Ex-hitman Larry Laughlin got out of Mexico alive, but now he’s a haunted man. The final step to laying his ghosts to rest requires killing his newly paroled father.

But while he’s gathering hidden funds to finance his plans, he’s ambushed by an unlikely traveling companion: a young abused teen named Brooklyn, who refuses to be left behind.

Larry and Brooklyn set out to save his brother and complete his patricidal task, but one wrong misstep drops yet another aching tragedy on Larry’s burdened shoulders. Nearly mad with his hunger for vengeance, Larry seeks his final nemesis in the heart of New York City. But what he finds will threaten more than just his life: Larry Laughlin damned himself long ago.

International Suspense Novel For Review

The Fourth Rule
By Douglass Seaver
Publisher: Oak Tree Press
Published: December 2014
ISBN: 978-1610091565
Pages: 291
Genre: International Suspense

The Fourth Rule, an international suspense novel, is a fast-paced, literary adrenalin rush! It’s the story of a man’s struggle to keep the secret of his brother’s disappearance from the CIA.

After returning from three years as a Green Beret in Vietnam, Mark Grant vanishes. Twenty-two years later, the CIA sends two private investigators to question Matthew Grant about his brother’s disappearance. Matthew denies knowing anything, but the investigators don’t believe him. For over two decades, he has lived the fourth rule—“tell no secrets”, but now he faces a serious challenge. Jack Straw, a rogue CIA agent, orchestrates a desperate manhunt to find out what happened to Mark, while Matthew races to find out why the CIA is interested in the secret he has kept for half his life. The action escalates as the rogue agent and Matthew struggle for advantage until the agent kidnaps Matthew’s sixteen year old daughter to ransom her for information on Matthew’s brother. One night the two meet halfway across the Brooklyn Bridge (the book cover) to exchange information on where Matthew’s daughter is held and the location of Matthew’s missing brother.

The story reaches a climax when Matthew rescues his kidnapped daughter, kills the rogue agent, and prevents a terrible wrong from the past being repeated. The question of what happened to Mark Grant remains unanswered until the last paragraph in the book, when the secret is revealed to the reader, but not to any of the characters in the book. Thus, Matthew lives up to the fourth rule—“tell no secrets”.
