Brotherhood of the Silent Hand by Avon J Bellamy, Sr. is a powerful, suspenseful thriller that will, undoubtedly, put readers on the edge of their seats. It is a great offering that bundles intrigue, crime, and romance into one deal for the reader, and you quickly find yourself moving from one surprising turn to another. An African-American agent gets one of the most dangerous assignments of his life — and only he is equipped to handled it properly. He is tasked with the one mission of destroying the Colombian cartel. But this agent falls in love with the very assassin who is paid to kill him. Now, can he wake up in time to save himself? Can Marrita Del Shone return his love and forget her own mission to destroy this man? The answers are in these thrilling pages.

I was immediately captured by the strength of the author’s prose and its descriptive power, compelling readers to form vivid images of the setting in their mind. “It was dark and tomb quiet in the palm grove. The starlight filtering through palm leaves overhead gave it the look of an ancient cathedral masterfully crafted by the hand of an extremely gifted artist with gothic leanings working with sand, bay water, swaying palm trees, and dark sky.” Avon J Bellamy, Sr. has the unusual gift of touching on interesting details of the story without making readers lose sight of the bigger conflict and picture. The prose is exquisite, the characters are phenomenal, complex, and well-fleshed out. And then there is the huge conflict in the story and the intensity of action that punctuate the pages, all of which makes it a gripping tale. Brotherhood of the Silent Hand is cunningly plotted and readers will find themselves turning the pages nonstop, eager to find out what happens next.
