    Description

    A string of killings. An identity stolen. Only he can find the truth.

    Reese Roberts was the guardian of Iron City. Its fearless protector. The only one willing to do whatever it takes...until he was shot on the streets and left paralyzed from the waist down. Now, the vigilante known as the Roach has disappeared. Faded into legend. 

    It’s been years since Reese could take on crime and clean up the streets. He’s a shriveled old drunk, living like a hermit and waiting for his life to end. All that’s left to do is wallow in the mistakes that led him here. To wonder if he went too far. 

    But when a copycat steals his suit and takes justice into his own hands, a new killer emerges, leaving brutal messages behind. He wants to eliminate the Roach for good this time. 

    It’s time for Reese to re-emerge from his shell and fight back. Who else can stop the flurry of killings? Definitely not the corrupt police department. Iron City needs the Roach again. Only, this time, he’ll need to save it without his legs.

    Commentaires

    "A dark and powerful journey into the broken mind of a crippled vigilante, clawing his way out of despair to protect his legacy and his city. Reader beware: once you crack this novel open, you won't be able to close it!” (Jeremy Robinson, NY Times best-selling author of Tribe and The Others)

    “A world worthy of being a sister city to Gotham. Gritty, grimy, and mesmerizing.“ (Actor Lou Diamond Phillips, Prodigal Son; La Bamba)

    “Great narration and dialogue, Rhett C. Bruno brings to life a character who’d rather be dead...or at least has a death wish." (Darick Robertson, co-creator of The Boys - now a Prime Original Series) 

    “White-knuckled and unfiltered. The Roach plunges you into the filth of the city and holds you under.“ (James S. Murray, number-one best-selling author of the Awakened series and star of truTV’s Impractical Jokers

    The novel was great. Bray makes it classic.

    Reese is a beast! Don't mess with the Roach!

    Amazing work! This is an another great book by Rhett C. Bruno and Mr. Bray IS The Roach. Bray was made for this character. Full of action and unexpected twists, this novel really brings it.

    I have completely gobbled this book up twice already. I will listen again until we convince the author to write another story about our Roach.

    Edit:
    As I read/listen to this again it brings to mind Gotham, but dirtier and more crime-ridden.
    It reminds me of Watchmen, but the characters are exponentially better developed. I never thought I'd use heartfelt and intense action to describe the same book but here we are. I really felt like this was as much a mystery and thriller as it is vigilante/hero/anti-hero.

    Absolutely entertaining

    I could not stop until I finished. The story was so detailed and complex. I had to know what happened next. The writing was brilliant, and the narration was perfection. I highly recommend this book. It was a great start to entertainment in this new year.

    Great Story

    As a comic book kid and a fan of more mortal superheroes like Punisher and Batman, this was a great listen. RC Bray was spectacular as always, but the story was engaging as is. I’d definitely check out more works by Bruno in the future.

    The story we never knew we wanted

    Superhero fiction might be the greatest phenomenon of our time, from the Avengers to the Justice League and beyond, but what we didn’t know we needed was the Roach. I’ve read/listen to everything Rhett C. Bruno has done and this is far and away the best of it all. It’s gritty and violent but heartfelt and realistic at the same time. This is not your Hollywood blockbuster. This thing has heart.

    The hero we all need

    Just finished it a little while ago. Rhett you have written the best story to date that has been read by the almighty Bray. I’ve listened to a lot of his narrations and this one just really stands out on its own. Amazing characters and development through the whole thing. May be the last we see of the roach but the premise of a hero/antihero who has suffered a severe tragedy is an idea you should run with. I’d love to see another one about someone else who maybe not paralyzed but suffered a career ending trauma. And had to rise up again after alcohol or drugs, coma whatever and fight their personal demons to become that hero again. Well done my friend, keep on writing and we will keep reading and listening.

    Hell the story.

    As resourceful as Batman and as gritty eze watchman. I truly love house centred the roaches through the entire book, how he knew exactly who and what he is and was.
