever do.
Note: This story contains graphic violence, on page death of secondary character, and sex acts between male adults.
